"Despacito" (American Spanish: [despa'sito]; English: "Slowly") is a single by Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi featuring Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee from Fonsi's upcoming studio album. On January 12, 2017, Universal Music Latin released "Despacito" and its music video, which shows both artists performing the song in La Perla neighborhood of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and the local bar La Factoría. The song's music video is the first video to reach over four billion views on YouTube. The song was written by Luis Fonsi, Erika Ender and Daddy Yankee, and was produced by Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo. It is a reggaeton-pop song composed in common time with lyrics about having a sexual relationship, performed in a smooth and romantic way. Commercially, the song topped the charts of 47 countries and reached the top 10 of ten others, making it both Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's most successful single to date. It became the first song primarily in Spanish to top the Billboard Hot 100 since "Macarena" (Bayside Boys Mix) in 1996. The official video for "Despacito" on YouTube received its 1 billionth view on April 20, 2017 after 97 days, becoming the second-fastest video on the site to reach the milestone – behind Adele's "Hello". It received its 2 billionth view on June 16 and its 3 billionth view on August 4 after 154 and 204 days, respectively, making it the fastest video on the site to reach both milestones. As of September 23, it has been viewed 3.8 billion times. With its 3.3 million certified sales plus track-equivalent streams, "Despacito" is one of the best-selling Latin singles in the United States. Additionally, "Despacito" became the world's most streamed song of all time with 4.6 billion streams in July. In September 2017, Billboard ranked it the fifth best Latin song of all time. Several remix versions were released following the single's success. On March 17, 2017, both a solo pop version and a salsa version featuring Puerto Rican musician Victor Manuelle were released. On April 17, 2017, a remix version featuring Canadian singer Justin Bieber was released; this version helped to improve the song's chart performance in numerous countries, particularly in the English-speaking world. On May 5, 2017, both an electronic version produced by American trio Major Lazer and Colombian DJ MOSKA and an urban version produced by Sky were released.
