Story highlights

  • Swift's song didn't debut at no. 1
  • "Despacito" has topped chart since May

(CNN)"Despacito" won't be breaking a record after all.

The Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee single featuring Justin Bieber had been on pace to reign at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a 17th week.
    That would have broken the record of 16 weeks in that spot set by Mariah Carey back in 1995 with "One Sweet Day," her hit with Boyz II Men.
    Instead, the Spanish-language song tied with Carey last week, but it failed to take the title, thanks to Taylor Swift. Her debut single "Look What You Made Me Do" took this week's no. 1 spot, according to Billboard.
    The song from her forthcoming "Reputation" album didn't debut at the top of the chart, but managed to make it there the following week, thanks to record-breaking streams and some hardy sales.
    It's the fifth no. 1 for Swift.
    Not that "Despacito" hasn't had a good run.
    It's been deemed "Song of the Summer" on a few lists, including streaming giant Spotify. The original version of the song is the all-time most-streamed video on YouTube.
