List of All Music Videos Over 1 Billion Views on YouTube (Update: March 2020)

1 billion views on YouTube is still a significant achievement considering the world population is only 7,714,576,923 (7.7 billion) as we step to the new year of 2019. 1 billion views is nearly 1/7th of the world population. Things get more interesting when we limit the number of people having access to the Internet to watch these videos. According to Wikipedia, global Internet users were estimated around 3.5 billion (48% of 7.4 billion population) in 2017. So, if we assume 50% of the world population has access to the Internet in 2019, we would be comparing 1 billion views in a population of 3.85 billion. That is nearly 1/4th of the population. The crazier fact is the song that tops this list has 5.85 billion views as of January 2019!

After that mind-boggling lesson on statistics, we are getting to the good part now.

The list below is compiled using Wikipedia’s article on most-viewed YouTube videos, which features non-music videos as well. We have stripped off the non-music videos and compiled the below list to only include songs.

Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Shakira, Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber each have 2 videos exceeding 2 billion views on each video.

Veterans in the industry such as Enrique Iglesias, Rihanna, Eminem and Maroon 5, and new entrees such as Cardi B and Dua Lipa also share this chart as a testimony to the power of undying music and voice of people.

Psy’s global hit “Gangnam Style” was the first video to reach 1 billion and 2 billion views for a music video in 2012 and 2014 respectively.

With the yearly increase in population and access to the internet, reaching 1 billion views on YouTube would not be a significant achievement in a few years to come. But for now, these artists and videos own a coveted title of crossing a significant milestone.
