Europe is heading toward summer – but will the continent’s music addicts be bringing Luis Fonsi and his summer hit “Despacito” with them to the beach as we have already speculated weeks ago? The answer is: yes!
Although he seems to be slowly gaining ground in terms of file sharing activity, the evolution to big star seems to be sticking long term.

He has held strong to the No. 1 spot on Billboard Hot 100 for the second week in a row now, which shows just how popular his music is at the moment. Amid this hype, file sharing activity reached another peak on May 30, 2017, when 31,876 P2P users shared his music. Unsurprisingly, he managed to hold his top spot on the top 10 file sharing charts for music artists in South America and, equally impressive, climbed up the ladder in the worldwide charts in May to spot 14! We’ll make sure to keep you in the loop on new developments with this sizzling Latin popstar of the summer, so keep your ears perked for more on Luis Fonsi and keep the Puerto Rican’s hot hit spinning!
