YouTube has just revealed its most popular videos for 2017. The lists are broken down into Top Trending and Top Music, and were compiled based on views, likes, comments, shares, and more, according to YouTube.
The top 10 videos in the trending category were viewed more than 633 million times for over 40 million hours on Google’s video platform.

YouTube also revealed its top ten music videos for the year. Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” finally unseated “Gangnam Style’s” five-year reign to become the most-viewed YouTube music video of all time. Notably, six of the top ten music videos this year come from Latin artists.
