The super-catchy children’s song "Baby Shark" broke another record after becoming the first video to hit 10 billion views on the online streaming platform Youtube.
The song, which was first uploaded in June 2016, became the most-watched video of the platform in November 2020 after surpassing Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi’s popular 2017 song “Despacito” featuring Daddy Yankee.
Since then, "Baby Shark" has added more than 3 billion viewers, extending its lead by a great margin. "Despacito" added some 700 million viewers in the same period and defended its second spot.
The song is believed to have originated as a camp song with similar tones and lyrics. Its most popular version produced by South Korean company Pinkfong went viral in 2017, prompting an online dance and challenge craze.
The popularity of "Baby Shark" proved lucrative with TV shows, movies, products and merchandise.
Other versions of the song featuring different actors and singers have also enjoyed great popularity with additional billions of views.
