Every summer there is the end of summer question: What is the defining song of the summer?
By all indications their is a clear winner for the Summer of 2017.
It is a feel good song…with international appeal with a record breaking audience. It became the first song primarily in Spanish to top the Billboard Hot 100 since Macarena in 1996 and the official video received its billionth view on YouTube in April. Recently it was announced that Despacito is now the most streamed song of all time having been played 4.6 billion times across all streaming services. It saw Justin overtake the previous record he held for his song, Sorry.
Despacito literally means “Slowly” and was originally released by Puerto Rican star Luis Fonsi and Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee and was released on January 13, 2017. Justin Bieber’s remix was released on April 17th and then busted loose on English speaking charts.
