Top 20 most watched videos on YouTube


YouTube top 20 videos

Can you remember a time when YouTube did not exist? No? Neither do I.

Despite the fact that YouTube was only created in 2005, it’s become one of the largest content sharing platforms in the world.

Avid readers would remember the article we wrote on Psy’s Gangnam Style video which broke YouTube’s counter. Unbelievably, Gangnam Style had reached the maximum number of views that YouTube’s counter had imagined to be conceivable. It’s no surprise his video still tops this list.

Notably, the list comprises mostly of music videos with American singers making up the majority.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Here are the top 20 most viewed videos on YouTube – a list that excludes any of the videos that people suspect have been doctored.
