Hitting one billion views on Youtube is now easy feat. Only a handful electronic artists have hit this mile stone. Some which are genuinely surprising. Alan Walker’s breakout single ‘Faded’ was one the first to hit the mark after massive support from the gaming community. Others like Diplo’s ‘Lean On’, Calvin Harris’ ‘This Is What You Came For’ and Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’ are less surprising, but still massively impressive.
Yesterday Skrillex finally achieved his first one billion view single for his collaboration with Diplo and Justin Bieber, ‘Where Are Ü Now’. The track is a fond memory for many fans who still desperately hope that the surprise at Ultra 20 will be the reunion Diplo and Skrillex. While we cannot truly comment on the likelihood these rumors, Ultra has said to expect the unexpected.
Anyways – congratulations to Skrillex for his first 1 Billion, and congrats to Diplo and Bieber who are already seasoned members the exclusive club. Take a listen to ‘Where Are Ü Now’ below for old times sake.
