 Beyoncé's Halo has reached 1 billion views

 

It is the 10th music video released before 2010 on YouTube to reach this milestone:

Spoiler

Crazy Frog - Axel F 2,055,489,380

The Gummy Bear Song - Long English Version 1,949,935,187

Numb - Linkin Park 1,349,833,689

Guns N' Roses - November Rain 1,325,946,364

Lady Gaga - Bad Romance 1,185,549,913

Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody 1,124,026,083

Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine 1,064,942,965

Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit 1,044,280,2643

Taylor Swift - You Belong With Me 1,038,373,677

Beyoncé - Halo

 

(Not including the 2 crossed out videos that nobody cares about) Halo becomes:

- The 3rd female released before 2010 to reach 1b views.

- The 3rd solo song to reach 1b views.

- The 4th video release in the 2000's decade to reach 1b views.

 

Halo is Beyoncé's first credited music video to reach 1b (HFTW has surpassed 1b as well).

SL would’ve done it first had her team not deleted it. 
But Halo is a nice little boring girl. :clap3:

Deserved! :clap3: Annoying that "Single Ladies" actually would've done this first, but "Halo" has become such a staple hit for her that I'm glad it's reached this milestone.

I just want them to add the unlisted version's views to the other one, and add that 57M-streamed 7/11 video's views to the parent video. (After which the unlisted Formation vid and the smaller 7/11 video can be deleted)

 

Is that too much to ask?

This should be on her official channel but I’m asking too much. Seriously, her team...

It was uploaded before Vevo and accrued hundreds of millions of views (sources vary of the exact amount), it was then deleted and re-uploaded onto her (then new) Vevo account. Losing all the views it already had during it's peak. :ace:

because aside from queen/BH all of those rock songs are by bands with only a couple classics, while michael has at least like 10.

 

daily averages:

michael jackson: 3.5m

guns n' roses: 1.8m

nirvana: 1.3m

link park:3.7m

 

please stay on topic

now speaking of mj, her tribute performance actually happens to be my favorite rendition of her live performances of halo still to this day:
