It Leaves Shape Of You Behind With A Two-Billion-View Gap

With 6 million views and counting, the video is outstripping the runner-up Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You. The British singer’s hit, which ranks second on the view count chart, has just reached 4 billion views at the moment.

A South Korean hit Gangnam Style from Psy was the first one to set the 2 billion views record in 2012. The song has gone viral with addictive rhyme and crazy dance moves. Psy’s hit, however, is standing at the fifth position in the chart with 3.3 billion views.

However, Despacito is not the only billion-view video of Luis Fonsi. Last year, the Puerto Rican singer-songwriter also released another music video of Échame La Culpa which has reached 1.7 billion views so far.

The Video Disappeared With Five Billion Views Last Year
