Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's hit Despacito has become part of an exclusive U.S. chart club after ruling the Billboard Hot 100 for 14 weeks.

It is now one of only nine tracks which have spent at least 14 weeks at number one, joining the likes of Whitney Houston, Los Del Rio, Mark Ronson, The Black Eyed Peas, Mariah Carey, Elton John, and Boyz II Men, who have all spent 14 weeks at the top of the charts, while Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men's 1995 hit One Sweet Day spent 16 weeks at the summit.

DJ Khaled's Wild Thoughts hangs on to the number two spot for a fifth week, while French Montana's Unforgettable, featuring Swae Lee, stays put at three.

Imagine Dragons' Believer rises to four, while Charlie Puth enters the top five at five with Attention.

Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran's Shape of You is a week away from tying the record for consecutive weeks in the top 10.

The former 12-week number one holds at nine in the new Hot 100 in its 31st week in the top 10.

The Chainsmokers' Closer and Leann Rimes' How Do I Live currently tie for the top 10 longevity record with 32 weeks.
