YouTube channels rely heavily on viewers, subscribers and likes to move up the charts. But, 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.

Both Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’ and Luis Fonsi’s ‘Despacito’ have hit over 3 million dislikes, but the positive likes from fans and supporters far outweigh the negative feedback from their ‘haters’. Bieber’s song especially was a battleground between likes and dislikes – with both sides trying to beat the other. Yet, there are no active wars going in on any of the like and dislike sections of the newer videos.

Which artists are on the list?

Other popular music figures such as Bruno Mars, BTS, and Maroon 5, among others, all made the cut with at least one song. Sheeran also joins Justin Bieber and Maroon 5 in having his song  ‘Shape of You’ sitting inside the top 20.

New York-born rapper Cardi B also features on the list, but not in a song where she is the main artist. She features on Girls Like You from Maroon 5, and narrowly misses out on the top 20 with Taki Taki from DJ Snake.

MrBeast is the only individual YouTube creator to the list, with ‘Make This Video The Most Liked Video On Youtube’ upload from January of 2019. However, he is on the verge of dropping out should a viral hit come along.

A few surprises even snuck through, too. ‘Mi Gente’ by J Balvin and Willy William, has secured a spot, despite not having the huge fan following of some of the other names on the list.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
