Throwback time of what you watched, shared, and created in 2018
In 2018, you danced your heart out to Drake, fell in love with Grandpa Kitchen’s Chicken Biryani Recipe, discovered Amit Bhadana -- the new comedy king on the block [also featured in the global Top 10 Trending non-music videos of 2018] who amassed an astounding 11 million subscribers in just one year, enjoyed peppy Bollywood music, learnt the trendiest winged eyeliner beauty hack, used waste to create art, and watched the trailer of the movie Sanju 62 million times.
This year was marked by surprising celebrity moments. In February, Kylie Jenner surprised the world with “To Our Daughter,” an 11-minute film detailing her pregnancy and the birth of baby Stormi, which was watched over 53 million times on its way to becoming YouTube's global #1 Top Trending Video of 2018. Will Smith vlogged all over the world. Oh, and he also jumped out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon on a dare. Rihanna started her own “Tutorial Tuesdays” makeup series. And, of course, Beyoncé's livestream from Coachella took #Beychella worldwide.
Moreover, India learnt a great deal this year! From new dance moves on the year’s biggest haryanvi super-hit song Teri Aakhya Ka Yo Kajal and punjabi hit Daru Badnaam to Zumba on Bom Diggy Diggy Bum; and many unique things like Dairy Farming, Magic and Painting.
Following the success of last year’s monster hit Despacito, Latin Music has continued to explode on YouTube in 2018. In fact, eight of the ten most-watched music videos over the past year were by Latin artists.
