Remember when PSY’s catchy “Gangnam Style” broke the internet all those years ago and became the first YouTube video to hit 1 billion views? Right now, the video is sitting at over 4 billion views, which is honestly very impressive, but we might now have a new winner in the form of the also-incredibly catchy “Baby Shark”.
Based on the YouTube counter, it looks like the popular kid’s song has managed to become the first YouTube video to hit the 10 billion view mark. The video actually broke the record back in November 2020 where it became YouTube’s most-viewed video at over 7 billion views, and it looks like it has grown by an additional 3 billion views since.
The song was originally released in 2016 where it was created by South Korean educational company, Pinkfong, and performed by Korean-American singer Hope Segoine. While the video and song itself was pretty popular in Asia, it was only in 2019 where American media started picking up on it where it became a TV show on Nickelodeon and was also made into a cereal.
The song has also been rather popular on social media platforms such as TikTok where teens and adults filmed themselves dancing to the kid’s song.
