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

Plus, the song’s featured artist Justin Bieber passes The Beatles for a record in the top three.

“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 141,000 downloads sold (down 5 percent) in the week ending June 8; the remix with Bieber accounts for 80 percent of the song’s sales for a second consecutive week. The track tops the Streaming Songs chart for a fifth week, with 68.3 million U.S. streams (down 2 percent) in the week ending June 8, according to Nielsen Music. On Radio Songs, “Despacito” keeps at No. 7 with 112 million in all-format airplay audience (up 11 percent) in the week ending June 11, adding the Hot 100’s top Airplay Gainer award for a fourth consecutive week.

“Despacito” concurrently leads the Hot Latin Songs chart for a 19th week and the Songs of the Summer chart for a second week (since the latter list’s return a week ago).

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. “One” adds a sixth week at No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs chart.

As for Bieber, he’s ranked in the Hot 100’s top three with two titles, “Despacito” and “I’m the One,” for the past five weeks, and has now logged 13 total weeks with two concurrent songs in the top three; he notched eight weeks with two songs (“Love Yourself” and “Sorry”) in the top three simultaneously in January and February 2016. Bieber passes The Beatles for the most such weeks, as the Fab Four accumulated 12 weeks with at least two songs in the top five at the same time (in 1964 and 1969; in five of those frames in 1964, The Beatles monopolized the entire top three, a feat that no other artist has accomplished).

Meanwhile, Bieber could make a lofty launch on next week’s Hot 100 (dated July 1) thanks to another feature, on David Guetta’s “2U,” released Friday (June 9).
