The 10 Most Viral Music Videos Ever
Music videos have completely dominated the YouTube space, obliterating popular MTV programs and making the Internet a one-stop shop for newly launched content from today’s hottest artists and breakout stars.
Thanks to our friends at Visible Measures, we have the top 10 most-watched music videos of all time, including obvious standouts like Psy’s “Gangnam Style” and Justin Bieber’s “Baby,” along with some possible surprises.
Since each video’s popularity is ranked by True Reach, the total number of views for each selection are pulled from the original music video as well as any related content, including fan covers, live performances, mashups, parodies, and more.
The total number of views for the list is 12.4 billion. Way to go, YouTube!
