Though it took the “See You Again” video two years to dethrone the “Gangnam Style” video, which is now in third place for the most viewed video, “Despacito” took only seven months to climb to the #1 spot.
The original “Despacito” video garners approximately an extra 15 million (yes, million), views per week. Want to be one of those 15 mill? Check it out below:
Co-writer of the track, Erika Ender, told Forbes:
“The truth was that we [her and Luis Fonsi] never ever thought that it was going to get this big. We knew we had a hit in our hands, but we never thought that the world was going to be singing in Spanish.”
Well, we certainly are! 🎉 Stream “Despacito” on repeat below:
