New York — The music video for the No. 1 hit song Despacito has a new record — it's become the most popular clip on YouTube of all-time with more than three billion views.

YouTube announced Friday that Luis Fonsi's ubiquitous song with Daddy Yankee has surpassed previous record holder See You Again, the song by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth from the Furious 7 soundtrack.

Despacito became an international smash hit this year, topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The record-breaking video does not include the popular remix with Justin Bieber; that version has been viewed more than 464 million times.

Despacito is on track to become the first video to reach three billion views on YouTube. The video is also the most "liked" video on YouTube.
