The Latest Music Video to Reach 1 BILLION Views is…


These days, it seems like new songs break records every day! But the latest tune to break through the 1 billion views threshold isn’t exactly new… forgive me for what I’m about to post here.

No, I’m not just Rick-Rolling you for fun. The legendary 80s vid (complete with shuffling feet, pixelated quality, and of course, plenty of memes) just surpassed 1 billion views on YouTube, making it arguably one of the most popular songs in the world!

Rick Astley, the mastermind behind this anthem for online jokesters, was impressed too. The video now features a pinned comment, signed by Rick, that calls the achievement, “Amazing, crazy, wonderful!”

Indeed. Here’s to 1 billion more Rick-Rolls!
