The Justin Bieber-assisted smash reigns for a 42nd week, passing Enrique Iglesias' "Bailando."
Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, claims the all-longevity mark atop Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart all to itself, as the song scores a record-breaking 42nd week at No. 1 on the ranking dated Feb. 17.
The hit surpasses the 41-week reign of Enrique Iglesias' "Bailando," featuring Descemer Bueno and Gente de Zona, in 2014-15.
Erika Ender, one of the six writers of "Despacito," tells Billboard of the feat, "This song has been so unpredictable and so surprisingly wonderful, as are the spontaneous and authentic emotions for those who are able to connect, with any heart and in any language. I'm happy for this new record for Latin music."
