Great news friends. The song “Despacito” received a wonderful title.
The undeniably catchy Spanish-language hit by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee is officially the most-streamed song of all-time when you include the times that its English-Spanish remix featuring Justin Bieber has been streamed, Universal Music Latin Entertainment announced, per the New York Daily News . If you ask me this shows the power of the spanish language.
“Despacito” did the reverse of what the word means.
“Perhaps most impressively, it only took six months for “Despacito” – which simply translates to “slowly” – to set the record. The original version was released on Jan. 13, while the remix with Bieber came out on April 17″ (new york daily news, 2017.)
per the ny post: “Despacito” was streamed 4.6 billion times as of Tuesday, Vivendi-owned Universal Music declared, noting it cobbled together stats from Spotify, Apple, Amazon and others.
The song features Justin Bieber, whose own song, “Sorry,” held the overall streaming record until “Despacito” knocked it into second place, with 4.38 billion streams.
