'Despacito' tops YouTube list of 2017's most-viewed music videos

Not only is Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's massive hit the most viewed music video this year, but it's also the most viewed YouTube video of all time. To that end, it will create a regular report in 2018 offering more data about the flags it receives, as well as the actions being taken to remove both videos and comments that violate its guidelines.

Now, as a byproduct of policing its platform, YouTube will "jack up" ad prices on its top-performing channels by as much as 20%. This year's offering, "The Shape of 2017", has a music theme - and it's set to some of 2017's most popular songs. The show, called The Mask Singer, requires performers to wear elaborate masks to hide their identities.

Some 250 advertisers earlier this year also said they would boycott YouTube because of extremist videos that promoted hate and violence. Last year, the Carpool Karaoke clip starring Adele claimed the top spot. Last month, YouTube expanded its takedown policy to cover not just videos that depicted violent extremism, but also content that includes "people and groups that have been designated as terrorist by the US or British governments", likely after feeling the pressure from various countries to clean up its act.
