What YouTube videos have the most views in 2021 so far? Let’s check out the video stats you couldn’t get enough of this year!
10. PSY – GANGNAM STYLE
We’re calling it now – this song is never going to die. It may not seem like so long ago, but this song has spread its infectious tune since 2012.
Beyond the catchy beat, there’s a message in the song and video that perhaps no one ever told you. Psy’s goofy video is actually mocking the Korean equivalent of Beverly Hills. You can see all of his ridiculously flamboyant antics seam together to form a parody archetype of the narcissistic, party-life elites.

5. See You Again by Wiz Khalifa featuring Charlie Puth
Since 2001, the Fast & Furious movie franchise has claimed millions of fans worldwide. For everyone from the OG fans to newcomers, the signature video replays the entire backstory of Paul Walker.

2. Luis Fonsi – Despacito ft. Daddy Yankee
Although most of us can’t sing it word for word, Despacito got the most YouTube views of 2021 for a reason. It broke all-time records after receiving 3 billion views, but we didn’t stop there – it now has 4 billion!
Luis Fonsi literally wrote the hit overnight and co-star Daddy Yankee’s flair set the cherry on top. The Puerto Rican setting was perfect for the uniquely striking story of a budding romance. In contrast to many modern videos, Fonsi’s masterpiece portrays his attraction in a pleasantly respectful manner. The women in his video are free from objectification while the underlying love story offers a refreshing break from our typically superficial intimacies.
