Justin first artist to exceed 800m views on YouTube

Justin Bieber has reportedly become the first music artist to receive over 800 million views on YouTube. The 18-year-old singer’s video for ‘Baby’ passed the mark on Friday (November 16), according to WENN. Featuring rapper Ludacris, the hit debut single from Bieber premiered in February 2010, garnering huge attention for the then 16-year-old. The video was directed by Ray Kay and features Jasmine Villegas, with a cameo from Drake. Bieber first found fame by uploading videos of himself singing on to YouTube, which gained him a following and interest from industry heads. He is slowly inching towards 1 billion views, though South Korean star Psy’s Guinness World Record-breaking ‘Gangnam Style’ video is not far behind with 730 million views in just four months. Psy recently teased a possible collaboration with Bieber.
