When it comes to watching videos, everyone goes to YouTube. Thousands of videos are uploaded on YouTube every second and billions watch videos on YouTube but getting views is not at all easy. You might even be stuck on 1 view for weeks (that one view was probably yours). You need show content that stands out and it also depends on you luck. Here are the 10 most views videos on YouTube.
10) JUSTIN BIEBER- SORRY
3.30 BILLION VIEWS
Yes guys, Justin Bieber’s most watched song isn’t baby but his 2015 hit “sorry”. The song is pretty cool and catchy but the video is kind of a disaster. It has repetitive dance moods and a fashion sense from the 90’s. A lot of people want this deleted but maybe apparently they watch it.
9) LOO LOO KIDS- JOHNY JOHNY, YES PAPA
3.47 BILLION VIEWS
A video for kids, I was honestly surprised by this one, it has its origins in Kenya and was uploaded in 2009. Loo Loo Kids uploaded a new version in 2016 and thanks to twitter it went viral.
8) MIROSHKA TV- LEARNING COLORS- COLORFUL EGGS ON A FARM
3.47 BILLION VIEWS
Another kids video and probably the longest one ever made. It teaches kids colors through multicolored eggs with creepy smiles. The narration is in Russian but the back ground music is “Old McDonald had a farm” in English.
7) PSY-GANGNAM STYLE
3.67 BILLION VIEWS
Everyone saw this one coming, this song along with the top video on this list are a global phenomenon-everyone knows about them. The song is catchy, the dance moves have you dancing and the video is sort of hilarious. It was even called “a force for world peace” by the former United Nations Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon.
6) MARK RONSON FT. BRUNO MARS- UPTOWN FUNK
3.88 BILLION VIEWS
Inspired by the 1980’s funk music, “Uptown Funk” is catchy and gets stuck in your head. It was the number song in the United States for 14 weeks straight.
5) GET MOVIES- MASHA AND THE BEAR – A RECIPIE FOR DISASTER
4.30 BILLION VIEWS
This video was even more shocking to me than the kid’s song videos. The most viewed non-music video on YouTube is an episode of a kids animated show!! Originally in Russian but now dubbed in various languages, it tells the story Masha and her pet bear trying to get out of the troubles they create. This episode is about how her forest gets in trouble because she cooks up too much porridge.
4) WIZ KHALI Ft. CHARLIE PUTH- SEE YOU AGAIN
4.61 BILLION VIEWS
Written for the movie “Furious 7” and a tribute to Paul Walker who died in 2013 in the middle of filming. A very heartwarming song worthy of being on this list.
3) ED SHEERAN- SHAPE OF YOU
4.85 BILLION VIEWS
A video which became famous purely for how good the song was us. “Shape of you” will be remembered for ages to come and is a masterpiece which almost everyone has heard. After hearing it, you can’t stop singing it.
2) PINKFONG KIDS’ SONGS & STORIES- BABY SHARK DANCE
5.76 BILLION VIEWS
This song is purely famous for how hilarious it is to say “do doo doo” in the song, it was so viral that some political parties (not naming them) even used it to promote their candidates in South Korea. It started as just a campfire song by Eric Newton but quickly went viral after it was uploaded in 2015. It is the most viewed educational video of all time.
1) LUIS FONSI Ft. DADDY YANKEE- DESPACITO
6.83 BILLION VIEWS
This song has more views than people who actually use YouTube. It is played to this day because the song and video both are good. Most people don’t know what the lyrics actually say but who cares, it sounds catchy. There is quite a gap between the first and second most viewed video but its understandable, Despacito was a global sensation which everyone appreciated.
