Going into Sunday’s 60th Grammy Awards ceremony, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito (featuring Justin Bieber)” was the betting favorite for Song Of The Year.

It did not win.

The trophy instead went to Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like.”

The award specifically goes to songwriters Christopher Brody Brown, James Fauntleroy, Philip Lawrence, Bruno Mars, Ray Charles McCullough II, Jeremy Reeves, Ray Romulus & Jonathan Yip.

In addition to “Despacito,” Mars’ tune beat out “Issues” by Julia Michaels, “1-800-273-8255” by Logic featuring Alessia Cara & Khalid, and “4:44” by Jay-Z.

Mars, who has already won multiple trophies (and performed) at Sunday’s ceremony, is still in the mix for Album Of The Year (24K Magic) and Record of the Year (24K Magic).
