It's been two years since the song was first released, however, CNN reports that Justin Bieber and Luis Fonsi's song, "Despacito," became the most popular song of all time on YouTube. The song features the two artists mentioned above along with Daddy Yankee.
YouTube recently revealed a new collection of data in which they pointed out their greatest performance songs of all time, with Justin Bieber, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's song on top. The song has 6,500 million visits and is also sung mainly in Spanish.
Last year, it became the first video to reach 5 billion views, and later won the Guinness World Records title. Some of the other great songs on the list include Ed Sheeran's song for which he was finally sued, "Shape of You."
Another song that was at the top of the list was "Gangnam Style,quot;, which obtained 3.4 billion views, and was also the biggest song for YouTube at that time. Ironically, PSY's success came to break YouTube due to the fact that the platform could not handle the amount of traffic.
In addition, Ed Sheeran is just an artist who has two songs on the list, with "Thinking Out Loud,quot;, with 2.8 billion views. And although Justin Bieber's song was a great success for him and everyone else involved, he received some criticism from fans when he forgot the lyrics during a concert one night.
In the video you can see below, Justin seems to forget some of the words in the song:
Regardless of his failed performance, Justin has had a great experience in recent years, including the hit song with Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, but also for his marriage to the model, Hailey Baldwin.
As previously reported, Justin and Hailey obtained their official marriage license in September 2018, and earlier this year, they married in South Carolina in what was their first official ceremony, including family and friends.
However, not everyone was happy with their romance. Some social media fans speculated that Justin's marriage to Hailey played a role in Selena Gomez's entry into a mental health center.
