TL;DR The 4th song to hit over 5 Billion views on YouTube is ‘See You Again’ by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth.
YouTube has always been a place that allows people to not only listen but watch their favorite music videos for free. YouTube is an easy loophole that lets you listen to a song without having to buy it on Itunes. Now we live in an age of multiple music streaming platforms, with people listening to their favorite songs on services like Spotify or Apple Music, but listening and watching music videos on YouTube hasn’t gone out of style. People love the added benefit of seeing music videos on Youtube, and thus the exclusive 5 Billion views+ clubs on YouTube just got a new member.
“See You Again” by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth has recently achieved this amazing milestone of 5 billion views+. This is pretty huge on YouTube, as many other successful music videos haven’t come close to getting that rank. Can you guess the other three videos on YouTube that have more than 5 billion views? Well, we will just tell you, it’s none other than “Despactio,” Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” and last but not least, “Baby Shark.” “Seen You Again” and “Shape of You” are close in the billion view range, but “Despacito” has 7.2 Billion views currently, and Baby Shark has more than 8 billion views. These numbers are definitely an impressive amount of views. The up-and-coming artist still has a way of organically growing their audience, and we think that’s awesome!
