Beyonce’s ‘Halo’ Video Hits 1 Billion Views

Published: Sunday 29th Mar 2020 by Sam

That Beyonce reign just won’t let up.

Music’s reigning queen continues to rack up accolades almost three decades into her illustrious career.

Her latest win? ‘Halo.’

Full story below…

Released in 2008 on the blockbuster ‘I Am… Sasha Fierce’ album, the Ryan Tedder production received the official single treatment in January 2009.

Now, 11 years on, the video for the anthem has crossed a major milestone – 1 BILLION views on YouTube. 

It’s a colossal feat and speaks to the enduring popularity of the smash.

The visual’s entry into the Billion Club comes as anticipation grows for Queen Bey’s new solo album, her first since 2016’s ‘Lemonade.’

    Is this a music blog or a Beyonce fan site? I love Bey but TGJ does the most to find anything Bey related to write about ?

    • Beylover March 29, 2020

      Stay mad!

  2. Nicky March 29, 2020

    Relevant since 1997.

    Lots of lead singers from girl groups want to be a Beyonce but can never come close

    ???

    • Clarks0o0ñ March 29, 2020

      Lady Gaga will now join Elton John, Camila Cabello, Mariah Carey and more for the benefit event.

      ?????

      They hate to see it.
      Vocalist recognize vocalist
      Legends recognize Camila

      Where is normani?
      She’s a dancer not a vocalist.

  3. Clarks0o0ñ March 29, 2020

    A video on YouTube with 1 billion views is hard to get not everyone has that to their credit.

    Camila cabello- havana (audio) – 1.5 billion views on YouTube.
    ???

    Only 5th harmony member to have a video on YouTube with 1 billion views.

    Seniorita is coming also. 970 million views.

    They hate to see it.
    Now cry about it ??

  4. Clarks0o0ñ March 29, 2020

    “Bey’s new solo album, her first since 2016’s ‘Lemonade.’”

    So you guys are gonna deny the gift, everything is love, homecoming cause they all flopped.

    ??????
    Fraudulent beehive.

    If everything is love hit number 1, yall will claim it as beyonce’s 7th number one album.

    If the gift hit number one, yall will claim it as beyonce’s 8th number one album.

    Frauds.lol

    • Justme March 29, 2020

      They’re counting studio albums. Your so thirsty but wrong. Sit down and open your ears..

      Both albums were Grammy nominated and one won a Grammy.

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 29, 2020

        Rat,
        If the gift hit number one and sold 10 million copies, u will claim it as beyonce’s “studio album ” but since it flopped, ur denying it.

        Typical lice hive.

        Lady gaga a star is born is counted as gaga’s studio album.
        Unlike the gift, a star is born sound track hit number one and sold millions, win grammys and an oscar.

      • Fanciest BISH March 29, 2020

        Girl as if you will claim the upcoming Cinderella soundtrack.. please, you do not even claim Romance..

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 29, 2020

        “you do not even claim Romance..”
        ????

    • CDW March 29, 2020

      New music. Solo music.

      Everything is Love is “The Carter’s”.
      The Gift was for a movie and had a bunch of artists on it, some songs didn’t even have her on it.
      Homecoming was a LIVE album. Not a new music album.

      Pay attention to detail dear

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 29, 2020

        Keep telling your self that cause they all flopped

        ?

  5. I love big black c** March 29, 2020

    I believe Kelly clarkson recorded her Halo version first. Then Beyonce heard it and stole her sound. Just like how she did to Amerie as well. Fight me!!!

    • Clarks0o0ñ March 29, 2020

      Ryan tedder wrote halo and already gone for beyonce and kelly Clarkson respectfully.

      He used the same arrangements that’s why the songs sound similar.

      • I love big black c** March 29, 2020

        Btw dua lipoma is the new thief. Her new song “Levitating” rip off “The Ketchup Song!!!! How pathetic!

  6. Beyonce Knows March 29, 2020

    They hate to see it

    • Clarks0o0ñ March 29, 2020

      Nobody hates to see

      Everybody loves halo.

      It’s one of Beyonce’s best songs and the video is beautiful especially that scene were she’s in the water.

      She has more chemistry with the actor in the video than with Jay z.

  7. Beylover March 29, 2020

    Good for Bey!
    That song has aged well! Funny when her album first came out I didn’t care for that song but, HALO has become a staple song for her and it’s definitely grown on me over the last decade!

  8. Clarks0o0ñ March 29, 2020

    Beyonce’s first 3 number 1’s had features with men

    Crazy in love feat Jay z
    Baby boy feat Sean Paul
    Check on it feat slim thug.

    Camila cabello is following in.her footsteps.
    Havana feat young thug
    Seniorita with shawn Mendes

    A number one song is hard to get not everyone has that to their credit.

    Now cry about it ?

  9. Pat March 29, 2020

    Cute song. I always wondered why she doesn’t have more hit ballads tho( not hive favs) Like whit, Mariah and even Janet

    • I love big black c** March 29, 2020

      If I were a boy and best Thing I ever had are too underrated.

      • Pat March 29, 2020

        Even as a casual fan I can say Best thing I ever had Was hit material

      • ??‍♀️Jazzy Da Bi Asian ??‍♀️Not ? TROLLmine ??‍♀️Nor ? TRASHmine March 29, 2020

        Best thing You ever had is mid-uptempo. You can do a whole j-set 16 count to it lol

    Nothing against Beyonce, but Rihanna, Meghan Trainor, Taylor Swift, Adele, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and Wiz Khalifa have videos in the 2 and 3 billion. Katy, Ed, and Taylor, Rhianna and Shakira have a couple. Jlo on the floor has over 1.5 billion.

    How about a post on the top viewed music videos, instead of posting like Beyoncé is the first.

    The scandal behind Halo is that it was written for Leona, but she was too busy. Jelly Clarkson also accused Tedder of using the same arrangement as her Song Already Gone.

    Beautiful song that Beyonce sang well. I think Leona would have done it justice also.

    • Clarks0o0ñ March 29, 2020

      Leona Lewis can sing SING but she lacks attitude and charisma to sell this song the way beyonce sold this song.

      If leona Lewis sang halo, it will be another leona Lewis ballad and it wouldn’t go anywhere.

      Beyonce brought alot to this song. She invoke energy and personality into the song.

      We should celebrate this video hitting 1 billion views cause it’s an old video. Almost 12 years old.

      • Jamon_84 March 29, 2020

        She sold Bleeding Love and it went to #1 And Better in Time reaches #11

      • Clarks0o0ñ March 29, 2020

        That was early in her career.
        After some time people got tired of leona Lewis singing ballads and that’s why she’s been flopping ever since

    • Beylover March 29, 2020

      So basically you’re mad!

      This post is about Beyoncé and Beyoncé only!
      Deal with it….. ?

      • Jamon_84 March 29, 2020

  12. Wwwd What would Whitney Do March 29, 2020

  13. Fentybeauty March 29, 2020

    I prefer Leona Lewis version

    I also noticed that “Already Gone” by Kelly Clarkson is better than Halo.

    • Beylover March 29, 2020

      Hmmmmmmm I guess that that’s why
      “Already gone” FLOPPED and 12 yrs later nobody talks let alone remembers that song!

      Halo>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Already Flooped
