Pinkfong‘s “Baby Shark,” a cute and ultra-catchy children’s song that swept the nation (and probably your kid’s hearts), has now become the most viewed video in YouTube history.

More than four years after it was first uploaded to the platform, the song exploded to become a global phenomenon thanks to a recording by 10-year-old Korean-American singer Hope Segoine. Pinkfong, an educational company, saw the video for “Baby Shark” first go viral in Asia before later the U.S. and Europe. It peaked at No. 32 on the Billboard Hot 100.

With over 7.04 billion views, the track moves past 2017 smash hit “Despacito” from Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. The top 10 most viewed videos in YouTube history are as follows.
