This is one of the most iconic videos of a K-Pop artist. PSY’s Gangnam Style is pretty much the music video that launched Korean music to the world and the monster hit was the first-ever video on Youtube that collected over a billion views. More interestingly, the video itself reached the mark in only less than 6 months since the release. In the time of 2012, its achievement was unprecedented.

Despite being older than the top three of this list, the Bruno Mars song still keeps on attracting new viewers and keeps on being a chart-topping threat.

The video was introduced to the world in November 2014 and quickly rose as one of the most well-liked and well-known videos ever.

5. Recipe for Disaster - Masha and the Bear (4.28 billion)

This video is an episode of the Russian CGI-animated television series for kids, Masha and the Bear. Recipe for Disaster is one of the two entries which are not music videos and one of the four not completely in English.

This track is the top 10’s first video to have a film tie-in – Furious 7 – to support its promotion. See You Again managed to have over 4 million views and functions as a tribute to late actor Paul Walker.

The song of Ed Sheeran collected this impressive view count number in only two years after its debut in January 2017.

2. Baby Shark Dance - Pinkfong (5.60 billion)

Sometimes a song gets to be famous simply because it is ear-catching. We have seen many such examples in the past so it is beyond any doubt that the same happened to the super catchy kid song about a family of sharks.

Baby Shark Dance is not a complicated song at all as it has sharks, repetition and quite an amount of dread. In spite of that, it rose to be the newest name on the most-watched Youtube videos list and inspire many other variations on the platform.

The truth is Baby Shark is too famous now and almost every parent would replay it 15 times in a row to calm their toddler. Therefore, the meteoric rise of this kid song is expected to continue.

1. Despacito - Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee (6.80 billion)

For a platform run by an American owner and dominated by English-language content, it may be a surprise to see that the showstopper of the most viewed videos on Youtube is crooned almost entirely in Spanish. Also, it does not show any sign of getting eclipsed anytime soon.

Featuring Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi – two Puerto Rico artists, Despacito was uploaded on YouTube in early 2017 and scored over 1 billion views within only 97 days, making it the second-fastest run ever seen.

The song kept on growing and became the fastest Youtube video to earn 2 billion views and the very first to surpass 4 billion, then 5 billion, and now 6.8 billion views.

Will there be any video to take the first place of Despacitoto tobe the most viewed video on Youtube? We will have to wait and see.
