The YouTube Rewind 2018 video might have sank like a lead balloon when it was released on December 6, but it's not all bad for the platform. Here are the top 20 most liked videos. 


The YouTube Rewind was supposed to be a celebration of content creation during the year of 2018, however the video wasn't met with open arms by viewers and was disliked more than anything in the platform's history.

Nevertheless, there are still many videos on YouTube which can still celebrate record numbers of likes. While there is not a place on the list for gaming, content creators in the industry shouldn't feel hard done by as there isn't room for much else other than music - which dominates every one of the 20 slots.


Popular figures such as Drake, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars and others made the cut, though, the highest like percentage on the list is 'Heathens' by Twenty One Pilots - which may raise a few eyebrows.

Anyway, let's check out the list.

Marshmello has stormed into the top 20 with his track Alone, and it seems that the electronic artist isn't finished there.

The DJ appears to be collaborating with massively popular game Fortnite, with a mysterious music video featuring the star found in a Fortnite update in January.
