it’s perhaps a surprise to see that the most popular YouTube video of all time (and one that shows no sign of being eclipsed anytime soon), is sung almost entirely in Spanish. Featuring Puerto Rico artists Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, Despacito hit YouTube in January 2017 and racked up more than a billion views in just 97 days — the second fastest run ever. It would go on to become the fastest to garner two billion views and the first ever video to eclipse three, four, and SIX billion views.
At the time of writing it stands poised to pass the six billion mark in the very near future. In fact, its view count is growing so fast that by the time you read this it will probably have already passed that threshold.
