YouTube Reveals 2019 Top-Trending Videos

Written by 

Every streaming service has been putting out their end of year lists — with Spotify’s Wrapped yesterday and today, we’re nearly at the end.

Now, YouTube joins the fray with its list of 2019 top-trending videos and most-viewed music videos.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Lil Nas X’s video for “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus was the most-viewed video of the year. Published in May 2019, it has nearly 400 million views. In fact, of the top 10 most-viewed videos, the top six are all hip hop. (That is, if you count “Old Town Road” as a country/hip hop crossover.)

The rest of the list that isn’t hip hop consists of Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande, for “bad guy” and “7 Rings,” respectively.
