[ 21 December 2012 update:
Gangnam Style - PSY has over 1 Billion views on Youtube.
Gangnam Style is a Korean pop single by South Korean musician PSY. This song was the lead single of the album PSY 6 (Six Rules), Part 1. It was released on July 2012 and debuted at number one on South Korea's music chart. After just 5 short months, it made history on Youtube being the first song to ever hit One Billion views. Also it is now the first music video with over 1 billion views on Youtube.com. ]
Youtube is the world's largest internet video-sharing site from Google. YouTube averages 4 billion views per day. At the moment, as of this writing (April 2012), there is no single video on Youtube with one billion views. But wait, 2 years from now, it is projected that Youtube will have a video with 1 billion views. Guest what? or guess who's video is this coming from? Clue: it is a music video song from the 'King of Youtube' himself. 'Baby ft. Ludacris' from the Canadian singer Justin Bieber is currently ranked as Youtube's most viewed song, most viewed music video, and the overall most viewed video.
Baby is the video with the most views in the history of YouTube. The music video of "Baby" is also currently the most discussed YouTube video. This song is from Bieber's first full-length studio album, My World 2.0 which was recorded beginning in 2009 and was released in March 2010. Immediately, after release, it debuted straight at number one in several countries all over the world. My World 2.0 was certified platinum in the United States. A Gold Album means it has a total of 500,000 music recording sales while a Platinum Album have 1,000,000 music album sales. The best song from this album is the worldwide top-ten single, "Baby", which is also Justin Bieber's biggest hit song to date. His debut album, My World, gave him the record-breaking title for the first artist to have 7 songs from a debut album to be listed on the USA Billboard Hot 100 music charts. "Baby" (featuring Ludacris) was written by Justin Bieber, Terius Nash, Christopher Stewart, Christina Milian, rapper Ludacris, and Christopher Bridges. Baby has a total playing length of 3:36 (three minutes and thirty six seconds). Tricky Stewart, and The-Dream were the song's producers. Justin Bieber has 3 songs/music videos that are listed in the Top 10 Most Viewed Songs on Youtube.
Baby has an average of over 300,000 daily views on Youtube. That would translate into 110 million views per year. It is projected to hit the 1 billion hits benchmark 2.5 years from now. I wrote this article on April 2012, so the music video on Youtube for the song Baby ft. Ludacris shall have (according to this approximate calculations), a total of One Billion Views on October 2014. Just wait and watch out for it! It is around 30 months from now, and Youtube will finally have a single video with 1 billion views.
