Between 18 February 2017 and 1 September 2018, “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi (b. Luis Alfonso López-Cepero), Daddy Yankee (b. Ramón Rodríguez; both Puerto Rico) and – on the remix from 6 May 2017 – Justin Bieber (Canada) spent 56 non-consecutive weeks at No.1 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart.

“Bailando”, by Enrique Iglesias (Spain), Descemer Bueno and Gente de Zona (both Cuba), previously held the record with 41 consecutive weeks at No.1 from 17 May 2014 to 21 February 2015.

‘Despacito” spent 35 consecutive weeks at No.1 from 18 February to 14 October 2017; 17 consecutive weeks at No.1 from 6 January to 28 April 2018; three consecutive weeks at No.1 from 4 to 18 August 2018; and one week at No.1 on the chart dated 1 September 2018 (its 84th week on Hot Latin Songs).

On 20 October 2018, in its 91st week on the chart, “Despacito” climbed from No.3 to No.2 and was still threatening to add to its 56-week reign at the top, 20 months after first reaching No.1.

From 18 February to 29 April 2017 (11 weeks), “Despacito” was credited to Luis Fonsi feat. Daddy Yankee only. Justin Bieber was added as a featured artist from 6 May 2017, when the remix of the track became available for download/streaming.

“Despacito” was replaced at No.1 by “Mi Gente” (“My People”), by J Balvin, Willy William and Beyoncé, on 21 October 2017 before reclaiming top spot from “Mi Gente” after that track's 12-week reign, on 6 January 2018. “Despacito”’s two most recent visits to No.1 have been disrupted by the remixed version of “Te Boté” (“I Dumped You”), performed by Casper Mágico, Nio García, Darell, Nicky Jam, Ozuna & Bad Bunny.
