"Baby Shark" swims onto Billboard Hot 100 - WCTV

The Billboard Hot 100 chart is usually the home of music's biggest stars -- and songs. But a baby shark swam right onto it this week.

  The Billboard Hot 100 chart is usually the home of music's biggest stars -- and songs.

  The children's song "Baby Shark" debuted at No. 32 on the chart for the week ending on January 12.

  "Baby Shark" has been around for decades, but was given a second life with the 2016 version created by Pinkfong, an educational brand based in South Korea, according to Billboard.

  Pinkfong's YouTube video of the song has over two billion views and closed the last streaming tracking week ending on January 3 with 20.8 million streams, according to Nielsen Music.

  The song's streaming growth coupled with the drop-off of 23 holiday tunes from the Hot 100 gave "Baby Shark" the opening it needed to chomp the 32 spot, reports Billboard.
