There are only three songs that stand in the way of "Despacito" breaking Carey's record: the No. 2 song, DJ Khaled feat. Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, "Wild Thoughts"; Cardi B, "Bodak Yellow," which has perpetually been at No. 3; and Taylor Swift's new single, "Look What You Made Me Do," which has not been added to the chart yet.
