It would be a lie if you say there wasn’t a time when this koi sense bani iss baat ki song/rhyme was not stuck in your mind. Didn’t it play at the back of your mind while you were trying to sleep or do anything at all, didn’t you accidentally sing it and instantly went like-
And these are the reasons which made this infuriatingly catchy children’s rhyme the most-watched YouTube video of all time beating Despacito. It illustrates the tale of the titular shark and its family as they search for prey.
The channel updates it on their twitter accounts- “Baby Shark swims to the top of YouTube, officially becoming the No. 1 most-viewed YouTube video in history, with 7.04 billion YouTube views! Thanks for all your love and support, everyone!”
The song has 7.04 billion views. The song recorded by South Korean company Pinkfong actually was released on June 17, 2016 and it took four years for Baby Shark to make it to the top of YouTube’s most-played chart.
It’s addictive “doo doo doo doo doo doo” (c’mon don’t you wanna sing in tune) dance moves became a craze in South Korea, where even popular bands like Red Velvet, Girls’ Generation and Blackpink started incorporating it into their concerts.
But have you wondered why?
The song is incredibly catchy, and the lyrics and dance moves are easy to memorize but nobody has yet claimed ownership of the lyrics. The only evidence of its longevity is the foggy memories of adults who themselves don’t remember where they learnt or came across this.
