Adele's 'Hello' hits 2 billion views on YouTube
Adele’s “Hello” might not be on the charts any longer, but that doesn’t mean people have stopped listening to it. In fact, millions of fans still hit play on the track every week, with YouTube remaining one of the most popular ways to listen to one of the singer’s biggest single.
“Hello” has just become the latest video to pass the 2 billion play milestone on YouTube, making it the newest member of a club that only contains a few of the most successful songs of the past few years.
Psy’s viral smash “Gangnam Style” still leads the way when it comes to music videos with the most views, as it is approaching the 3 billion mark. Behind that track are Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth with their Furious 7 soundtrack cut of “See You Again,” followed by Justin Bieber’s “Sorry.” All of those singles have amassed over two and a half billion, and there are only about a dozen or so tracks inside the 2 billion club at this point.
