"Despacito" Ties Billboard Hot 100 Record
Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, has been heating up the charts all summer long, and now it has edged its way one step closer to Billboard Hot 100 chart history.
With 16 weeks to its name at No. 1, "Despacito" is tied for most weeks ever in the top spot with Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day," which spent 16 weeks at No. 1 in 1995 and 1996.
With one week left to go to potentially surpass the old record, will "Despacito" dethrone "One Sweet Day"? According to a Billboard report, Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" may head it off at the pass. Regardless, the saucy jam has already left an indelible mark on the 59-year history of the Billboard charts.
