"Despacito" - a racy track full of sexual innuendo which features Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee - went viral soon after its release in January and found an even wider audience in April when pop celebrity Justin Bieber appeared in a remix.

"Despacito" - which means "slowly" in Spanish - has spent 10 weeks at number one on the U.S. singles chart, the first Spanish-language song to reach the top spot since "Macarena" in 1996.

Summer smash "Despacito" is now the most streamed song of all time.

The PIL plead that a new Article to the Constitution can not be simply aided by a presidential order as has been done in 1954. The Bench agreed to schedule the case before a three-judge Bench after six weeks.

"Despacito" has become the most streamed track of all time with more than 4.6 billion plays across streaming platforms.

Fonsi said in a statement that streaming has helped his music reach every corner of the planet.

"What's happened with this song is just insane", Fonsi then told BBC, admitting that he never expected the song to be the monster hit it's become.

"I don't want to use the word accident because I was trying to write a hit, but I didn't plan for it to cross over", he said. "I just wanted to make people dance".

Latin pop hits such as "Despacito" have become a phenomenon thanks to streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music that have "democratized music consumption", according to Jesús Lopez, Chairman & CEO of Universal Music Latin America & Iberian Peninsula.

Just below that is Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" which now had 4.07 billion streams.
