Well Done Everyone, There's A New Most Streamed Song Ever

  • Well Done Everyone, There's A New Most Streamed Song Ever
    POSTED Jul 19 2017


    If you've streamed Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber's 'Despacito' then congratulations, you're partly responsible for the new most streamed song ever.

    As BBC report, the song has clocked up a huge 4.6 billion streams globally, with Bieber stealing the position from his own song 'Sorry'.

    The song has reached number one in more than 45 countries and is still number one in Australia where it has been in the charts for 12 weeks.

    It's had an interesting journey, gaining popularity in Spanish-speaking countries with the Yanke and Fonsi-featuring original before Bieber jumped on the remix and propelled it to popularity all around the world.

    According to Fonsi, who spoke to the BBC, Bieber had an English chorus that he could've chosen to sing but he opted to keep with the Spanish one.

    "He wanted to stay true to the original version," Fonsi said.

    "He just wanted to do the song because he loved it. And I think you have to tip your hat to him, because he took the time to phonetically learn the chorus in Spanish."

    Fonsi is pretty realistic about ever following the unprecedented success of 'Despacito'. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime thing," he said.

    Ed Sheeran's 'Shape Of You' rounds out the top three most streamed songs in the world, also clocking up over 4 billion streams.
