Time to celebrate, Lovatics!

Demi Lovato bypassed the velvet rope of the Internet earlier this week when she became the newest member of — what we like to call — the “Billion Views Club.” Between chart sales, YouTube views, and social media followers, numbers are a big deal in the music industry — and surpassing one billion Vevo channel views has elevated Lovato into some elite company. As you can imagine, the “Really Don’t Care” singer was elated about her achievement.

According to People’s Choice social rankings, Lovato’s tweet quickly picked up traction amongst fans, who were obviously excited to see their favorite artist hit such a major milestone.

Of course, Lovato isn’t the only artist to cross a billion views on Vevo. Singers including Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and more, have accomplished the feat. You may, however, be surprised to find out which singers haven’t yet been invited to this notable club.

Check out five surprising artists who are on the cusp of joining Demi Lovato in the Million Views Club:

1. Mariah Carey

Currently at: 966.5 Million views

Time to buy some shampoo because Carey’s exclusion from the Billion Views Club is a certified head-scratcher.

2. Justin Timberlake

Currently at: 893.9 Million views

While the new King of Pop has yet to technically surpass one billion views, if you factor in his Saturday Night Live appearances and Jimmy Fallon collaborations, we estimate Timberlake’s actual total is somewhere between one billion and infinity.

3. Coldplay

Currently at: 877.7 Million views

Fresh off a promotional tour for their latest album Ghost Stories, it’s only a matter of time before Coldplay exceeds a billion views.

4. Usher

Currently at: 875.4 Million views

Could Usher be the next artist to surpass a billion views? It was just announced that Usher will perform at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, providing the popular performer with a social media boost.

5. Calvin Harris

Currently at: 802.6 Million views

New Billion Views Club amendment: If you write the number one song of 2012 AND are a world-renown DJ, you receive an automatic membership.

Who do you think will be the next member of the Billion Views Club?
