Despacito is no longer the most watched video on YouTube

After some time at the top of the most watched videos on Youtube, Despacito goes to number 2, giving way to the famous Baby Shark. This children’s music has reached the 7,040 billion views mark, while Despacito now has 7,038 billion views.

Too bad for parents all over the world, as this highly repetitive, South Korean-produced song has grown from a simple children’s environment to a worldwide viral phenomenon. The colorful images increase the impact of the song, which in itself has captivating lyrics. And given the pandemic situation we live in, with millions of people working remotely, it’s no surprise that kids are using YouTube, among other things, to spend their time.

Released in 2015, the track is a remake of an American song, and its video was recorded by Pinkfong, a content creator owned by Korean startup SmartStudy. The video presents the rhythmic introduction of a family of sharks and their underwater hunting of small fish. An easy-to-follow dance accompanies the music, which has delighted children and parents around the world. In January 2019, music took the world by surprise, ranking 32nd on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
