The mega-hit song ‘Despacito’ by the Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi, featuring Daddy Yankee, has set a new record on YouTube by becoming the first video on the digital platform to reach 6 billion views. WOW!
It took a little over two years for the video to achieve this milestone. ‘Despacito’ has continued to break boundaries ever since its debut in January 2017. It became the first video to break three billion views on YouTube, before going on to make history as it crossed four and five billion, too. It hit the 6 billion mark on 24 February 2019.
