7. Bieber effects
In 2017, Bieber jumped on a remix Luis Fonsi and Far Yankee‘s “Despacito,” helps lead the trail to the top of Billboard Hot 100. The success marked for the first time that a song sung primarily in Spanish reached No. 1 in the United States for over 20 years and followed in the footsteps of Those from the river‘s 1996 hit “Macarena.” The song would spend 16 weeks on top of the chart and tie the record that was held Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men̵
“Despacito” also helped Bieber make another bit of history himself. Reaching the chart’s peak a week after “I’m the One” he collapsed with DJ Khaled, did the same, it made him the first artist to ever hook new No. 1 in back-to-back weeks.
