People's love for 'Despacito' was too strong that one country banned it
People all over the world had this song on repeat since the beginning of summer ... up until Malaysian fans were faced with a ban.
In July, Malaysia officially banned the record breaking song from state radio and TV channels. The decision came days after the song set a global streaming record, garnering more than 4.6 billion plays across all streaming platforms since its release in January.
Officials at the state-owned broadcaster RTM received complaints from the public regarding the "sexually explicit" song lyrics.
"The song was filled with numerous sexual references and innuendos and thus wholly inappropriate to be aired by our national media outlets for our general public, especially children," Salleh Said Keruak, communications minister, told CNNMoney.
