Despacito rises to 13 weeks at number one in America

Luis Fonsi’s summer smash Despacito has become one of only 11 tracks to spend 13 weeks or more at the top of the U.S. pop charts.

The song, which also features Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber has also broken the record for most weeks at number one on America’s Digital Song Sales chart – at 14.

Despacito now holds the longest reign at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 countdown this year after overtaking Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You, which spent 12 weeks at number one between January and April.

One more week at the top and Despacito will tie Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk!, the Black Eyed Peas’ I Gotta Feeling, We Belong Together by Mariah Carey, Candle in the Wind 1997/Something About the Way You Look Tonight by Elton John, Los Del Rio’s Macarena, I’ll Make Love to You by Boyz II Men, and Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You, which all spent 14 weeks at number one.

The track has three more weeks to go before it can match Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s One Sweet Day, which ruled the countdown for 16 weeks in 1995 and 1996.

Bruno Mars’ That’s What I Like falls to four and Imagine Dragons’ Believer rounds out the new top five.
