Top 10 Most Viewed Songs on YouTube

It’s undeniable that YouTube is an addictive tool that compels users to watch endless recommendations on it for hours on end. People surely gave their time to see many songs this year, including many that won’t even be published until 2022 but yet rank among the most-watched music videos of that year. These catchy melodies are an obsession for many individuals. So, the top 10 songs on YouTube in 2022 are listed below.

Top 10 Highest Viewed Songs on YouTube

10. Katy Perry- Roar:

“Roar,” a song by Perry from 2013, is still going strong. It made history in February 2020 when it became the first video with a female lead to receive 3 billion views. It makes sense why it’s one of the most-watched music videos on YouTube. In the middle of a jungle, a jet crashes to begin the action-packed clip. Up until a tiger appears, Perry and her lover make the best of the dangerous environment. The unfortunate guy ends up as tiger chow, and Perry goes on solitary adventures after that. The video ends with Perry taming the tiger by yelling at it while using her stiletto heel as a spear in a corny metaphor about female empowerment and personal growth.

9. Justin Bieber- Sorry:

The 2015 tropical pop/house song by Justin Bieber is slightly ahead. It is a simple but appealing dance music video on YouTube featuring a bright color explosion and strong motions. Interestingly, the pop star isn’t even in it. The Royal Family Dance Crew and the ReQuest Dance Crew are both very talented. Overall, it’s a guaranteed summer smash that wistful people keep watching.

8. Maroon 5- Sugar:

The 2014 coffee-shop radio smash “Sugar” by Maroon 5 is next on the list, continuing in a (disappointingly) non-alien trend. The band’s viral YouTube video had viewers wondering if it was faked or real.
This is why: Maroon 5 has disrupted five weddings in Los Angeles, just like in the romantic comedy Wedding Crashers, for their music video. This bold move paid off, as the brides and grooms are having the time of their lives.
The film wasn’t made at the expense of any marriages.

7. El Chombo- Dame Tu Cosita featuring, Cutty Ranks:

Finally, ladies and gentlemen: dancing aliens! It’s one of those internet-related things that you might find it challenging to explain to your parents. Nevertheless, it’s one of the most popular YouTube videos right now. This masterpiece of a music video from 2018 is a remix of the one from 1997. After several lip-syncing contests on, it became well-known. People were making an effort to dance like the little green guy all around the world.

6. PSY- Gangnam Style:

A list of the most-watched YouTube videos would be incomplete without adding Gangnam Style. The 2012 smash hit redefined the term “viral.” The video received one billion views, becoming the first in YouTube history to do so. It’s PSY’s iconic horseback riding maneuvers. They captivated everyone in the world, including well-known politicians, activists, and athletes. Numerous parodies have been created based on enduring choreography. It continues to be a major factor in popular culture.

5. Mark Ronson – Uptown Funk. Feat. Bruno Mars:

The 2014 funky collaboration between Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars is another well-known YouTube musical icon. The 80s boogie-funk feel of the song is faithfully captured in the retro-styled video, which features dancing and prancing by Ronson, Mars, and the backing band. They are even getting perms for their hair at one point. Ronson is mostly just nodding his head to the music; Mars is performing most of the dancing.
Even if the idea isn’t novel, it’s still regarded as one of the greatest music videos ever made. At the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, the video won Best Male Video.

4. Wiz Khalifa- See You Again. Feat. Charlie Puth:

For a brief period, the straightforward and depressing music video on YouTube received the most views (from July 10 to August 4, 2017). The song, which honors Paul Walker, is on the Furious 7 (2015) soundtrack. In the video that goes along with this song, Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth (ft. many automobiles) let their feelings run wild. With the words “For Paul” showing and then fading away, it finishes on a bittersweet note. In the comments section, fans continue to visit and pay respects to the late actor.

3. Ed Sheeran- Shape of You:

One of the most well-known songs of all time is “Shape of you” (2017), which came in ninth on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Additionally, it became the song with the highest Spotify stream volume for the 2010s. This Sheeran song deviates from his usual gloomy, strummy guitar fare. It is a positive tropical-house song that discusses the more physical aspects of love. That is well captured in the song video. In the film, Sheeran trains with American dancer and model Jennie Pegouskie, the two share a meal, share a passionate kiss in a cab, and engage in combat against a 584-pound sumo wrestler.

2. Luis Fonsi- Despacito. Feat. Daddy Yankee:

This Latin pop legend’s 2017 video became the first in history to receive seven billion views on YouTube. The emphasis of the video is on having fun. It offers a glimpse of San Juan, Puerto Rico’s thriving La Perla district. Zuleyka Rivera, the Miss Universe 2006, also makes an appearance in the clip. Some people may find it comforting to frequently see this song on their timeline rather than the nursery rhymes that previously led the list of most-watched music videos.

1. Baby Shark Dance:

The most-watched YouTube video is “Baby Shark Dance,” which has received 9.2 billion views to date! Real children are depicted rather than strangely soulless 3D animation. The catchy song and simple-to-learn dance moves have made “Baby Shark Dance” famous. Red Velvet and Black Pink, two K-pop groups, also performed their renditions, which sparked a variety of dance contests. An absurd internet chain reaction illustration. You might be shocked to learn that adults enjoy this song as well as children.
