According to Nielsen Music, a company that measures the success of songs, the song was heard 20.8 million times last week.

With respect to the song itself, it is not a deep study of sharks. Tells the story of a family of sharks that go hunting and then return home, where they are out of danger. However, "Baby Shark" has an easy-to-learn lyrics and dance, plus two adorable children who interpret it.

Interestingly, the song is not new. It was published in 2016 by Pinkfong, and has been growing in popularity ever since. According to Pinkfong, the song owes its success to several factors, such as the Korean pop groups Girls' Generation and BLACKPINK, who started dancing and singing the song. YouTube also included it in Rewind, its video of the most viral content of the year.
