Daddy Yankee, the self-described “Boss”, has made history by becoming the only Latin artist to have three songs that reach 1 billion views on the Spotify platform, his representatives reported on Thursday.

“Con Calma”, along with the legendary Canadian rapper Snow and released in 2019, joins “Despacito”, with also Puerto Rican Luis Fonsi, and “Despacito (Remix)”, along with fellow Canadian Justin Bieber, as the three songs that Daddy Yankee has surpassed said millionaire mark, as detailed in a press release.

In addition, “Con Calma” received a nomination in the category of “Best Urban Fusion / Performance” at the Latin Grammy Awards and reached # 1 on the Latin Airplay chart of Billboard US and Hot Latin Songs in the United States, where it remained during seven weeks at the top.

The song also reached number one in 19 countries, broke the record as the “longest song at # 1” in Argentina for ten consecutive weeks, and reached # 1 on the Latin iTunes charts in 50 countries.

Similarly, it was certified Gold, Platinum or Multi Platinum in ten countries, Diamond in two countries and 41x Platinum (Latin) in the United States.

The music video for “Con Calma” has so far accumulated more than 2.3 billion views on YouTube.

Likewise, in 2019 “Con Calma” was positioned as the “Most viewed” video worldwide on YouTube.

Since his inception in the genre in the early 1990s, Daddy Yankee has remained among the most supported artists on music platforms and followed on social media.
