SEOUL, Jan. 13 (Yonhap) -- "Baby Shark Dance," a song-and-dance video for the megahit children's song of the same name, became the first video on YouTube to surpass 10 billion views.

Entertainment company PINKFONG’s “Baby Shark Dance” video set a record of 10 billion views on Jan. 13 at 4:03 p.m. (KST).

The South Korean video, released in June 2016, racked up more than 7 billion views on Nov. 2020, dethroning Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's megahit "Despacito" that has ruled the platform.

The video shows children dancing and singing to the song “Baby Shark.”

The clip gained popularity with its catchy tune and addictive lyrics, "Baby shark, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo."

The song became a worldwide phenomenon and even made it to global music charts, ranking No. 32 on the Billboard's Hot 100 and No. 6 on the Official Charts.
