List of most-viewed YouTube videos

This page was last edited on 11 December 2017, at 23:44.

YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. Since its establishment in 2005, the website has featured a "most viewed" section, which lists the most viewed videos on the site. Although the most viewed videos were initially viral videos, such as Evolution of Dance and Charlie Bit My Finger, the most viewed videos were increasingly related to music videos. In fact, since Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance", every video that has reached the top of the "most viewed YouTube videos" list has been a music video. Although the most viewed videos are no longer listed on the site, reaching the top of the list is still considered a tremendous feat.

By June 21, 2015, only two videos, "Gangnam Style" and "Baby", had exceeded one billion views. However, three and a half months later, on October 7, ten videos had done so.[1] As of December 2017, 87 videos on the list have exceeded one billion views, with 19 of them exceeding two billion views; three of which exceed three billion views and one of which exceeds four billion views. "Despacito" became the first video to reach three billion views on August 4, 2017, followed by "See You Again" on August 6, 2017, and then on November 25, 2017, "Gangnam Style" became the third video to hit three billion views.[2][3][4] "Despacito" also became the first video to reach four billion views on October 11, 2017.[5]

As of December 2017, the five fastest videos to reach the one billion view mark are "Hello" (87 days), "Despacito" (96 days), "Shape of You" (97 days), "Mi Gente" (102 days) and "Sorry" (136 days).[6]

The five fastest videos to reach two billion views are "Despacito" (154 days), "Shape of You" (187 days), "Chantaje" (379 days), "Sorry" (394 days) and "See You Again" (515 days).[7]

As of December 2017, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry each have four videos exceeding one billion views, while Taylor Swift, Calvin Harris, Shakira, Ariana Grande and Bruno Mars each have three, and Fifth Harmony, Psy, Adele, Ellie Goulding, The Weeknd, Ed Sheeran, Nicky Jam, Eminem, Maluma, J Balvin and Ricky Martin each have two. Swift and Perry are the only artists to have two videos exceeding two billion views.
