Shakira and Maluma in the video for "Chantaje."

Five months after Shakira released her music video "Chantaje" featuring fellow Colombian superstar Maluma, the clip reached the one billion views on YouTube, becoming the fastest Spanish-language video to hit the billion visits mark.

After its November debut, the sultry and risqué video celebrated the milestone over the weekend joining the billion views club only a few Latin artists are a part of, including Enrique Iglesias' "Bailando," J Balvin's "Ay vamos" and Romeo Santos' "Propuesta indecente." 

Both Shak and Maluma celebrated the milestone on social media thanking the fans for all their support. "I can't believe it," Shakira said in a video along with the song's music video director. "I love you guys so much." 

In January, "Chantaje" became the fastest Spanish-language video to reach 100 million views just three weeks after its release. 

On Billboard's YouTube chart, the music video peaked at No. 1 and currently sits at No. 4 (chart dated April 15) following Luis Fonsi's "Despacito" ft. Daddy Yankee and Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You."
