After being temporarily displaced by Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse Of The Heart,” Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito (featuring Justin Bieber)” returned to #1 on the US iTunes store late Tuesday.

It ceded its throne Wednesday afternoon.

The top spot on the US iTunes sales chart now belongs to Luke Bryan’s “Light It Up.”

The song, which is the lead single from Bryan’s forthcoming album, debuted on digital platforms and country radio Wednesday morning.

“Despacito” is #2 on iTunes as of 5:15PM ET, while Liam Payne’s “Strip That Down (featuring Quavo)” is #3. Thirty Seconds To Mars’ new “Walk On Water” (#4) and Niall Horan’s “Slow Hands” (#5) complete the Top 5.
