YouTube’s One Billion Views Club

onebillion

I was watching a YouTube video the other day (for research purposes) and I noticed in the listing of videos on the right side of the screen that there was a video that had over one billion views.

So I decided to check to see if there were any other videos with that many views, and as it turns out, there are 10 such videos, and they are all music videos.

At the top of the list, as many of you may know, is Gangnam Style by Psy. In fact, the Gangnam Style video has almost twice as many views as the second most viewed music video! Another interesting fact – Taylor Swift and Katy Perry each have two videos with over one billion views.

If you would like to see the list of the members of the billion views club, along with the rest of the top 30 videos of all time, here is the link.

In case you were curious, the song I was watching while doing my research was Fireworks by Katy Perry. Since this video is not a member of the billion views club, I thought I would share the video that I saw on the right side of the screen while playing Fireworks that does have over a billion views, Roar by Katy Perry. It’s a catchy tune, and an entertaining video.

Now it’s back to doing more research…
