Unsurprisingly, ‘Despacito’ Has Broken A Youtube World Record
Yes, THAT catchy song that no one can really sing along to.

Known to most as the catchy “Justin Bieber song” that no one can really sing along to, the hit track Despacito (by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee) has become the most-watched Youtube video of all time.

With just over 3 billion views, it has snatched the number one slot from Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s See You Again – the official song for Fast & Furious 7. Given this Latin-pop sensation was already the most streamed track of all time, this feat is well deserved … and even more surprisingly Bieber doesn’t even feature in the clip. 

Averaging roughly 15 million views a week, Despacito managed in seven months what See You Again did in two years. Despite the stats, like anything popular the consensus is skewed between bonafied fans and haters. What’s new. Keep scrolling to see Twitter’s opinion on the topic.
