Despacito Sets Record For Most Streamed Song Of All Time!!!

 Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” from Universal Music Latin Entertainment, has officially become the most streamed track of all time, just six months after its release.  Already shaping up to be the biggest hit of 2017, the song and accompanying remix featuring Justin Bieber (UMLE/RBMG/Def Jam/Republic Records), now have combined global streams in excess of 4.6 billion plays across leading streaming platforms.  With “Despacito,” Justin Bieber surpasses his own record that he previously set with “Sorry” and its associated remixes, which to date have accumulated 4.38 billion plays. After dominating radio, streaming, and music videos during the past six months, “Despacito” shows no signs of slowing, with a long line of industry accolades, achievements and records eclipsed on its unprecedented ascent to the top of the global charts.  Commenting on the milestone, Luis Fonsi said, “Streaming is a connector for audiences worldwide and it has helped my music reach every corner of the planet. It is truly an honor that ‘Despacito’ is now the most streamed song in history.”  “Streaming has democratized music consumption, it has made Latin music increasingly relevant on the charts and it has amplified our songs and videos to a world stage,” said Jesús Lopez, Chairman & CEO of Universal Music Latin America & Iberian Peninsula. “‘Despacito’ has broken every record thanks to Luis Fonsi’s talent and creativity, which have positioned him as a pillar of Latin music for the past 20 years. I also congratulate Erika Ender, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber for their valuable contributions, as well as the different teams involved in the success of this song.”...

Juanes Hace Historia Con #MisPlanesSonAmarte

 After a very long wait, el cantautor colombiano Juanes has finally released his new visual album Mis Planes Son Amarte. Siguiendo los pasos de artistas como Beyoncé, who kicked off the visual album trend in 2016 with the Grammy Award-winning Lemonade, Juanes now brings us his own visual narrative que es una verdadera obra de arte. A collection of 12 amazing tracks, each with its own corresponding video, Mis Planes Son Amarte is the first visual album by a major Latin music artist and follows the story of a Colombian astronaut on a search for love. Directed by Latin Grammy winner Kacho López Mari, the project has been creating tremendous anticipación for months, as multiple songs were revealed prior to its release. “Hermosa Ingrata” and “El Ratico” quickly became fan favorites, while “Goodbye For Now,” una colaboración especial with renowned producer Poo Bear, has been stirring quite a buzz recently because… es la primera canción that Juanes has recorded en inglés! Amigas, ¿qué les parece? Mis Planes Son Amarte is the perfect combination of audio and visual media that highlights el genio de Juanes both as a guitarist and as a storyteller. El álbum ya está disponible en todas las plataformas digitales. Tracklist (click links to watch the videos): “Perro Viejo” “Angel” “Fuego” “Alguna Vez” feat. Fonseca “El Ratico” feat. Kali Uchis “Hermosa Ingrata” “Bendecido” “Es Tarde” “Actitud” “Mis Planes Son Amarte” “Goodbye For Now” “Esto No Acaba”   Nuestra Lynn Ponder, y the whole Web City Girls team, have always been big supporters of Juanes y Lynn notes that his humility and kindness are what make him un artista extraordinario.
