A third fact you may find surprising is how quickly this video took the top spot according to Mashable.com,
The song, whose title means "slowly" in Spanish, took over Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's "See You Again", which only made it its way to the number one spot last month, after overtaking Psy's "Gangnam Style", which formerly held the position for over four years.
"See You Again" was released in 2015, which means it took Despacito only seven months to beat a song which spent two years making its way up.
