Music videos from Cyndi Lauper, Harry Styles, Justin Timberlake and more joined YouTube’s exclusive Billion Views Club in 2022.
Cyndi enjoyed her first-ever Billions Club video after her 1983 hit “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” which was first uploaded to YouTube in October 2009, was watched over 1.13 billion times this year.
Cyndi wasn’t the only throwback to amass 1 million views: The Police‘s “Every Breath You Take” and Europe‘s “The Final Countdown” — respectively released in 1983 and 1986 — are also new members of the club. Aqua‘s 1997 song “Barbie Girl” also earned its membership this year.
Lady Gaga scored her third entry in the club after her 2008 hit “Poker Face” was viewed 1 billion times this year.
Rihanna‘s “Stay,” her 2013 collab with Mikky Ekko, became her second club entry after amassing more than 1 billion views this year.
In all, more than 50 music videos earned over 1 billion views this year. YouTube’s Billion Views Club has been going strong since 2012, when Psy‘s “Gangnam Style” became the first song to amass 1 billion views on the platform.
