Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Bieber, rockets 48-9 on the Hot 100 following the April 17 arrival of its new Bieber-assisted remix and video. Sales account for slightly more than half the song's points on the Hot 100, as it re-enters Digital Song Sales at a new No. 8 high, exploding 510 percent to 60,000 sold; prior to Bieber's involvement, the song had reached No. 48 on the sales chart (and No. 44 on the Hot 100) and sold as many as 15,000 in a week. The track also flies 33-14 on Streaming Songs (24.1 million, up 129 percent) and enters Radio Songs at No. 39 (30 million, up 25 percent).
"Despacito" (which translates to "slowly" in English) is the first Hot 100 top 10 for both Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. The former had reached the chart with two prior titles in 2005 and 2008, peaking as high as No. 90; the latter had neared the top 10, peaking at No. 12 as featured (with Nina Sky, Gem Star and Big Mato) on N.O.R.E.'s "Oye Mi Canto" in 2004. Bieber adds his 12th Hot 100 top 10.
Until "Despacito," what was the last mostly-Spanish-language song to hit the Hot 100's top 10? We have to dance all the way back to 1996 for Los Del Rio's pop-culture juggernaut, and 14-week No. 1, "Macarena" (powered by its Bayside Boys remix). "Despacito" additionally tops the Hot Latin Songs chart for a 12th week.
