Luis Fonsi And Daddy Yankee

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” video has established a new record. The clip reached 5 billion views on YouTube, making it the most watched video worldwide by the long shot (the next closest is Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s “See You Again,” which has 3.5 billion views). What’s more, the video has increased by one billion views in the last six months alone.

“The day we shot the video, and I don’t know how many videos I’ve done, you could see the crew and the dancers and everybody enjoying the song. It was like no other video,” Luis Fonsi previously told Billboard about his experience filming the record-smashing video. “People were dancing on the streets when nobody was filming. Normally you would get somebody saying, ‘Can you please shut it off until we go back to filming again?’ But here, people were asking to leave it on. That was the first sign, right there.”

Last year, “Despacito” spent 16 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100, tying Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s 1995 hit “One Sweet Day” for the most weeks at No. 1. On Billboard’s Latin charts, “Despacito” is still at No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart, becoming the longest-running song with 49 weeks atop of the chart.

To celebrate the news, Luis Fonsi shared on Instagram a one-minute video in which he gathered the best clips of how the song became contagious worldwide.

Black-ish star Anthony Anderson is currently being investigated by Los Angeles Police following a crime report it received.

According to The Blast, Anderson is under investigation “for allegedly assaulting a woman after she catered an event thrown by the actor.” The incident happened last year, the report added, and it was after the event she catered for the actor.

She met with Anderson a second time to discuss future business opportunities when the alleged assault occurred, the report added.

LAPD told The Blast, “We have a crime report listing him (Anderson) as a suspect in a crime. It is an open investigation.”

A spokesperson for Anderson denies the claim and tells The Blast, “It’s unfortunate that anyone can file a police report whether it is true or false. The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim.”
