It will be a huge milestone for the music industry as no singer has accumulated that many views ever.
If the views continue to come in at the rate they currently are, they are projecting that Lady Gaga will hit the 1 billion views mark around October 20th. Currently the pop superstar pulls in about 1.8 million hits daily.
Justin Bieber on the other hand will hit the 1 billion views mark around November 1st if he keeps up his pace. Bieber brings in about 3.7 million views on his music videos a day.
