Rowdy Baby from Dhanush's Maari 2 was an instant chartbuster when it released as an audio and it was celebrated by the fans. However, the excitement and happiness doubled when the video song was first witnessed by everyone in the theatres. The video song of 'Rowdy Baby' was released in the first week of January, 2019 and there has been no lookback since then. The video song turned out to be a huge hit across the world, transcending language and demographic barriers. The video song was widely enjoyed by the fans for the energetic dance movements of Dhanush and Sai Pallavi who were absolutely in great form. The duo set the stage on fire with their dance moves and the fun vibe was spread throughout the song.

The song was choreographed by ace dance choreographer Prabhu Deva and Jani Master and they played a key role in making the song what it is today. Yuvan Shankar Raja is the anchor of the song who delivered an energetic dance number that was loved by one and all. Initially, when it was announced that Yuvan would compose music for Maari 2, a section of fans was quite disappointed because of the fact that Maari 1 was an Anirudh musical. However, Yuvan replied everyone beautifully through his work.

Wonder why we are talking about Rowdy Baby now? Well, we need to! The video song of 'Rowdy Baby' has now crossed a mammoth number of 1 Billion views on YouTube and it is indeed an impeccable achievement. By crossing these huge numbers, Rowdy Baby has become the first ever South Indian song to reach 1 billion views and the numbers are definitely going to rise in the coming years as well. 'Rowdy Baby' crossed 1 billion views today (November 16), the same day when 'Why this Kolaveri Di' single (from 3) released.

Dhanush took to his Twitter page to thank everyone for the wholehearted support in creating this massive record. Dhanush tweeted, "What a sweet coincidence this is Rowdy baby hits 1 billion views on same day of the 9th anniversary of Kolaveri di. We are honoured that this is the first South Indian song to reach 1 billion views. Our whole team thanks you from the heart".
