Despacito Sung in 40 Countries

I’m just catching up with my pop culture and am surprised to find the extent to which the song Despacito has caught fire on social media and is popular in probably most of the countries on Planet Earth. As a language nerd, it’s fun to see Asian and European people singing in Spanish. I’m not sure when was the last time that a Latin American song was this popular, perhaps during the Lambada craze (Brasil), or perhaps when Los Lobos sang La Bamba (California). This is a video of people from 40 countries doing covers of the song.
