Pedro Capo & Farruko’s “Calma,” last week’s leader, settles for #2 with 48.3 million.

Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You (featuring Cardi B)” holds at #3 with 42.6 million views, while a view count of 42.1 million lifts Daddy Yankee & Snow’s “Con Calma” to #4.

Down one place, Anuel AA & Karol G’s “Secreto” grabs #5 with 41 million views.

— Not simply the leader on the Music Videos chart, “break up” also claims #1 on the Global Songs chart. It amassed 72.5 million global YouTube streams across official uploads and select fan-generated content.
