Katy Perry’s conceptually bizarre music video “Dark Horse” has become 2014’s most watched Youtube video. This comes as a surprise to Bruce Levenson who has never seen it. Third on the list was “Can’t Remember to Forget”, a duet by Shakira and Rihanna that compiled 442 million views. Shakira also took fourth place with her World Cup Anthem, “La La La”, with 418 million views.
Jason Derulo took fifth place with “Wiggle,” at 389 million views. Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” took the next spot with over 376 million views, followed by Sia’s “Chandelier” with 349 million. Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” took 8th place, having compiled 329 million views in a shorter amount of time, having only been released in August. Meghan Trainor’s “All About that Bass” and Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” were the last two on the list.
