Even adults are also going crazy about it!
Baby Shark, the aquatic-themed earworm that toddlers and preschoolers alike are fascinated with, has reached a new milestone.
The hit song, which was produced by Pinkfong, is YouTube’s most-watched video and the only one to exceed 10 billion views. It was uploaded on YouTube in June 2016.
Baby Shark surpassed “Despacito,” a Spanish-language song from Luis Fonsi featuring reggaeton king Daddy Yankee, which had set the previous record of 7.04 billion views in November 2020.
“It has been a truly meaningful journey to witness how Baby Shark has connected people around the world, and we can’t wait to introduce Baby Shark’s further adventures that will bring unparalleled experiences to even more fans everywhere.”– Min-seok Kim, CEO of The Pinkfong Co.
The song “Baby Shark” is thought to have started as a campfire song in the early twentieth century.
During the chant, campers used their arms to imitate Baby Shark, Mommy Shark, Daddy Shark, Grandma Shark, and Grandpa Shark’s varied jaw shapes and sizes.
Hope Segoine, who was 10 years old at the time, sang Baby Shark, which reached No. 32 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 38 on the Global 200.
