Despacito becomes most-viewed video on YouTube

Despacito becomes most-viewed video on YouTube

It seems like it was an inevitability that "See You Again" would be surpassed, but "Despacito" didn't take long to grab the throne. And now the music video of "Despacito" has added a yet another feather to its hat by setting a new record.

"See You Again", which became the most watched video in July, has also reached three-billion views, but needs almost 70 million views to catch up with "Despacito".

The Bieber version has logged 12 weeks at number one on the USA singles chart, the first Spanish-language song to reach the top spot since "Macarena" in 1996.

The Spanish language ditty by Luis Fonsi featuring Justin Bieber and Daddy Yankee is now YouTube's most popular clip. I'm in love with your Despacito Dance Video. "Now a decade later, it feels incredible to be a part of the most-viewed video on YouTube". And these numbers don't include the audio video of the song's remix, featuring Justin Bieber, which had the biggest YouTube debut of 2017 and now stands at over 464 million views. "Thank you so much and I can't wait to see you guys!"

Talking about his experience of choreographing the song, Davar said: "When Universal Music approached me to direct and choreograph the India video, I was very excited".

YouTube also recognized the influence and growth of Latin music overall on its platform.

In YouTube record terms, Psy's 'Gangnam Style' was left in the dust Friday with 2.92 billion views.
