The Top Ten YouTube Videos with Billions of Views!

Is it really true that YouTube has only existed in our world since 2005? Back then, the internet was a very different realm. On-site backends and peer-to-peer file sharing networks like LimeWire and Kazaa, videos were large, sluggish files.

Since it specialized in making video quicker and more accessible, YouTube is now the second most viewed website in the world, right after parent company Google, of course.

Who doesn’t remember “Charlie Bit Me” or the catchy chorus of “Gangnam Style”? Celebrities have also been formed (and unmade) through Instagram, and a number of YouTube videos have solidly cemented themselves in our common history, spanning borders, nations, and languages.

YouTube transformed how people throughout the world connect with one another, in addition to how we search and view videos.

Google estimates that the billion-plus monthly users of YouTube view more than one billion hours of video daily. That much video is a lot. These are the top 10 most-watched YouTube videos ever, and Pinkfong’s “Baby Shark Dance” recently became the first video to surpass 10 billion views.

1. “Baby Shark Dance” by Pinkfong (10.6 billion views)

It will be difficult to locate someone who has survived the last ten years without hearing this song. (If you did, congratulations.) Everyone knows Baby Shark, even those without children. Do, do, do, do. The song’s most well-known rendition was created by Pinkfong, a division of the South Korean entertainment organization SmartStudy.

Four years after its debut, it surpassed “Despacito” to become the most-watched video of all time in 2020. It was the first YouTube video to reach 10 billion views on January 13, 2022, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon. so adjust to it. Do, do, do, do.

2. “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi feat. Daddy Yankee (7.8 billion views)

In 2022, are you still bopping to Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi’s Spanish-language banger? We are also. Although it has a Justin Bieber remix, the original version has long been the most popular (until “Baby Shark Dance” overtook it).

Can we declare that it is the number one genuine song on the list? The song from 2017—the one you’re hearing in your brain right now—became a global success and has remained one of the most popular pop songs in the world for five years. It’s safe to argue that YouTube has been crucial to this success.

3. “Johny Johny Yes Papa” by LooLoo Kids (6.4 billion views)

This is strange, and things only get stranger from here. The song “Johny Johny Yes Papa” transforms the well-known “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” tune into a story about sugar abuse and family secrets. It was obviously going to become a meme, and it certainly did that on Twitter and YouTube.

An Indian YouTube channel called “Billion Surprise Toys” went all out for virality by incorporating “Baby Shark” allusions and “Gangnam Style” dancing techniques. It’s been called “disturbing” and “nonsensical,” so yep, that’s what it is. If you’re into that kind of thing, check it out for yourself.

4. “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran (5.7 billion views)

It’s a real song, so exhale with relief. Ed Sheeran, hello! This song from his 2017 album Divide is a hit everywhere it is performed, and given the singer’s mastery of social media, it is not surprising that he would achieve enormous success on YouTube as well.

For more Ed, “Thinking Out Loud” and “Perfect” are also in the top 30 most watched videos on YouTube, coming in at positions 18 and 28, respectively.

5. “See You Again” by Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth (5.4 billion views)

You should be familiar with “See You Again” even if you haven’t seen the complete Fast and the Furious series. Furious 7’s moving climax paid homage to the late hero of the movie, Paul Walker. It’s a smash formula with a comforting message, including Wiz Khalifa on the verses and piano and Charlie Puth on the piano.

6. “Bath Song” by Cocomelon Nursery Rhymes (5.3 billion views)

The bottom five most popular YouTube videos ever are an odd detour into the uncanny valley. Ready? With over five billion views, “Bath Song” flips a few songs, including “The Itsy-Bitsy Spider” and, yep, “Baby Shark Dance” (Wash my arms doo-doo-doo-doo-doo).

It has a nice message and is a song about hygiene. But there’s a spooky quality to it all that we can’t help but notice.

7. “Phonics Song with Two Words” by ChuChu TV (4.5 billion views)

The same song and video that previously knocked our good friend Psy and “Gangnam Style” out of the top ten are again surging to the top. Yes, it’s yet another kid-friendly movie. However, this one has some educational value, so that’s a plus: You get the idea: A stands for Apple, C for Cat, and U for Uncle. Let’s learn together.

8. “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars (4.5 billion views)

Music gets its due! With “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars still topping the charts, there is some optimism for the future. At the 58th Grammy Awards, this earworm won Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, but honestly, we’re just glad to see it break up the chaos of the other entries on this list.

9. “Learning Colors – Colorful Eggs on a Farm” by Miroshka TV (4.5 billion views)

I guess this is something. This unsettling Russian movie, which is purportedly aimed at “children,” teaches kids about the six basic (?) colors of black, brown, pink, white, red, and blue while playing “Old MacDonald Had a Farm.”

How does it accomplish this? through the natural process of little egg men cracking up their heads to be filled with goo. And for some reason, the fourth egg, which appears evil, is there. Excellent work all around.

10. “Masha and The Bear – Recipe for Disaster” by getting Movies (4.5 billion views)

We reached the finish line. Was the idea of the internet bad? Maybe! Masha and The Bear are the final entry on the list of the most popular YouTube videos. You can watch it above or read here why Russian psychologists believe it to be “damaging” to children’s psyche, so don’t take my word for it.

The life of a bear companion is greatly disrupted in this 4.5 billion-view film by a hyperactive girl named Masha, yet there are no lessons to be learned and everything turns out OK in the end. Crossing our fingers that we will as well.
