Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's fans can't get enough of infectious tune Despacito - their music video has just surpassed a record six billion views on YouTube. The Latin hitmakers released the track back in January, 2017, and more than two years on, it's still proving to be a top pick. On Sunday (24Feb19), Despacito officially became the first promo in YouTube history to smash the huge milestone, leading its closest competitor - Ed Sheeran's Shape of You - by 1.9 billion views. According to officials at the video-streaming site, during the height of the Grammy-nominated tune's popularity, its promo was being streamed an average of 25.7 million times per day. That figure has since dropped significantly, but it's still at an impressive 2.8 million average views a day so far in 2019, reports Billboard. Despacito has continued to break boundaries ever since its debut - it became the first video to break three billion views on YouTube, before going on to make history as it crossed four and five billion, too. Meanwhile, the remixed single, featuring Justin Bieber, is still flying high in the charts - it earned its 100th week on the U.S. Hot Latin Songs Chart just before Christmas (18), and remains in third place in its 109th week on the Billboard countdown. Only to Romeo Santos has spent more time on the rundown - his 2013 song Propuesta Indecente currently holds the title as the longest-charting track on the Hot Latin Songs list with 125 weeks.

Liam Payne was spotted leaving rumored girlfriend Naomi Campbell's apartment in New York on Friday (15Feb19). The couple has been reportedly dating since December (18), and the Strip That Down hitmaker jetted out to meet up with Naomi, 48, shortly after they attended the BAFTA afterparty she hosted for Vogue at at Annabel’s in Mayfair, London. It was the first time the pair had been seen together publicly, though they avoided being photographed and left the exclusive London members' club minutes apart. The 25-year-old was papped sneaking out of the side door of Naomi’s Manhattan apartment building the day after Valentine’s Day, and carried a suitcase as he climbed into a waiting car, according to British newspaper The Sun. A source told the outlet that Liam has been wooing the supermodel with secret dinner dates and sexy private messages on Instagram. "Liam thinks she's amazing and beautiful, and has said their time together has been mind-blowing," they added. "He can't believe his luck." The unlikely couple first sparked speculation of a budding relationship when they exchanged a series of flirty messages on Instagram. Commenting on a steamy black-and-white photo of Liam, Naomi wrote: "Beautiful Soul." Liam quickly replied, "Takes one to know one," with a kissy face emoji. And on a photo Naomi shared of her showing off an incredible afro hairstyle as she prepared for the Louis Vuitton show during Paris Couture Week, the Strip That Down singer wrote: "Perfection in a person... don't give me those eyes." Naomi has reportedly previously dated Quincy Jones, Prince Albert of Monaco, Mike Tyson and Usher, and was most recently linked to grime star Skepta. Meanwhile, Liam split from Cheryl, the mother of his 22-month-old son Bear, in July (18) after more than two years together.
Dua Lipa had a huge row with her boyfriend at a star-studded Grammys afterparty after she reportedly caught him flirting with women. The 23-year-old scooped the gongs for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording at the prestigious music awards ceremony, but later her night hit a bum note after she confronted her beau, Isaac Carew. According to U.K. newspaper The Sun, the British chef and model was seen flirting with other women at the bash thrown by DJ Diplo. The One Kiss hitmaker was on cloud nine after her big wins, but ended up shouting in Isaac's face, with the couple having a huge row at the party. "He told Dua she was overreacting and that he’d done nothing wrong," a source told the outlet. “She was adamant he was flirting with them and gave him the cold shoulder for the rest of the night.” This isn't the first time that Isaac, who has modeled in campaigns for Hermes, Moschino and Reiss, has reportedly flirted with other women while dating Dua. In June last year (18), The Sun obtained video of the chef dirty dancing with a mystery woman at London’s G.A.Y nightclub. Dua, who had been on tour in the U.S. at the time, forgave him and the pair has been working on their relationship. After the Grammys bust-up, Isaac shared a sweet post on Instagram, gushing about his award-winning girlfriend. "Prouder than f***ing punch. I told you you’d be walking away with two but you’re too humble to admit it. So proud of you! Ps how fit are you in this pic," he wrote alongside a snap of the pair at a pre-Grammy bash, with Dua rocking an electric blue strapless dress.
