MIAMI, FL. (July 11, 2017). – International superstar and creator of the global smash “Despacito” Luis Fonsi makes a historic climb to the #1 spot of Billboard’s Top Radio Songs Chart making it the first predominantly Spanish single to take the airplay crown in the United States.

Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber’s Despacito clinches #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for a ninth consecutive week and tops the Digital Song Sales chart for the tenth week. The record shattering global hit continues to top radio charts in Latin America and non-Spanish speaking countries such as France, Australia, India, and Italy.

“Despacito,” also remains at the top of multiple Billboard charts including Hot Latin Songs for 23 consecutive weeks, Latin Airplay for 19 straight weeks as well as #1 on Spotify, Shazam and YouTube’s global charts. In addition to the worldwide success of the song, just last week, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee received two “Premios Juventud” awards in the categories “Perfect Combination” and “Best Song To Sing.” 

Fonsi was unable to attend due to being in the middle of his “Love + Dance World Tour” in Europe, which kicked off on July 1st. The already successful tour is currently traveling through 19 cities in Spain, Portugal, and Italy to later travel through Argentina, Chile and the United States.
