YouTube is sharing its most streamed music videos of 2018, and the top 10 includes Drake and Maroon 5 (obviously), plus eight Spanish-language tracks.
Was 2018 the year of latin pop?
Variety is sharing the answer. The top 10 most-viewed music videos of the year include Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You” featuring Cardi B at No. 3 and Drake’s “God’s Plan” at No. 8. Not that we’re surprised.
Plus, Puerto Rican singer Ozuna takes three of the top spots. The remaining five videos are also Spanish-language songs.
Although Ariana Grande‘s super fetch “thank u, next” video didn’t make the list, it broke some YouTube records. After beating BTS‘ “Idol” for the record of most views in 24 hours, it became the fastest video to reach 100 million views. It only took the video four days to reach the milestone.

More end of the year lists
