Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber are showing no signs of slowing down on the Billboard Hot 100 as their single "Despacito" commands the lead for a fifth consecutive week. The track is a remixed version featuring Bieber and has since been the hottest song in the country as the best-selling and most streamed song of the week.
On Digital Songs, "Despacito" rules for a sixth consecutive week selling 141,000 total downloads and is down a mere five percent. In its fifth week at the top of the Streaming Songs chart, the Spanish-English track received 68.3 million hits through official streaming platforms such as Spotify and YouTube, both accounting for listens on the On-Demand Streaming Songs chart. Though the song remains at No. 7 on Radio Songs, radio impressions are up 11 percent giving the song the gainer award for the week with 112 million. It should be noted that sales and streaming are tracked Friday through Thursday while airplay is tracked Monday through Sunday.
"Despacito" is charting elsewhere across the charts as it spends a 19th week on the Hot Latin Songs chart. In the previous tracking week, the Songs of the Summer chart was resurrected for another year which logs the hottest tracks from Memorial Day to Labor Day each year. Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Bieber rule the seasonal chart for a second week and it's expected that it will continue to be the summer track while sales and streams are high. Bruno Mars' "That's What I Like" follows "Despacito" on the chart for another week.
Bieber has been sitting high on the charts as a featured artist in 2017 and he'll have his name on another song debuting on the charts. David Guetta debuted the new track "2U" on June 9 featuring Bieber and it's expected to make a moderate entrance on the Hot 100 chart and its formula tallies.
