YouTube Top 10 Music Videos of 2018 Dominated by Spanish-Language Tracks

YouTube Top 10 Music Videos of 2018 Dominated by Spanish-Language Tracks

In 2018, the two English-language tracks on YouTube's music-video chart were Maroon 5's "Girls Like You" featuring Cardi B (No. 3) and Drake's "God's Plan" (No. 8). It also set the YouTube record for the fastest video to garner 100 million views, reaching the milestone in less than four days.

It was still pleasant to see those present take over control of Rewind and use it to let the fans control some aspects of it as well.

Unlike many popular yearly roundups, the YouTube Rewind video is inclusive to countries outside of the United States and pays homage to the viral videos, artists and creators of many countries around the world. "'Cause 2018 YouTube REWIND will surpass it in the next 12 hours!"

This year, those people include actors like Will Smith and comedians like Jon Oliver.

As you might expect, Fortnite dominated proceedings for YouTube Rewind 2018 with plenty of nods and emotes, as well as popular players of the game, such as Nick Eh 30 and Ninja, featuring prominently. Though the trio has begun working on the big screen over the past year so perhaps that's why?

In 2017, Disney dropped YouTube vlogger Felix Kjellberg, known as "PewDiePie", from its collection of YouTube channels called Maker Studios. This is up from a year ago, when half of the top 10 videos were locally produced.

Will Smith stars in this year's YouTube Rewind and people aren't happy about it - especially since influential stars like Daniel Howell, Phil Lester and Shane Dawson have been missed out. Admittedly, the list of creators featured in the video was small compared with the Rewinds of years' past, and the absence of some was felt keenly, if the video's dislike ratio and the comments section is anything to go by. It looks like they aren't the only ones who are disappointed in this year's video.

Google Singapore's head of communications, Ms Angeline Leow, said YouTube is a platform for Singaporeans to be entertained and to express themselves.
