Clips by Shakira, Drake, Taylor Swift and other acts were also affected.
[Editor's note: As of 2:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday (Apr. 10) a spokesperson for VEVO confirmed that all the affected videos had been reposted to the site.]
A group of hackers broke into the video for "Despacito" on Monday (Apr. 9) and defaced the clip's cover image with a picture of a masked people pointing guns, resulting in the most-viewed music video of all time being taken down temporarily. According to BBC News, the hackers, who go by Prosox and Kuroi'sh, had also broken into clips by more than a dozen other artists, including Drake, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Shakira.
