'DESPACITO' IS NO. 1 ACROSS THE BOARD: "Despacito," by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber, is No. 1 for a ninth week on the Billboard Hot 100, but it's also No. 1 on several other Billboard charts too. "Despacito" is No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart for a 10th week. According to Nielsen Music, the remix of the song featuring Justin accounts for 78% of the song's sales. "Despacito" also is No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart for a ninth week, the Songs of the Summer chart for a sixth week and the Hot Latin Songs chart for a 23rd week. The track also hit No. 1 for the first time on the Radio Songs chart, which tracks radio airplay across all formats. It's now the first mostly Spanish-language song - or any non-English song - to top that chart since it was introduced in 1990. The song also has hit No. 1 on the Pop Songs chart, and it's the first mostly-Spanish track to top that chart as well. "Despacito" is No. 1 on Streaming Songs, Digital Song Sales and Radio Songs - and those are the three charts that make up the Hot 100. It's the first song to top all three charts at the same time since Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" back in August.
