The hit song displaced songs like See you again, a song featuring Wiz Khalifa and Charles Puth.

"See You Again", which became the most watched video in July, has also reached three-billion views, but needs almost 70 million views to catch up with "Despacito".

Calvin Harris is well on the way to knocking Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber off their number one throne this week as his track, Feels, soars up the singles charts.

"See You Again", the most popular release from the Fate of the Furious soundtrack, dethroned "Gangnam Style" for the distinction of most-viewed in July. Thus, to celebrate the song's huge success in India, Universal Music Group, together with choreographer, Shiamak Davar, launched the '#DespacitoMovement campaign. "Thank you so much and I can't wait to see you guys!"

"Despacito" is also the first Spanish-language song to make its way to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 since the Macarena in 1996.

"Despacito" became an global smash hit this year, topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With the vast popularity that "Despacito" has seen in only seven months, it looks like this might be a pretty tough record for future artists to break, but stranger things have happened.

It took 203 days only for the official music video for Despacito to become the most viewed video in YouTube history. "My dance company and I had a great time working on this video".
