The music video for the No. 1 hit song Despacito has a new record - it's become the most popular clip on YouTube of all-time with more than 3 billion views.
Despite the popularity of the Justin Bieber remix of "Despacito", which is now topping the ARIA charts, it doesn't even have an official video, so the audio for that tracks sits at a comparatively small 470 million views at the present time.
When the song whose title means "slowly" in English initially went to number one in May, it was the first Spanish-language song to reach that position since Macarena did in 1996. "Thank you all for supporting since day one!"

Earlier this year tensions grew even further after Kim Jong-un accused the US and South Korea of carrying out military drills. Speaking to reporters after the council vote, Haley said "what's next is completely up to North Korea ".
But what's this? "Despacito" from Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee took just over 200 days to claim the number one spot on YouTube.
"Despacito" is also the first video to break the three billion view mark, which is impressive by itself.
Bieber, who's featured in the song's remix, recently cancelled the remainder of his goal tour, explaining in an Instagram post that he wants his "mind, heart, and soul to be sustainable". Honey Singh's remixed song Dheerey Dheerey from the movie Ashqui too has approximately 240 million views and thus placed at fifth spot.
