Popular children’s song Baby Shark has become the most watched YouTube of all times after gaining 7.042 billion views, dethroning Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” which is currently at 7.038 billion views. The catchy children’s rhyme which was recorded by South Korean company Pinkfong went viral becoming a global sensation.

The Baby Shark dance video has taken four years to rise to the top after it was uploaded on the streaming platform on June 18, 2020. The Baby Shark dance features two kids performing the routine, which inspired the #BabySharkChallenge across various social media platforms.
