Baby Shark is the first YouTube video to exceed 10 billion views

The children’s song ‘Baby Shark’, by the musical group Pinkfong, has become the most viewed video on YouTube in the history of this platform, as it accumulates more than 10,000 million views.

The video titled ‘Baby Shark Dance’ is on track for 10,008,000,000 views on Pinkfong’s Baby Shark-Kids’ Songs & Stories channel, at the time of writing. This currently has 54.8 million subscribers.

This channel of South Korean origin contains other songs that have millions of views. Among them, ‘Monkey Banana-Baby Monkey’ (around 953 million), ‘Baby Shark Dance with Song Puppets’ (835 million) or the version of ‘Baby Shark with Luis Fonsi’ (703 million).

Precisely the original version of ‘Baby Shark’ has unseated the Puerto Rican artist and his song ‘Despacito’. This theme, in which he collaborates with Daddy Yankee, was the one that until now held first place in the most viewed videos.

Thus, after ‘Baby Shark’ are currently ‘Despacito’ (with almost 7,702 million views), another children’s song called ‘Johny Johny Yes Papa’ (6,101 million) and Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ (almost 5,590 million) .

‘Baby Shark’ has become a viral phenomenon thanks to Korean-American singer Hope Segoine’s catchy tune. The video was uploaded to YouTube in June 2016 and, since then, its impact has been growing.

So much so that during the 2020 quarantine a new version of the song was released that includes hygiene recommendations, such as washing your hands, sneezing into a disposable handkerchief or coughing into your elbow. At the moment, this version has almost 28 million views.
