List of most-viewed YouTube videos

"Despacito" by Luis Fonsi (left) featuring Daddy Yankee (right) is the most-viewed video on YouTube, with over 5.9 billion views as of February 2019.

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.[citation needed] 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 some of the previously most-viewed videos are no longer listed on the site, reaching the top of the list is still considered a tremendous feat.

In November 2005, a Nike advertisement featuring Brazilian football star Ronaldinho became the first video to reach one million views.[1] In December 2012, "Gangnam Style" became the first video to reach one billion views.[2] By June 2015, only "Baby" had managed to join this threshold; but, by October 2015, a total of ten videos had done so.[3] The number of billion-views videos reached 100 in February 2018,[4] and in July 2018, "November Rain" by Guns N' Roses became the first video created before the YouTube era to reach this threshold.[5]

In May 2014 "Gangnam Style" became the first video to exceed two billion views.[6] "Despacito" became the first video to reach three billion views in August 2017, and since has surpassed four billion in October 2017,[7] and five billion in April 2018.[8] As of February 2019, 31 videos have exceeded two billion views; seven of which exceed three billion views, three of which exceed four billion views and one of which exceeds five billion views. "See You Again" became the second video to reach three billion views in August 2017, followed by "Gangnam Style" in November 2017.[9][10] "Shape of You" became the second video to reach four billion views in January 2019, followed by "See You Again" in February 2019.

As of February 2019, the fastest videos to reach the one billion view mark are "Hello" (87 days), "Despacito" (96 days), "Shape of You" (97 days), "Mi Gente" (103 days) and "Échame la Culpa" (111 days).[11]

The fastest videos to reach two billion views are "Despacito" (154 days), "Shape of You" (187 days) and "Chantaje" (379 days),[12] and the fastest videos to reach three billion views are "Despacito" (203 days), "Shape of You" (342 days) and "See You Again" (852 days).[13]

As of February 2019, Justin Bieber is the only artist to have five videos exceeding one billion views,[14] while Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Nicky Jam, Shakira, J Balvin and Taylor Swift have four. Only two non-music videos are featured in the top 30 most-viewed. Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, Shakira and Justin Bieber are the only artists to have two videos exceeding two billion views.[A]
