As of August 2016, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift are the only users with three videos in the top 40, with Bieber having all three of his videos in the top 25, making him the only person to have three videos which exceed a billion views each. Katy Perry, Adele, Ellie Goulding and Psy all have two of their videos in the top 40. Perry and Swift both have two videos which exceed 1.5 billion views each.
