Have you ever wondered which YouTube videos get the most views? There are so many videos on this platform these days that for one of them to take off, it has to stand out. Or the video’s target audience must use YouTube a lot…
Among the most-watched videos on YouTube, music videos have always topped the rankings, and this content has been a huge growth driver for the platform. However, a whole new category has come to dominate the platform, without moving away from music …
- BABY SHARK DANCE – KIDS SONGS AND STORY
With more 13 billions of views, Baby Shark Dance is by far the most viewed video on the Youtube platform. Just goes to show that fun videos aimed at children are a big hit.
2. DESPACITO – LUIS FUNSI
This music that I think every person on earth has heard at least once (and only once for someone lucky). Despacito has been a hit since its release and has generated over 8 billion of views.
3. JOHNY JOHNY YES PAPA – LOOLOO KIDS
Another children’s music hit, taking 3rd place in this ranking: Johny Johny yes papa has over 6.7 billion of views.
4. BATH SONG – COCOMELON NURSERY RHYMES

5. SHAPE OF YOU – ED SHEERAN

6. SEE YOU AGAIN – WIZ KHALIFA FEAT. CHARLIE PUTH
The soundtrack to an iconic film: Fast and Furious 7. If you’re an avid fan, you’ll know that this is a tribute to an actor from the film who died on the set, Paul Walker. The clip currently has 6 trillion views.
7. WHEELS ON THE BUS – WHEELS ON THE BUS
You thought it was over? And no nursery rhymes are never far away. With 5.7 billions of views, Wheels on the Bus ranks 7th.
8. PHONICS SONG WITH TWO WORDS
With 5.5 trillion views, here is the video occupying the 8th place. Another kid’s song, that’s correct.
9. UPTOWN FUNK – MARK RONSON FEAT. BRUNO MARS
The timeless music “Uptown Funk” and its 100% good vibes clip that makes you dance every time is in 9th and penultimate position of this ranking. Today, the clip has 5 trillion views.
10. COLORFUL EGGS ON A FARM – MIROSHKA TV
And last but not least … a kid’s song ! With 5 trillion views, Colorful Eggs on a farm just finished our ranking.
Children’s content and music videos dominate this top 10. In addition, Baby shark, this haunting song (which makes us almost crazy) was the first youtube video to reach the threshold of 10 billion views.
To conclude, we can all understand that children’s music is hugely dominant on the Youtube platform these days, so much so that the top 10 alone is occupied by 6 children’s songs compared to just 4 music videos. Let’s see next year if the children’s reign continues to grow!
