Justin Bieber might be a bit upset about being the butt of an Olympic-sized joke, but today he gets to have all the laughs. The Canadian singer’s music video for “Baby” is the first Vevo video to hit a billion views.

Vevo uploaded the video back in February 2010 and three years later it is now Vevo-certified 10 times over again. On Feb. 23, the music video was approaching the 1 billion mark, but Vevo’s tweet and hashtag promotion pushed it over the billion-view marker.

One of the first to congratulate the singer was none other than his manager, Scooter Braun. Braun took to his Twitter page to applaud both Bieber on the accomplishment using the trending hashtag #BabyHit1Billion.
Although Bieber hasn’t tweeted anything out himself in regards to this huge landmark, he has retweeted Vevo’s congratulatory tweet. This new milestone comes only a few days after Bieber tweeted about his life being “all about the music” on Feb. 21.
