It’s December, which represents year-end lists from all of the streaming services are coming in fast and hot–and the most recent is from YouTube. The corporation discovered its top 10 most-played music videos of 2017 Wednesday morning.
It resolved up being a historic year for streaming music, with digits surging past anything the pulpit had construed previously. As Variety points out, the record for most-viewed YouTube video was held by Psy’s “Gangnam Style” for nearly five years. The South Korean rapper was unseated twice in 2017, though: First in July by Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” feature Charlie Puth, and then again the following month by Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” featuring Daddy Yankee, which is chilling in the No. 1 recognize with over 4.4 billion views. Mulling “Despacito” was the first video to even break the 3-billion marker( precisely 204 eras after it was secreted ), the fact that it’s still clambering steadily is no small feat. In reality, the ballad was the top YouTube music video of its first year in more than 50 countries worldwide.
Another cool direction this year: Six of the top 10 videos were from Latin artists. Watch them below 😛 TAGEND
