“Despacito” is a song by pop artist Luis Fonsi featuring rapper Daddy Yankee. This is a reggaeton-pop song with lyrics about sex which is delivered in a smooth and romantic way. It quickly became a global hit many years ago.


However, recently, with 7.038 billion views, “Baby Shark Dance” – the world’s most famous music video for children – has dethroned “Despacito,” and officially won the title of the Most Viewed Video on Youtube. The Spanish-language version of “Despacito” held the crown for more than three years, after first claiming the spot in August 2017 and hitting No. 1 on YouTube’s ranking of music videos that year.

First released in 2015, “Baby Shark” comes from SmartStudy, the South Korean entertainment company behind the children’s brand Pinkfong. SmartStudy has released several thousand videos under the Pinkfong label, but “Baby Shark” is its single biggest global smash hit.
