Top 20 most liked YouTube videos (July 2023)
YouTube channels rely heavily on viewers, subscribers, and likes to move up the charts. Now, though, the most-liked videos are now coming from music artists rather than content creators. Here is a full list of the top 20 most liked YouTube videos.
What category has the most liked videos on YouTube?
At one point, viral videos and uploads from full-time YouTubers dominated all YouTube lists but now, the majority are all about music.
Luis Fonsi’s ‘Despacito’ is the most liked video on YouTube, and has been for several years after being a major hit when it came out in 2017, and is still one of the most played songs of the summer.
The video is shortly followed by the song “See you again” by Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth, but it still has over ten million likes to go to get ahead of Despacito.
Which artists are on the list?
Other popular music figures such as BTS, Billie Eilish, and Alan Walker among others, all made the cut with at least one song. Sheeran also joins the list by having his song ‘Shape of You’ sitting inside the top 20.
