Despacito was massive in 2017. Performed by Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi, the song caught people’s imagination and when Justin Bieber added a vocal to the remix the song became one of the biggest hits ever.

The song reached Number 1 in just four weeks and spent eleven weeks at Number 1.

It was knocked off the top for a week in July by a charity single raising funds for the victims of the Grenfell fire disaster in London and then for a week by DJ Khaled in July 2017. Even a change in streaming ratios for the chart didn’t stop the single returning to Number 1 it was that popular!

By the end of 2017 the single had combined sales of 2.3 million!
