It was already the most-streamed song of all time, and now 'Despacito', the catchiest hit of the Northern Hemisphere summer has smashed the YouTube record for most watched, too.

With 4.7 billion streams, the Luis Finso/Daddy Yankee hit had obviously caught the public's ear. Now, after racking up more than three billion video views, it's surpassed every other video on the planet.

Justin Bieber loved the song so much, he did his own remix – complete with Spanish lyrics – but he hasn't been able to topple the original.
