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.
Despacito is now the most-viewed video on YouTube with almost 3 billion views. I've never even seen the video—and I'm really okay with it.
