Now only 4 singers have clips with 3 billion views on YouTube. The newest to enter this list is Adele.
This Friday (August 19) the clip for "Hello", a hit in 2015, reached such an expressive mark. It is the first video of the British singer to reach so many views.
The other three singers who complete this list are Shakira, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. And no one else! Only the giants of pop with timeless hits.
Shakira's most viewed clip could not be any other: "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)", which became
the eternal theme song of the World Cup, has 3.2 billion views. Taylor Swift, on
the other hand, has two triple-billion clips: the hits "Shake It Off" and "Blank Space"
the first of the "1989" era. Katy Perry is not far behind with "Dark Horse" and "Roar", the latter with 3.6 billion.
Billionth single! Proving to have had one of the most anticipated comebacks
in recent times, Adele has surpassed the 1 billion streams mark on Spotify for the track "Easy On
Me," lead-single from the album "30," released late last year. This marks the fastest single of the British artist's career to hit the amount on the audio platform.
