LONDON (CelebrityAccess) – Queen’s music video for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” originally released in 1975, has officially surpassed one billion views on YouTube. It is the first pre-1990s music video to reach that milestone on the streaming platform, according to YouTube.

The band is celebrating the milestone by releasing a remastered version of the video out today (July 22), in addition to launching a new project entitled “You Are the Champions,” which asks fans to help create three user-generated videos. As part of the project, Queen is asking singers and musicians to reinterpret “Bohemian Rhapsody,” dancers to submit interpretations of “Don’t Stop Me Now,” and visual artists to design a word or phrase from “A Kind of Magic.”

“We are honored that ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ has just hit one billion views on YouTube,” bandmates Brian May and Roger Taylor said in a statement, adding: “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. Go to www.youarethechampions.com to find out more and we’ll see you on the road somewhere.”

The band will feature the finished videos on their official YouTube channel later this year.
