The song "Despacito" has been critically acclaimed for its consistent success and is now the most-streamed song of all time. This record supersedes Justin Bieber's "Sorry" who happens to have a remix version of the Spanish song and translated some of its lyrics into Eglish.

Despite the eminent success of the single "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, the minority of the public has found out that its lyrics are obscene. However, many listeners to the song don't even understand its words that are why the song has been unaffected with its recent controversies.

Malaysian TV and radio broadcasters ban the song

An Islamic party, Amanah, had cold reception on the song and called for it to be banned in Malaysia’s broadcast because many young children were singing it without understanding its obscene words. After being reviewed by the competent authority of the Malaysian government, it has been decided that the song "Despacito" is banned in the Malaysian TV & Radio broadcasting. However, this only applies to government-run TV & radio broadcasting stations according to Communications Minister Salleh Said Keruak.

Private stations, YouTube, and other media for streaming such music is still allowed and will be available. Although the song has been banned in the entire country's government-run TV & Radio stations, it might still be hard to break the hovering popularity of this catchy summer dance song.

"Despacito" as the most-streamed track

Aside from being the 3rd most viewed music video on YouTube, "Despacito" have taken over Justin Bieber's "Sorry" as the most-streamed track. The Spanish-languaged track by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber has been streamed approximately 4.3 billion times. 93 million of which originates from the United Kingdom which speaks for the songs insane popularity and its true potential no matter what its language is.

Universal music also announced that many people had adopted streaming platforms as their way of listening to music. Although the label has not yet mentioned the detail of the 4.3 billion figure, just a quick look at it would mean that it is plausible.

In Spotify alone, the song has a combined 1.183 billion streams (both the original and the one featuring Justin Bieber).

Actual play counts are not yet publicly available for some sites, but it's easy to assume that the total on that platform adds another few hundred million to the mix. Also, when other smaller players like Amazon, Deezer, Tidal are combined the millions would quickly grow into billions.
