It's the song of the summer, the song of the year. It's been part of a really cute viral video and been streamed an astonishing number of times. The song is "Despacito," it features the astonishingly beautiful 2006 Miss Universe Zuleyka Rivera and a contagiously danceable beat, and it's also become the most-viewed YouTube video in history.

Billboard reports the Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber mega-hit, with an 3,022,873,261 views (as of 4:20 PM Eastern on Saturday) has surpassed Wiz Khalifa's and Charlie Puth's measly 2.9 billion views for "See You Again" and put PSY's long-time record-holder "Gangnam Style" in third place.  

"Despacito" has staying power apart from the video, completely owning Billboard's Hot 100 for months, but let's be real: part of the appeal in the video has to be the seriously stunning Ms. Rivera. 

We decided it was time we figured out who she was and introduced her to you. Since her time as Miss Universe, Rivera has become a TV host, a swimwear model and sponsor of her own line of swimsuits, and now, of course, part of music history. 

Check out some choice pics from her Instagram below. And we won't blame you if watch and re-watch the video just to see her moves again. Just tell your wife or girlfriend you like the song.
