Calum Scott has just earned a major milestone in his career. The singer’s music video for his 2017 single “You Are the Reason” recently hit one billion views on YouTube. The video is the star’s first video to join the Billion Views Club.
Scott reacted to the news via Instagram. “1,000,000,000 views on ‘You Are The Reason’ on @youtube.. I’m speechless. Thank you, a billion times,” he wrote recently, captioning a video of him explaining the visual’s concept back in 2018 while on set.
The video sees Scott walking through the streets of Kyiv, Ukraine. As he makes his way through the town, a series of intimate moments play, from a little girl sharing a loaded glance with her father before driving away, and a couple sharing a dance in the streets, to a family watching their matriarch pass, and a different couple sharing headphones in the backseat of a cab after a date.
“You Are the Reason” was released as the third single from his debut studio album, Only Human. The track, which later received a new version that featured Leona Lewis, peaked at Nos. 7 and 11 on the Digital Song Sales and Adult Contemporary charts, respectively. Only Human peaked at No. 66 on the Billboard 200, and at No. 31 on the Top Current Album Sales chart.
