We Finally Have A Spanish-Language Song As The Most Streamed Song Of All Time

A Spanish-language song is now the most streamed song of all time.

Just six months since releasing “Despacito,” Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee have a lot to celebrate. The Caribbean smash hit has officially clinched the title of the most streamed song of all time. According to NPR, the song has racked up a total of 4.6 billion streams across different platforms, including Spotify and YouTube. The original version of the song has garnered almost 2.7 billion views on YouTube while the remix including Justin Bieber has reached more than 430 million views. The song has earned 1.1 billion streams on Spotify — just 200 million streams shy of being the most streamed song on Spotify of all time. That honor belongs to Drake’s “One Dance,” with 1.3 billion streams to date. The last song to hold the record for most streams was Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” which had 4.38 billion streams, meaning he helped a Spanish-language song unseat his own record.

Fonsi took to Twitter to thank all of his fans for helping to make the song the success that it is.

“Thank you for everybody involved for just loving it, supporting Latin music,” Fonsi says in the video. “Gracias por cantar in español conmigo, el mundo entero.”

Daddy Yankee also jumped on and thanked Fonsi for asking him to join in on the song.

Congratulations, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee! This is a much-deserved honor. *plays the YouTube video on repeat*

This Colombian Singer Has Officially Dropped Her First Spanish-Language Original Song

“Tienes perras en todos lados .”

Kali Uchis has never shied away from dropping bits of Spanish into her songs. She has even covered Spanish-language songs like “Sabor A Mi” (which is pretty good, btw). But until now, she has never released an original song in Spanish. Luckily, the Colombian-born singer is giving her Latino fans more of that Spanish sabor that they love. Uchis took her song “Tyrant” featuring Jorja Smith and rebooted it into a Spanish-language song with the help of Dominican singer and songwriter Fuego. Somehow, the exact same song sounds so much more sultry and sexy when the lyrics are translated to Español. It is almost like it was supposed to be in Spanish but we just weren’t ready… until now. Check it out.
