It’s been two years since the song was first abandoned, however, CNN reports that Justin Bieber and Luis Fonsi’s song “Despacito” has become the most popular song of all time on YouTube. The song stars the two aforementioned performers as well as Daddy Yankee.
YouTube recently revealed a new data collection in which they highlighted their top performing songs of all time, along with the songs of Justin Bieber, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. The song received 6.5 billion views and is also sung mainly in Spanish.
Last year it became the first video to reach 5 billion views, and then won the Guinness World Records title. Some of the other great songs on the graphic include Ed Sheeran’s song for which he was eventually chased, “Shape of You”.
Another song that was at the top of the chart was “Gangnam Style”, which got 3.4 billion views, and was also the biggest song ever recorded on Youtube at the time. Ironically, the success of PSY continued to break YouTube due to the fact that the platform couldn’t handle the amount of traffic.
In addition, Ed Sheeran is just an artist who actually has two songs on the list, with “Thinking Out Loud”, with 2.8 billion views. And although Justin Bieber’s song was a huge success for him and everyone else involved, it received a bit of criticism from fans when he forgot the lyrics at a concert one night.
In the video you can see below, Justin seems to forget some of the words in the song:

Whatever his sloppy performance, Justin has had great years in recent years, including the hit song with Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, but also for his marriage to the model, Hailey Baldwin.
As previously reported, Justin and Hailey obtained their official marriage license in September 2018, and earlier this year they were married in South Carolina in their first official ceremony, including family and friends.
However, not everyone was happy with their romance. Some fans on social media have assumed that Justin’s marriage to Hailey had played a role in the entry of Selena Gomez into a mental health facility.
