Rosalía, Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, DaBaby, Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande also ranked on the platform's year-end top 10 charts.

YouTube has unveiled its top music videos of the year, with Daddy Yankee and Lil Nas X topping the lists globally and stateside, respectively. 

Daddy Yankee’s “Con Calma” feat. Snow took the No. 1 slot on the worldwide music video chart (it ranked No. 10 in the U.S.), while the non-music video version of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road – Remix” feat. Billy Ray Cyrus was the most-streamed video in the U.S. Lil Nas X actually enjoyed two entries on the U.S. chart, as the official music video for “Old Town Road – Remix” took the No. 5 spot on the list.

Aside from Daddy Yankee, the only artists to place on both the global and U.S. charts were Billie Eilish (whose  “bad guy” finished at No. 7 on the U.S. list and No. 9 worldwide) and Ariana Grande (whose “7 Rings” finished at No. 9 and No. 10 on the U.S. and global charts, respectively).

Notably, Latin artists made up the majority of the global chart, with heavy-hitters including Rosalía, J Balvin, Anuel AA, Karol G, Ozuna, Bad Bunny and Daddy Yankee (who also appears in the No. 4 video “China”) all ranking in the top 10. Elsewhere, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes’ “Señorita” charted in sixth place, while the Bollywood music video “Rowdy Baby” (from the Maari 2 movie soundtrack) finished in seventh and BLACKPINK’s “Kill This Love” video charted at No. 8.

On the U.S. chart, American hip-hop dominated. The music video for Dababy’s “Suge (Yea Yea)” finished at No. 2, while videos from Yo Gotti (“Put a Date On It” ft. Lil Baby), Polo G (“Pop Out” ft. Lil Tjay), Offset (“Clout” ft. Cardi B) and 21 Savage (“a lot” feat. J. Cole) were also represented.
