Despite some strong competition from Liam Payne, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s Despacito remix ft. Justin Bieber has held on to claim a third week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart.
The track notched up 114,000 combined sales to keep its place at the summit – its highest one-week tally to date, split between 51,000 downloads and 9.4 million streams.
Despacito is the first Number 1 single by a Puerto Rican singer in the UK since Ricky Martin’s 1999 smash Livin’ La Vida Loca. Both have now logged three weeks at the top.
