Despacito (remix)

'Despacito' is now the most streamed song of all time

In a mere six months after its release date, the hit song made history on Wednesday for being the most streamed track of all time, according to Universal Music Latin Entertainment.

The song by Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi and reggaetón star Daddy Yankee and its accompanying remix featuring Justin Bieber have combined global streams of more than 4.6 billion plays across leading streaming platforms, the label said.

Misima cover steals hearts

Dion Kombeng and Jimmy Segodi have stolen the hearts of many with their Despacito cover, sung in the Misima language of Milne Bay Province.


Nimau Ulibikan ge tana ta saga

Bugul gegewena ta nuhayoho

Nimam ulatahin ge tayaliyaya

Kombeng, from a mixed parentage of New Ireland, Morobe and Central, says it was a random idea to try sing despacito in a PNG language. So Segodi tried putting the Misima language to it.

“It just worked…and yeah that's how it came out,” Kombeng said.
