The last time we discussed Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” video it broke Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” record for the most views on YouTube. This time around the Daddy Yankee assisted video is back to break another milestone. As of recently, Fonsi’s popular visual has become the first video to hit 3 billion views on YouTube.
