“Despacito” Becomes First YouTube Video To Reach Six Billion Views

“Despacito” is still breaking records two years after its release.

The music video for Luis Fonsi’s 2017 hit featuring Daddy Yankee has become the first video in YouTube history to reach six billion views.

The video is currently the most-viewed on YouTube. It’s closest competition is Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” with 4.09 billion views and Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s “See You Again,” with 4.02 billion views.

Before reaching its latest milestone, “Despacito” was the first video in YouTube history to reach three billion views, four billion views and five billion views.

The video features Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, but not Justin Bieber, whose addition to the track helped make it a 16-week #1 hit on the Billboard chart.
