EXO‘s “Monster” has hit 400 million views on YouTube, becoming the second EXO video to achieve that milestone.
This is notable because the only other artist from SM Entertainment to reach more than 400 million views on a music video is…EXO!
As of December 2021, EXO has the record for the most viewed video of any SM artist with their iconic hit “Love Shot,” which currently stands at 475 million views. With “Monster” hitting 400 million views, EXO has now taken the top two spots for the most viewed of SM videos.
In third place is Red Velvet with “Bad Boy,” which currently has 342 million views. EXO comes in once again to take fourth place with “Ko Ko Bop,” which was written by EXO’s own Baekhyun, and holds 324 million views. The last spot in SM’s top 5 most viewed music videos belongs to Red Velvet’s “Psycho” with 313 million views.
EXO has long been known as one of the most iconic groups in K-Pop history. The fact that they have 3 of the 5 most viewed videos by any SM Entertainment artist (and 5 out of the top 10) is proof of their legendary status. Congratulations to EXO on setting a new record for SM with “Monster”!
