Daddy Yankee kicked off 2019 with the release of "Con Calma" featuring Snow, an energetic, bilingual remake of Snow’s 1992 hit "Informer," which in no time became a global viral sensation.

On Wednesday night (June 12), the official music video, which was directed by Marlon Peña in Los Angeles and Toronto and premiered Jan. 23, reached 1 billion views on YouTube, becoming Yankee’s fifth music video with this feat following "Despacito," "Dura," "Shaky Shaky," and his collaboration with Chino & Nacho in "Andas en mi Cabeza." 

"Only four months after the premiere of the video of 'Con Calma,' the song that has everyone dancing around the world, has surpassed 1 billion views on the YouTube platform," Yankee shared the news on Instagram, also highlighting the times his track hit the No. 1 spots on the Billboard, iTunes, and Shazam charts among others.

Another Latino artist to enter YouTube's Billion Views Club this year is Pedro Capo, who with his reggae-infused Caribbean remix of "Calma" featuring Farruko, surpassed 1B in eight months.
