A subsidiary of Google, Youtube is the internet videos arm of Google Inc. company. Youtube was founded since 2005 and now it has grown to be the largest internet video broadcasting and video-sharing website in the world. Youtube has now come to represent a 'portion' of the popularity of music artists. Through Youtube, music artists promote their songs as well as being discovered and become popular themselves. A good example is Justin Bieber, who, at age 12 started posting homemade videos of himself on YouTube. On 2009, through Youtube, he became very popular and famous music superstar. In this ranking, he has 3 songs on the Top 10 Most Viewed Songs on Youtube. The top number one song with the most views on Youtube is Baby ft. Ludacris from Justin Bieber. The song 'Baby ft. Ludacris' is the first Youtube video to reach half a billion views! The second most viewed Youtube video is a song from Jennifer Lopez - On The Floor ft. Pitbull.
This list of the Top 10 Songs with most views on Youtube are solely based on their number of views or visits. One important thing to note is that the likes and dislikes reflect the overall 'positive' or 'negative' popularity of the song. If we take into account the quality and not the quantity of the views of the song, then that would be a different issue and another story. This ranking and listing is purely based on numbers! These stats are based on the number of visits and plays from the Youtube video-sharing website. It is not safe to say that these songs are the 'Top 10 most played Youtube song videos of all time' because everyday, statistics are changing and everyday, new artists become so quickly popular and would outrank current positions in this list.
