Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again" Youtube Record Dethroned By "Despacito"

Just weeks after becoming the most streamed song of all time, "Despacito" has now been crowned with another title.

The Spanish language ditty by Luis Fonsi featuring Justin Bieber and Daddy Yankee is now YouTube's most popular clip.

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's hit single, "Despacito", hit the three-billion mark on YouTube a few days ago, and made history in the process. The Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee music video garnered 800,000 views from Kenya thus hitting 2,993,786,682.

The superstar collaboration, featuring Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Big Sean, is now at number two and only 500 sales behind summer smash-hit, Despacito, with four days still to go before the official list is released.

"Thank you to everybody involved".

Luis Fonsi's summer smash Despacito has become one of only 11 tracks to spend 13 weeks or more at the top of the USA pop charts.

If you haven't seen the video yet, give them another notch here. The song was a tribute to Paul Walker, an actor in The Fast and Furious film franchise who died in a auto wreck. 73 videos have surpassed one billion views, with "Gangnam Style" being the first video to do so back in December of 2012.

Also enjoying a solid improvement this week is Kesha's "Praying" (RCA/Sony), up 16-7 for the singer-songwriter's eighth top ten on the tally and the first since "Die Young" went to No. 3 in November 2012.
