Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” continues to break records.
The iconic track has become the first music video released in the 1970s, or any time prior to the ’90s, to cross the billion-views mark on YouTube.
To celebrate the moment, members Brian May and Roger Taylor have joined forces with Universal Music and YouTube/Google to create a remastered version of the original clip.
May and Taylor, who are also giving fans the chance to get involved with Queen’s next YouTube releases, said, according to Variety: “We are honoured that ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ has just hit one billion views on YouTube.
“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!”
