"Despacito" is officially the most ubiquitous ear worm ever, and I, for one, am here for it. After all, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em! 

Billboard reports that Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" has broken the record for YouTube's most popular video ever and it hasn't even been in this world for a year. It currently has 3,048,896,245 views and probably by the time I'm done typing it, it'll have a million more. I wish I was exaggerating, but I am not!

Previously, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's "See You Again" was the most-viewed video in YouTube history, and before that Psy's "Gangnam Style" held the title. The Justin Bieber remix doesn't even have a video yet. That shit is about to break the internet.
