Bon Jovi’s ‘Always’ Music Video Hits 1 Billion YouTube Views

Bon Jovi has notched another video in the Billion Views Club. The band’s clip for their 1994 hit, “Always,” hit one billion views on YouTube.

It’s their third music video to reach the accomplishment, following 2000’s “It’s My Life” and 1986’s “Livin’ On a Prayer.” The Marty Callner-directed clip showing a difficult breakup stars Jack Noseworthy, Carla Gugino, Jason Wiles and Keri Russell and was made available on YouTube in 2009.

“Always,” featured on Bon Jovi’s 1994 album, Cross Road, reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, marking one of the band’s 10 top 10 hits on the tally. “Always” was also bass player Alec John Such’s final single with the band before he left in late 1994.

Cross Road, meanwhile, debuted and peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and remained on the chart for an impressive total of 57 weeks. The album featured lasting hits like “Livin’ On a Prayer,” “Wanted Dead or Alive,” “You Give Love a Bad Name” and “I’ll Be There For You,” among others.
