Latino artists' popularity on YouTube is proof that they are massively popular in worldwide markets, even if they continue to face barriers to entry in mainstream music in the U.S. What's more, it points to the fact that Latino listeners have been shaping global pop music trends for some time (check pop's current obsession with dembow-lite riddims for proof).
Ireland's most watched videos of 2017 have been announced by YouTube. It's been produced in Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, and China, but this particular video is from a Thailand show. Seven out of the 10 spots on YouTube's list come from Latino artists, including the inescapable "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber, which has also become the most-watched video on the platform of all time, dethroning Korean viral sensation Psy's "Gangnam Style" with over 4.4 billion plays.
Not surprising, however, is that the list is dominated by Irish music - claiming the top four spots. The entire list is men, even though women definitely produced some great music and quality videos to match.
