The song was released in the year 2017 in the Spanish language. Seeing the popularity of the song it was converted to various other languages including English and Hindi. But still, the native version remained on the top and is still on the list of the most viewed YouTube videos. 

#3. Johny Johny

If you are a YouTube content creator, then I have a suggestion for you. Start targeting the audience that uses YouTube for their toddlers. Who would have thought that the Rhyme we all grew up singing “JOHNY JOHNY… YES PAPA”, would take LooLoo kids to the list of the Most Viewed YouTube Videos one day.

Moving to the animated video of the song, it is about a small baby who is trying to eat some sugar. But, when his father (PAPA) asks him about the same he deters. The video shows the special bond between the father and the child. No doubt why parents want to show their kids this animated rhyme.

#4. Shape Of You

“Shape Of You” is the first and only song by Ed Sheeran to cross 5 Billion views on YouTube. The song barely needs any introduction, I bet all of us have listened to it in our GYMs, on Radio, or Spotify Playlists. It is also the “Trending song on Spotify” with 2,878,132,244 streams worldwide. If that isn’t huge Idk what is. 

Ed Sheeran first launched the lyrical video on his channel and on 30 January 2017 official video of the song was released. It only took 97 days for the song to reach the 1 Billion club and it is the fastest video to reach the milestone. We expect nothing less from our favorite rock singer.
