A music video of the song Kau Jai Tur Lak Bur Toh (My heart for your phone number) by Thai female country singer Ying Lee Sijumpol has exceeded 100 million views on YouTube after 14 months, the first country song here to reach this level of viewing.

The song was first uploaded on YouTube by the recording company, Grammy Gold, on Jan 23, 2013 and passed 100 million views on April 7, 2014.
