WHAT IT IS: The Puerto Rican actor and singer/songwriter might be the antithesis of an overnight success—he began his recording career in 1998, and has long been a Latin music star, but he is only now garnering attention in the U.S. “Despacito” is the highest charting Spanish-language record in history, with over 320m Spotify streams, and is #1 on the Global Viral 50 chart. Justin Bieber’s remix of “Despacito” has created immense buzz as well, jumping to #1 on the iTunes singles chart, reaching #1 on the Global Top 50 chart and #3 on the U.S. Top 50 chart.
