As Queen’s video for Bohemian Rhapsody passes 1 billion views on YouTube, Queen release remastered version and announce You Are The Champions campaign
It’s now the first pre-1990’s video to reach 1bn views on the platform – and Queen have celebrated the milestone by releasing a remastered, hi-def version of the promo and announced a campaign titled You Are The Champions.
Queen have teamed up with YouTube Music, Universal Music Group and Hollywood Records for the initiative, which will give fans the chance to have a starring role in three new user generated videos for a trio of the band’s best-loved songs.
Queen are looking for musicians, singers, and instrumentalists for their take on Bohemian Rhapsody, while dancers are invited to submit their own routines and interpretations for Don’t Stop Me Now. Visual artists will also have the chance to design something eye-catching around a word or phrase from A Kind Of Magic’s lyrics.
Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor say: “We are honoured that Bohemian Rhapsody has just hit 1bn views on YouTube. 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!
“Whether you are a musician, singer, dancer, visual artist or you just want to have some fun. Visit the You Are The Champions website to find out more and we’ll see you on the road somewhere.”
The completed videos will be uploaded later this year to the official Queen YouTube channel.
