'Gangnam Style' Is No Longer The Most Viewed YouTube Video Of All Time


After years of domination, Psy’s Gangnam Style has been overtaken as the most watched YouTube video of all time. 

With 2,894,800,000 views, it’s now second to Wiz Khalifa’s 2015 hit, See You Again (2,896,551,000).


The song (which hails from the Furious 7 soundtrack, and pays tribute to the late Paul Walker) has been in second place for quite some time now, but might not get long at the top.

In just four months, Despacito has garnered a staggering 2,487,667,000 views.

In fact, the majority of the 25 most viewed YouTube videos are relatively recent music videos. The likes of Sorry (Justin Bieber), Uptown Funk (Bruno Mars), Shake It Off (Taylor Swift) and Shape Of You (Ed Sheeran) have all surpassed the one billion mark.

The oldest video on the list is Justin Bieber’s Baby, which came out in 2010.

For old time’s sake, here’s Gangnam Style:
