YouTube Reveals Australia’s Most-Watched Music Videos Of 2017

Did you watch any of them?

As you’ve probably noticed, end of year list season is upon us!

We’ve already found out what Spotify’s most streamed tracks of the year were and which triple j Like A Version clocked up the most views, now it’s YouTube’s turn to get in on the action. They’ve just revealed Australia’s ten most-watched music videos of 2017, and the results are…well, they’re not surprising at all.

English mop Ed Sheeran has once again landed at the top with his hit ‘Shape Of You‘, thanks to an official video that sees him throw weak punches at some gym bags (we can only assume it’s a metaphor for him punching above his weight with the video’s love interest). Hell, even the song’s lyric video made it into the list, placing at #9.

DJ Khaled’s ‘I’m The One’ comes in at #2, while Bruno Mars’ animated vid for ‘That’s What I Like’ rounds out the top three.

Taylor Swift’s much-debated ‘Look What You Made Me Do‘ got in there at #6 — no mean feat considering the video only came out in August — while Kendrick Lamar’s ‘HUMBLE.‘ snuck in just behind at #7.

Check out the full ranking below.
