Justin Bieber & Jaden Smith's 'Never Say Never' Video Hits 1 Billion YouTube Views

Justin Bieber lodges his eighth entry in YouTube's Billion Views Club as his "Never Say Never" video, featuring Jaden Smith, hits the milestone this week.

Revisiting the 2010 music video more than a decade later is a true time capsule, with the then-16-year-old Bieber towering over an even tinier 11-year-old Smith in the studio. The song was on the soundtrack for the 2010 remake of The Karate Kid, starring Smith, who also lends a rap verse to JB's track and is seen throughout the video alongside co-star Jackie Chan in scenes from the film.

"Never Say Never" was a top 10 hit for Bieber on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 8 in March 2011. The song also lent its title to a 3-D concert film that documented the pop star's My World Tour stop at New York's Madison Square Garden, which premiered in February 2011.

Other Bieber videos that have notched 1 billion views include "Sorry" (3.4 billion), "What Do You Mean" (2.1B) and his breakout single "Baby" (2.4B). His latest contender for the Billion Views Club is "Peaches," from his just-released Justice album, which arrived Friday along with a music video.
