The end is not in sight.

“Baby Shark,” the song you love to hate and hate to love, has made it to the Billboard Top 100, Billboard reports. The viral children’s song currently ranks in the No. 32 spot.

Staking its claim, it sits right between “She Got the Best of Me,” by Luke Combs, and “Close to Me,” by Ellie Goulding and Diplo featuring Swae Lee.

For those unfamiliar with the sensation (lucky you!), the viral song and YouTube video has been the bane of parent’s existence for the last few months. With more than 2.1 billion views, it’s one of the most viewed YouTube videos ever.

Which is why it’s no surprise “Baby Shark” puns were one of the biggest 2018 baby trends on Instagram. One family even took the obsession up a notch, creating a synchronized light show to the inescapable tune.

Love it or hate it, “Baby Shark” isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
