As of Saturday evening, DJ Khaled’s “I’m The One (featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance The Rapper & Lil Wayne)” and Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito (featuring Justin Bieber)” hold the top two spots on the US iTunes sales chart.
“I’m The One” is #1 as of 7:40PM ET, while “Despacito” is positioned at #2. They both leapfrogged Niall Horan’s “Slow Hands” earlier Saturday.
Justin Bieber, notably, is the commonality between “I’m The One” and “Despacito.”
Not simply strong performers from a sales standpoint, the two songs are posting mammoth streaming numbers and quickly climbing the key radio airplay charts. “Despacito” reached the Top 5 on last week’s Billboard Hot 100, and “I’m The One” has a strong chance of debuting at #1 on this coming week’s chart.
