After moving into the top slot on the Hot 100 songs chart in the previous tracking week, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" featuring Justin Bieber remains the No. 1 song in the U.S. as reflected on the May 23 chart refresh. The song leads two of the three formula charts that make up the Billboard Hot 100 while climbing another.

The Spanish/English track continues to be the best-selling single on Digital Songs for the tracking week ending May 18. In its third week at the top, "Despacito" moved 115,000 copies which is up 11 percent for the latest frame. With two versions of the song, the release with Bieber made up three-fourths of the total sales. The latest Hot 100 No. 1 also spends a second week at No. 1 on Streaming Songs having 59.4 million streams through official platforms such as Spotify and YouTube.

"Despacito" is moving quickly up Radio Songs which is tracked Monday through Sunday versus sales and streaming which is tracked Friday through Thursday. On the airplay chart, it climbs from No. 11 to No. 7 with 72 million impressions via any station that plays the song, jumping an impressive 27 percent. It becomes Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's first top 10 radio hit while giving Bieber his tenth.
