Will anyone take on these video giants?!

We're steaming through the year, and with millions of YouTube videos seemingly uploaded every single day, it's time to find out which ones have made their mark on 2017 so far. Thanks to Wikipedia, we've rounded up the top five most watched YouTube videos of 2017 for you to watch, love and argue over as we move further into the year.

Sadly, the list features no creators as A List musicians take over the upper levels of YouTube popularity. In fact, it's been this way since 2008 when one of the final "viral" videos that topped the charts was Charlie Bit My Finger and The Evolution of Dance. So let's get right into the list, and don't worry, all this information was correct at the time of writing and we will be regularly updating it throughout the year.



5) "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" - Taylor Swift & Zayn (January 26th, 256 million views)


4) "El Amante" - Nicky Jam (January 15th, 370 million views)


3) "Shape Of You (Lyric Video)" - Ed Sheeran (January 5th, 548 million views)


2) "Shape Of You (Official Video)" - Ed Sheeran (January 30th, 699 million views)


1) "Despacito" - Luis Fons (January 12th, 880 million views)
