Justin Bieber’s world-famous video of his chart-buster song “Baby” was released two years ago on February 19th, 2010, now completing two years. Over the last two years, the video has gone on to be the most viewed video ever on YouTube crossing more than a mind-boggling half a billion views.

The fans of the teen idol made sure he was reminded of the landmark and he acknowledged them by tweeting “WHAT?!! 2 years ago today we put out the BABY video. so much has happened since then. All because of u guys. thank you. I LOVE U #Beliebers.” Justin Bieber is very active on Social Networking site Twitter, where interacts with his fans and uses it to promote his albums. He has more than 17 million followers and they are famously referred to as Beliebers.

Baby, featuring Ludacris was his first shot at super stardom, the song featured as the lead single from his first full-length album ‘My World 2.0′ that released in January 2010. ‘My World 2.0′ was preceded by ‘My World’ that featured hits like ‘One Less Lonely Girl’, but ‘Baby’ was always the deal breaker. My World also went platinum in the U.S and featured seven singles in Billboard Hot 100 chart.

As of now, Bieber’s other video to feature in the Top 10 YouTube videos list is Never Say Never ft. Jaden Smith with 290 million views.

It is only fair to point out the love-hate relationship the public has with Justin Bieber. The same ‘Baby’ video is the second most disliked video on YouTube with more than 2 million dislikes and over 7 million comments. Rebecca Black, who created waves online after the release of her single ‘Friday’, holds the dubious distinction of the most disliked video. Five of Bieber’s videos appear on the list of The Ten Most Disliked Videos on YouTube. The hate for him has emanated out of his phenomenal success at such a young age. His professional breakthrough came when he was signed by Usher, the singer and producer at the tender age of 13. His first single, One Time reached top 30 in more than 10 countries. Justin Bieber will continue to have his share of lovers and haters as he turns 18 next month.
