And it’s important to note that this is NOT the Justin Bieber version .

According to Google, the video surpassed the four billion mark on October 10 at 10 p.m. EST.

Seriously, though…a TON of people watch this video everyday. The video averages a total of 14 million daily views, sometimes reaching as much as 25 million views on a single day…which is friggin’ insane.

“Despacito” has also left all other YouTube videos in the dust. The video has nearly 851 million views more than the second highest-viewed video: “See You Again” by Wiz Khalifa.

“See You Again” is currently at 3,155,130,551 views. “Despacito” dominates the “Billion View Club” that includes prominent artists like Justin Bieber, Adele, Ed Sheeran, and others.

Also, the video set a previous record, becoming the first YouTube video to reach three billion views in just 203 days.

So, yeah. With Latinos dominating the entertainment world, how about we get some more representation out there.
