Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber's "Despacito" has reached the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100, Billboard reports. The song becomes the first Spanish-language track to reach the top spot on the chart in more than 20 years, following a 14-week run at No. 1 for "Macarena" in 1996. "Despacito" is the first No. 1 for Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, while Bieber earns his fifth.

"Despacito" tallied 54.3 million U.S. streams in the week ending May 11, and topped the Digital Song Sales chart with 104,000 downloads. The song's remix with Justin Bieber, released on April 17, made up 73 percent of the song's sales in the past week before reaching No. 1. The song has previously reached the top of the charts in more than 30 different countries.

Bieber, who earned the No. 1 song in the past week with DJ Khaled's "I'm The One," is the only artist to replace himself at No. 1 with two different songs. Khaled's single fell to No. 3 on the chart.
