Wednesday, June 9th 2010 -- LeetStreet Boys' hit single “Yuri The Only One” music video passed 1 million total views on YouTube.

After world premiering for a live audience at Anime Boston in 2008, “Yuri The Only One” gained notoriety on numerous anime and video game websites including Joystiq, 4chan, Japanator and VGcats.

Additionally, the music video has been screened at numerous anime conventions worldwide, including the finals of Otakon's anime music video competition.
