Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, leads the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a fourth week

“Despacito” (released on Universal Music Latino / Raymond Braun / SchoolBoy / Def Jam / UMLE / Republic Records) leads the Streaming Songs chart for a fourth week, with 69.6 million U.S. streams (up 6 percent) in the week ending June 1, according to Nielsen Music. Only one song has posted a greater weekly total on Streaming Songs (which began on March 2, 2013): Baauer’s “Harlem Shake,” which peaked with 103 million, powered heavily by user-generated clips featuring the song’s audio, the week that the survey debuted. “Despacito” passes prior runner-up “Humble.,” by Kendrick Lamar, which logged 67.4 million (May 6). The only other song to top 60 million: Adele’s “Hello” (61.6 million, in its first week, Nov. 14, 2015). “Despacito” also dominates the On-Demand Streaming Songs chart for a third week, up 5 percent to 29.4 million on-demand domestic clicks.

“Despacito” rules the Digital Song Sales chart for a fifth week, with 148,000 downloads sold (up 8 percent) in the week ending June 1; the remix with Bieber accounts for 80 percent of the song’s sales (up from 77 percent a week ago and 73 percent each of the two previous weeks).

On Radio Songs, “Despacito” keeps at No. 7, with 101 million in all-format airplay audience (up 15 percent) in the week ending June 4, adding the Hot 100’s top Airplay Gainer award for a third consecutive week.

With a fourth week atop the Hot 100, “Despacito” is the second-longest-leading of the three Spanish language-dominant Hot 100 No. 1s in the chart’s history. Los Del Rio’s “Macarena” ruled for 14 weeks in 1996 and Los Lobos’ “La Bamba” (the only all-Spanish-language No. 1; the other two are sung mostly in Spanish) reigned for three weeks in 1987. “Despacito” (whose title translates to “slowly” in English) tops the Hot Latin Songs chart for an 18th week.

DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One,” featuring Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne, tallies a fourth week at No. 3 after debuting atop the May 20-dated Hot 100. The collab climbs 3-2 on Digital Song Sales (75,000, down 6 percent) and dips 2-3 on Streaming Songs (42.3 million, down 6 percent), while holding at No. 8 on Radio Songs (92 million, up 15 percent). “One” collects a fifth week at No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs chart.
