LOS ANGELES (AP) - Enough kids watched the "Baby Shark" video in the past week to push the song into the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

"Baby Shark" by South Korean educational group Pinkfong is a children's sing-along that has racked up 2.1 billion views worldwide. In the past week, the song was streamed in the U.S. 20.8 million times.

Because streaming counts toward chart data, that puts "Baby Shark" at number 32 on this week's chart. It also sold 3,000 digital downloads.
