YouTube 2017 Roundup: Top 10 Trending Clips, Most-Watched Music Videos & #YouTubeRewind Mashup

Latin music dominated YouTube in 2017. Six of the Top 10 most-watched music videos featured Latin artists. Luis Fonsi, not surprisingly, topped them all with his mega-smash “Despacito” featuring Justin Bieber and Daddy Yankee. Not only did the earworm top the 2017 list but it overtook PSY’s “Gangnam Style” as the most-watched video of all-time with 4.4 billion views and counting.

Not including music clips, the most viral video of the year was one from the Thai celebrity singing competition show, Mask Singer. It featured competitors wearing elaborate masks to conceal their identities. A couple Ed Sheeran-related vids cracked the Top 10 as did that adorable gay animated short film, In A Heartbeat. Lady Gaga’s epic Super Bowl LI halftime performance also made the cut.

Check out the Top 10 Most-Watched Music Videos below, along with Top Trending Videos of the year. In addition to releasing both lists, the video sharing site premiered their annual #Rewind clip featuring popular YouTube creators revisiting the top moments of the year. Among those featured include Dan + Phil, Liza Koshy, Casey Neistat, The Dolan Twins and Lilly Singh. Happy watching!!!
