The music video for Shakira’s Waka Waka (This Time For Africa) featuring African band Freshlyground, has crossed two billion views on YouTube.
The hit, which released On June 8, 2010 on the video-sharing platform has taken all of eight years to reach the milestone. The Colombian singer, who is touring the US, shared the following message on Instagram.
However, Waka Waka isn’t her first video to reach 2 billion views. Chantaje (featuring Maluma) hit the two-billion mark quicker, peaking in as soon as two years after its November 2016 release.
