It's just how it goes.

He suggested the song's success has important political implications: "I come from Puerto Rico and I live in Miami".

Well, now Luis Fonsi's hit single has become the most streamed song of all time, with 4.6bn streams globally, according to Universal Music Latin Entertainment.

According to Universal Music, which released the song in January, the original version of the hit and the subsequent remix featuring Justin Bieber have combined for 4.6 billion plays in just six months.

'Despacito' is currently Number One in the UK, US, and Australia, meaning its total number of streams should continue to rise sharply in the coming weeks.

"Streaming is a connector to the public in the world, and it has helped my music to reach every corner of the world", said Fonsi in a press release.

One person who seemed particularly up for celebrating the news was Justin Bieber, who was pictured hitting a pub in Laguna Beach, California, last night.

In fact, the previous record-holder was Bieber's own 'Sorry' and its various remixes, which notched up nearly 4.4bn streams.

Jesús Lopez, Chairman & CEO of Universal Music Latin America & Iberian Peninsula, added: "Streaming has democratized music consumption, it has made Latin music increasingly relevant on the charts and it has amplified our songs and videos to a world stage".

It's certainly a positive moment for Latino cultures, given that racial division that is happening in the US right now.

"'Despacito' has broken every record thanks to Luis Fonsi's talent and creativity, which have positioned him as a pillar of Latin music for the past 20 years".
