Despacito Does Diamond

• “Despacito,” the smash hit by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, and its remix featuring Justin Bieber, was officially certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), representing 10 million or more sales and streams in the United States. “Despacito” joins an exclusive group of only 18 songs to achieve the coveted Diamond status, and is the first Latin song ever to reach that remarkable milestone.

Universal Music Latino/Republic Records artist Luis Fonsi was recently recognized for this historic achievement during Lucian Grainge’s Universal Music Group Grammy Showcase.
