GIGAVIEW IS NEW NORMAL

Bigly Big Data, naturlich! YouTube Top-10 most viewed videos of all time starts with “Despasito” by Luis Fonsi scoring 6.3+ GigaViews (Billion Views). This astronomical number close to estimated world population of 7.7B greatly exceeds entire Internet user-base (about 3.9B users worldwide), thus raising a reasonable concern regarding the accuracy of YouTube view stats reporting.

The entrance level to this YouTube Top-20 club is about 2.4 GigaViews. Notably, 19 items pertain to music-videos category. Most lyrics written in English, except for “Despasito” and “Chantaje” (both in Spanish). The only non-music video “Masha and the Bear” ('Маша и Медведь') is in Russian.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

First in Giga range. Historically, the first video item to break the gigaview mark was "Baby" by Justin Bieber. Interestingly, this video had very low 'likability' (Like/Dislike) ratio of about 40%. Currently, it's not even appeared in this Top-20 league, where "entrance level" increased to 2+ GViews.

SIC TRANSIT. Notably, neither Madonna nor Michael Jackson made it to top-20 list. Not even close! Well, sic transit gloria mundi, as the old saying goeth...

STAY CLASSY

Charts YouTube

Tutto Bene, Antonio! Sehr Gut, Wolfgang! Ludwig, you the Mann! All three titans of the past crossed the important 100 MegaViews milestone, sucessfully competing against best cat videos.

BIG TIME!

Charts YouTube

Bigly Big Data stats: mankind cumulatively spent about quarter million years listening to 'Wheels On The Bus' nursery rhymes and 59k years watching 'Despacito' video.
