Despacito is no longer the most played song on YouTube. The title of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee has just ceded the first place of the classification to a song for children: “Baby Shark” which thus becomes the song most streamed on the video platform.
This is one of the unintended consequences of this lockdown, which has affected several countries around the world and has seen millions of parents having to put up with their children’s musical tastes.
Indeed, the increase in the number of views of the video has exploded in recent months, from around 2.5 billion in April to 7.05 billion views today.
In this colorful ranking, Ed Sheeran with “Shape of you” completed the podium.
The first artist to have surpassed one billion views on YouTube with his title Gangnam Style, Psy is now eighth.
