The iconic visual was released in 1975 and now 44 years later, Queen is still making history!

 Queen’s mega hit has reached over 1 billion views on YouTube some four decades after it’s original release.

Bandmates Brian May and Roger Taylor released a statement saying, “we are honored that ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ has just hit one billion views on YouTube.”

In celebration of the milestone, Queen has launched a new contest with Universal Music Group & YouTube Music called “You Are the Champions” project – offering fans the chance to participate in three new user-generated videos.

Vocalists and instrumentalists have the opportunity to submit their cover of “Bohemian Rhapsody” for the event while dancers are required to perform a routine to another Queen hit, “Don’t Stop Me Now.”


The prize? Winners will be featured on Queen’s YouTube channel later this year.

May and Taylor continued, “we want to thank you all and celebrate with our amazing fans all around the world by creating three new music videos to our songs, all featuring you!”
