The video for the Billboard Hot 100 last year, directed by Dave Meyers, surpassed the 1 billion views on YouTube on Wednesday morning.
“Bad Guy” is included on the singer’s debut album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”, And was awarded two Grammy Awards at this year’s gala. Eilish received five trophies from the Recording Academy in January.
The video for her song “Lovely”, a collaboration with Khalid, is also approaching the threshold of 1 billion views.
This is not the first video of Dave Meyers to reach the most watched. He also directed “Señorita”, for the song sung by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, which managed to perform earlier this year.
Meyers also made videos for Taylor Swift (“ME!), Ariana Grande (” God Is a Woman “) and Kendrick Lamar (” HUMBLE “), which garnered hundreds of thousands of views.
“Despacito”, launched in 2017 by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, leads among the most watched music videos on YouTube, with over 7 billion views.
