Trivia: Despacito is the most streamed song in history, the longest-running Billboard no.1, and the first Spanish-language US no.1 since the Macarena. The original music video, which doesn’t even feature the Biebs, is the most viewed YouTube video of all time. It was so popular this summer that the Official Charts Company created a new rule to stop it being no.1 forever. It wasn’t a very successful move, however – Despacito returned to the top a month after the rule was introduced, and none of the no.1s since have been half as enjoyable.
Best bits: 1. Despacito, this is how we do it down in Puerto Rico
2. Quiero ver bailar tu pelo, quiero ser tu ritmo
3. My sunrise on the darkest day, got me feelin’ some kinda way
