Billboard Hot 100: Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s ‘Despacito’ still number-one, Ed Sheeran sets new record

“Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber made history when it hit number-one on the Billboard Hot 100, marking the first mostly Spanish-language song to top the chart since “Macarena” more than 20 years ago. And the song keeps holding onto its perch. On the chart dated June 10 it spends its third straight week on top. Check out the rest of this week’s top 10 above.

There isn’t much movement in the rest of the top-five either. “That’s What I Like” by Bruno Mars holds steady at number-two, while “I’m the One” by DJ Khaled with Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne remains at number-three. “Humble” by Kendrick Lamar rebounds a bit from fifth to fourth position, switching placed with “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran which is down to number-five.

“Shape of You” held on to number-one for an impressive 12 weeks. That wasn’t a record, but the song does achieve a milestone this week by spending its first 20 weeks on the chart in the top five — longer than any other song. The previous record-holder was Bieber’s “Sorry,” which spent its first 19 weeks in the top-five from 2015 to 2016.

Speaking of records, we’re still keeping an eye on “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay. It’s at number-eight this week, down two spots from last week, but it’s still holding on, giving The Chainsmokers their 56th straight week in the top-10. They’re still 13 weeks away from catching Katy Perry, who spent 69 weeks in a row in the top-10.
