On Sunday 28 January the radio's favourite singers will take to the stage and perform some of the biggest hits from the past year to millions across the US.

As the weekend approaches, fans are more eager than ever to see who takes home the coveted Record of the Year – but did you know some of this year’s nominees already possess Guinness World Records titles for their music careers?

Ahead of this year’s 60th Grammy ceremony, here are the record-breaking achievements you favourite artists currently hold.

Most streamed track worldwide

Latin hit single Despacito is on track to win the top award at this year’s Grammys, probably due to its overwhelming popularity since its initial release. 

According to our records, the single has been streamed more than 4.6 billion times worldwide as of 19 July 2017. 

Originally performed by Luis Fonsi (b. Luis Alfonso López-Cepero) with Daddy Yankee (b. Ramón Rodríguez; both Puerto Rico), the song's popularity was subsequently boosted by a remix featuring Justin Bieber (Canada), which took it into the record books just 188 days after its release on 12 January 2017.
