Justin Bieber has yet another video in the YouTube one billion club. The singer’s collab with DJ Snake on the French DJ-producer’s 2016 single from his debut studio album, Encore, has crossed over the landmark mark, the video streaming service announced Wednesday (Sept. 15).
The clip became the latest billion-view visual for both artists, thanks to the thrilling James Lees-directed young lovers Bonnie & Clyde-style heist drama that mixes sexy rolling-on-piles-of-money shots with punch-ups and car chases leading up to a surprise twist ending. The lyric video for the track has also rolled up more than 970 million views to date.
Bieber already has a handful of other videos over the billion mark, including his breakthrough 2010 hit “Baby,” which became the second video to pass that musical milestone in June 2015 on the heels of Psy’s “Gangnam Style” breaking the seven-figure seal. Other Bieber videos with the billion bump include “What Do You Mean?,” “Sorry” and “Love Yourself.” DJ Snake’s collab with Ozuna, Selena Gomez and Cardi B, “Taki Taki,” has more than 2.1 billion views, and his 2015 hit “Lean On” with Major Lazer has over three billion.
“Let Me Love You” peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in October 2016, and spent 33 weeks on the singles chart.
And while Bieber is still one of the biggest billion ballers on YouTube, last week, K-pop superstars BLACKPINK squeaked by him to become the most-subscribed artist on the video streaming platform with a whopping 66.6 million subscribers to JB’s 65.2 million.
