Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's Spanish-language hit ‘Despacito’ was released in January 2017 and broke several records in music streaming. It also became the most-streamed song in the world after reaching 659,355,494 views on YouTube. However, the song which also featured Justin Bieber, is no longer the most viewed video ever on YouTube.

Surpassing the number of views received by 'Despacito', South Korean company Pinkfong's dance anthem 'Baby Shark' has now claimed the crown. It has over 7.0bn views on the streaming app.
