'Despacito' Dominates Hot 100 & Justin Bieber Has Week's Three Top-Selling Songs

“Despacito,” “I’m the One” & new “2U” make Bieber the first act ever with the week’s top three-selling downloads.

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” featuring Justin Bieber, tops the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated July 1) for a sixth week. Bieber, meanwhile, becomes the first act with the top three best-selling digital downloads in a single week.

“Despacito” (released on Universal Music Latino / Raymond Braun / SchoolBoy / Def Jam / UMLE / Republic Records) leads the Digital Song Sales chart for a sixth week, with 140,000 downloads sold (down 1 percent) in the week ending June 15, according to Nielsen Music; the remix with Bieber accounts for 80 percent of the song’s sales for a third consecutive week. The track tops the Streaming Songs chart for a sixth week, with 69.4 million U.S. streams (up 2 percent) in the week ending June 15. On Radio Songs, “Despacito” darts 6-3 with 125 million in all-format airplay audience (up 12 percent) in the week ending June 18, adding the Hot 100’s top Airplay Gainer award for a fifth consecutive week.

“Despacito” also tops the Hot Latin Songs chart for a landmark 20th week (becoming the eighth title to reach the milestone, dating to the list’s 1986 launch) and the Songs of the Summer chart for a third week (since the survey’s return two weeks ago).

DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One,” featuring Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne, rises 3-2 on the Hot 100; it spent five weeks at No. 3 after debuting atop the May 20-dated chart. “One” adds a seventh week at No. 1 on Hot Rap Songs and a second week atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (2-1) and holds at No. 2 on Digital Song Sales (77,000, up 9 percent).

Bieber further makes history, becoming the first artist to rank at Nos. 1, 2 and 3 concurrently on Digital Song Sales, as David Guetta’s “2U,” featuring Bieber, launches at No. 3 on the sales tally with 72,000 first-week downloads sold (following its June 9 release), below “Despacito” and “I’m the One,” respectively. “2U” debuts at No. 16 on the Hot 100, also sparked by its No. 21 arrival on Streaming Songs (14.2 million U.S. clicks) and No. 40 entrance on Radio Songs (28 million impressions).

Bieber, meanwhile, doubles his longest Hot 100 reign. Of his four prior No. 1s, he had ruled the longest with “Sorry,” for three weeks in early 2016.
