Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” Reaches 1 Billion Views On YouTube

First video from the 1970s to achieve that feat

Bohemian Rhapsody just keeps breaking records. The latest is that it’s become the oldest music video to reach 1 billion views on YouTube. If that doesn’t scream “classic” I don’t know what does. It’s the first video in the ’70s or any time prior to the ’90s to reach over a billion views.

To celebrate the milestone, the two remaining original members, Brian May and Roger Taylor, are teaming up with Universal Music and YouTube/Google to create some new clips based on the single and video. One of those is a remastered version of the 44-year-old song in HD.

For the others, they’re asking fans to be a part of them. “We want to thank you all and celebrate with our amazing fans all around the world by creating three new music videos to our songs, all featuring you!
