¡Más récords para Ariana Grande!

0

Ariana Grande está muy obviamente en la cima de su carrera y es por supuesto entrada directa al número 1 en álbumes en Reino Unido con su nuevo disco, el recomendable ‘thank u, next’, pues ha vendido 80.816 copias en su primera semana. Además, también llega al top 1 directo en singles con el tema para el que presentaba vídeo la semana pasada, ‘Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored’.

¿Qué supone todo esto? Algún que otro récord que sumar a su discografía. En primer lugar es la primera mujer de la historia que es a la vez número 1 de discos, número 1 de singles y número 2 de singles a la vez, pues ‘7 Rings’ cae desplazada por “Break Up” desde el número 1 al número 2. Además, es la primera mujer de la historia en reemplazarse a sí misma en el número 1. También es la primera vez que una mujer ocupa los dos principales puestos de la lista de singles británica desde que Madonna fuera número 1 y número 2 con ‘Into the Groove’ y ‘Holiday’ durante una semana de agosto de 1985.

A falta de que se conozcan los datos oficiales de Estados Unidos, donde rondará las 300.000 copias en su primera semana siendo top 1 con toda certeza, el álbum ‘thank u, next’ es número 1 en Suecia, Noruega, Nueva Zelanda o Irlanda, además de número 2 en Holanda e Italia y número 3 en Alemania.

Katy Perry & Zedd’s “365” Sounds Like A Massive Hit!

0

The wait is over! Rumors have been swirling about Katy Perry and Zedd’s pop-saving collaboration for months now. It all started when the “Happy Now” hitmaker hopped on WITNESS: The Tour in late 2018. However, those rumors picked up speed last month after the duo registered a track called “365” with Universal Music Publishing Group. Since then, anticipation has been sky-high to hear what they cooked up in the studio. Today (February 14), it is finally out! And it sounds like a potentially massive hit. Boasting an addictive production and sugary sweet lyrics, the single is perfectly tailored for a Valentine’s Day release.

“Waking up next to you in the middle of the week. Never needed anyone to send me off to sleep. And I know I said go slow, but I can’t hold back no more,” Katy sings. She falls even deeper in love on the chorus. “Are you gonna be the one that’s on my mind? 365, all the time? I want you to be the one to stay. You give me the night and day.” That sentiment takes on a different connotation in the accompanying video, which plays with concepts of love and obsession. In the Warren Fu-directed release, the “Bon Appetit” diva is an android who develops feelings for the very-human Zedd. There are some twists and turns, all of which build up to a heartbreaking ending. Basically, it is essential viewing.

Zedd opened up how the song came about in a press release. “Katy and I have known each other for a while now and while on tour together in Australia last summer, we started working on some music,” he explained. “After we got off tour and with our musical value systems even more aligned we continued working together and that’s when ‘365’ started to take shape. As it all came together, we knew we had something special.” Katy echoed his message. “I was really excited for Zedd to join my WITNESS: The Tour last year, and in our down time, we started vibing on music, which led to this special song.” Check it out below!

Cardi B Reunites With Bruno Mars On New Single “Please Me”

0

It has been a wild week for Cardi B. The Rap Empress kicked things off on an incredible high after making history at the Grammys. During the show, she delivered a suitably eye-popping rendition of current single “Money” and served a look on the red carpet. However, her night got even better when she picked up the Grammy for Best Rap Album. The accomplishment makes her the first female rapper to win the category as a solo artist. However, shortly after delivering her (iconic) acceptance speech, people began complaining that she didn’t deserve the honor. After defending herself on Instagram, the 26-year-old disabled her account for a while to escape the hate.

However, she didn’t let the naysayers keep her down for long. Instead, she ended her “retirement” early to announce a new collaboration with fellow Grammy winner Bruno Mars. The duo linked up on last year’s retro “Finesse (Remix),” which hit the number 3 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. And it seems safe to assume that they have another massive hit on their hands with their latest – “Please Me.” Boasting production from Bruno and The Stereotypes, it’s a sensual bop. The “That’s What I Like” crooner shows off his velvety vocals on the seductive chorus. “Please me, baby. Turn around and just tease me, baby,” he pleads. Meanwhile, Cardi’s verses are as self-assured and smooth as ever.

Hopefully a video follows very soon. After the vibrant, mega-viral release that accompanied “Finesse (Remix),” I’m dying to see what they have in store this time around. In the meantime, press play on “Please Me” below!

Cardi B Is The First Woman Solo Artist To Win Best Rap Album At The Grammys

0

one of the year’s most exciting breakout artists, became the first-ever woman to win the Grammy for Best Rap Album on Sunday during music’s biggest night.The rapper won the highly coveted award for her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, which spawned two No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Oh my god, babe,” said Cardi to her husband, Offset. “Babe, I can’t breathe.”

The rapper thanked some of the people who made her success possible and singled out her daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, for a special shoutout.

“I’m not just saying thank you because she’s my daughter — it’s because you know when I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete,” Cardi said. “I had like three songs that I was for sure having [on the album] and then it was like we have to get this album done.” Cardi then talked about the work she had to put in after finding out she was going to be a mother, like shooting music videos for the project before she began to show.

“Woo, the nerves are so bad,” she said, telling the audience that she was shaking and joked that she should “start smoking weed,” an apparent reference to something a fan tweeted at her earlier this week as a remedy to calm her anxiety. She later celebrated the many talented artists featured on her album in her emotional speech, like Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Chance the Rapper, SZA, and Kehlani, and of course Migos, the hip-hop trio her husband is a part of.

The song is Grande’s second leader, and second to launch at the summit.

0

Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” shines atop the Billboard Hot 100, blasting in at No. 1 on the chart dated Feb. 2.The song is Grande’s second Hot 100 No. 1 and second to start on top, following “Thank U, Next,” which debuted atop the chart dated Nov. 17, and led for seven total weeks.Let’s run down the top 10 of the Hot 100, which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and digital sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Jan. 29).

“Rings,” released on Republic Records, arrives as the 1,083rd No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 60-year history, and launches as the week’s most-streamed and top-selling song.

Following the Jan. 18 premiere of the song and its official video, “Rings” debuts at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart with 85.3 million U.S. streams in the week ending Jan. 24, according to Nielsen Music. The sum marks the second-biggest streaming week ever for a song by a female artist, after Grande’s own “Next,” which drew 93.8 million, as reflected on the chart dated Dec. 15, following the premiere of its official video. (Drake’s “In My Feelings” holds the overall record: 116.1 million; July 28.) Grande earns her second Streaming Songs No. 1, after “Next.”

“Rings” also roars in at No. 1 on Digital Song Sales, with 96,000 downloads sold in the week ending Jan. 24. Grande adds her fifth No. 1 on the survey. The total is the best for a song in six months, since Drake’s “Feelings” sold 104,000 (Aug. 4), and the best for a female artist since Grande’s “No Tears Left to Cry” (100,000; May 5). (“Next” hit a weekly high of 81,000 in its debut week.)

“Rings” additionally arrives at No. 39 on Radio Songs, with 27.5 million audience impressions in its first full tracking week (ending Jan. 27).

The song is the radio follow-up to “Next,” and follows the track “Imagine,” which debuted and peaked at No. 24 on the Hot 100 (Dec. 29). All three songs are from Grande’s forthcoming album, Thank U, Next, the follow-up to Sweetener, which bowed as her third Billboard 200 No. 1 in September.

Let’s ring up more facts about Grande’s new No. 1:

Grande entrance: “Rings” is the 33rd single to debut at No. 1 on the Hot 100, while Grande becomes just the fifth artist with multiple No. 1 starts, joining Mariah Carey, the leader with three, Justin Bieber, Drake and Britney Spears (two each).

In the Hot 100’s history, Grande is the first artist whose first two No. 1s have both debuted at the pinnacle.

(Before “Next” and “Rings,” no female artist had entered atop the Hot 100 since Adele with “Hello” in November 2015; seven songs then started at No. 1 until “Next.”)

Back at 1: Grande collects her second Hot 100 No. 1 just two months and two weeks after “Next” opened on top. That’s the quickest accumulation of leaders for an artist (in a lead role) since Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” hit No. 1 only three weeks after “Sorry” first reached No. 1 in early 2016. Among women, Grande lands the fastest succession of new No. 1s since Rihanna’s “What’s My Name?,” featuring Drake, hit the top spot on Nov. 20, 2010, and “Only Girl (In the World)” followed just two weeks later (Dec. 4).

Ariana Grande performs onstage during the 2018 iHeartRadio by AT&T at Banc of California Stadium on June 2, 2018 in Los Angeles.

‘Sound of’ No. 1: “Rings” channels the melody of The Sound of Music‘s “My Favorite Things,” and sports writing credits for the classic song’s iconic composers, the late Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. Along with Sound, the pair created beloved Broadway musicals including The King and I, Oklahoma! and South Pacific.

One version of “My Favorite Things” has charted on the Hot 100: by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, a No. 45 hit in January 1969.

‘7’ @ 1: The numeral 7 appears in a Hot 100 No. 1 for the second time, after (technically) Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind 1997″/”Something About the Way You Look Tonight” (14 weeks at No. 1, 1997-98). As for songs featuring “7” with no accompanying numbers in their titles, Grande’s one-ups the previous top-peaking such hit, Lukas Graham’s “7 Years,” which reached No. 2 in April 2016.

Notably, “7” by Prince and The New Power Generation peaked at (where else?) No. 7 in 1993.

Lords of the ‘Ring’s: Plus, Grande tallies the fourth Hot 100 No. 1 with “ring” in its title. It follows Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” (four weeks at No. 1, 2008-09); Anita Ward’s “Ring My Bell” (two, 1979); and Gary Lewis and The Playboys’ “This Diamond Ring” (two, 1965).

(Research assistance on the above stats from readers Jake Rivera and Pablo Nelson, the latter of whom adds that Prince’s “7” hit No. 61 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, which, like its No. 7 Hot 100 peak, is also fitting, “because 6+1 = 7.”)

“Rings” dethrones Halsey’s “Without Me” after two nonconsecutive weeks atop the Hot 100. The song drops to No. 2 on the Hot 100, although it takes over at No. 1 on the Pop Songs radio airplay chart. It keeps at No. 2 on Radio Songs (109.7 million, up 3 percent) and slides 2-3 on both Streaming Songs (41.5 million, down 12 percent) and Digital Song Sales (29,000, down 30 percent).

Post Malone and Swae Lee’s “Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)” slips 2-3 on the Hot 100, after leading the Jan. 19-dated chart. The duet spends a fourth week at No. 1 on both Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs.

Grande’s “Next” rebounds 5-4 on the Hot 100 and Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode,” which led the Hot 100 dated Dec. 8, falls 3-5. Notably, the entire top five songs on the Hot 100 have all hit No. 1, marking the first such sweep in the bracket (of then-present or past No. 1s) since July 1, 2017.

Panic! at the Disco’s “High Hopes” retreats to No. 6 from its No. 4 Hot 100 peak, as it tops Hot Rock Songs for a 13th week and Radio Songs for a 10th frame (122.9 million, down 3 percent).

3LAU is starting 2019 off with some feels.

0

3LAU (real name Justin Blau) is coming off an eventful year. After the release of his album, Ultraviolet, and the debut of his very own crypto-fueled music gathering, Our Music Festival, the Las Vegas native has been on a steady upward trajectory.

To start 2019 off right, Blau has announced his latest track, “Would You Understand” featuring Carly Paige. He teamed up with Paige’s enchanting vocals previously on “Touch,” which hit #1 on iTunes’ Electronic Chart.

The track has a poppy topline complimented by a nostalgic sound. The repetitive chord progression and complex percussion in the second half of the verse are quite vibey. The next section is a tad more groovy with tighter percussion and rhythms. This downtempo track is hard not to bob your head to. It’s the perfect blend of heartwarming tones and cry-dance beats.

Blau garnered attention in the industry back in 2011 with “Girls Who Save the World” and “All Night Long.” Since then, he’s created his own non-profit record label, BLUME. Their mission is to unite dance music listeners worldwide around philanthropic causes, raising thousands of dollars for community building charities. So far they have raised $200,000.

“THRILLER” DE MICHAEL JACKSON VUELVE A LISTAS USA POR HALLOWEEN

A nadie le debe extrañar que el popular clásico de terror de Michael Jackson, “Thriller”,haya regresado al Billboard Hot 100 en el nº 31, gracias a las ganancias obtenidas el pasado Halloween.

Según Nielsen Music, “Thriller” se ha vuelto a meter en la lista con 15.000 descargas vendidas, con un incremento de venta del 189% en comparación con la semana anterior, y 15.2 millones de streamings en Estados Unidos, lo que significa un aumento del 198% en la semana que terminó justo el 1 de noviembre. La canción también ha vuelto a las listas de ventas de canciones digitales y a las listas de streaming en los números 11 y 30, respectivamente.Originalmente, en 1984, “Thriller” alcanzó el puesto número 4 en el Hot 100 y volvió a estar presente en esa lista otras tres veces en esa década. Con su nuevo reingreso, el tema alcanza su punto más alto desde el 7 de abril de 1984, cuando se ubicó en el Nº 23.

No es necesario que una canción sea nueva para ser elegible para el Hot 100, aunque la lista suele clasificar, casi exclusivamente, los éxitos actuales a través de una combinación de datos de streaming, airplay (radio, tv) y ventas generales. Las canciones fuera de ciclo de lanzamiento actual pueden volver a la lista si se registran ganancias notables.

Además, el LP “Thriller” ha obtenido el honor de “Greatest Gainer” en la lista de álbumes de Billboard 200, ya que ha subido del nº 102 al nº 42, también gracias a las ganancias generadas por Halloween.

Resultado de imagen de west side story the sound of music

En los 62 años de historia de Billboard 200, solo la banda sonora de “West Side Story” ha pasado más semanas en el número 1 (54 semanas) que “Thriller”. El LP de Jackson se ubica en el tercer lugar de los álbumes Billboard más grandes de todos los tiempos sólo por detrás de “21”de Adele y la banda sonora “The Sound of Music” (“Sonrisas y Lágrimas”).

15 of the Most Viewed YouTube Videos of all Time

0

We don’t talk much about music videos here at The Influencer Marketing Hub. Let’s be honest – they don’t provide much opportunity for influencer marketing unless you have sufficiently deep pockets to pay celebrity prices. Yet you can’t ignore the fact that many people love music videos.

YouTube was created in 2005, with the first video – Me at the Zoo – being uploaded on 23 April 2005. Since then, 1.3 billion people have set up YouTube accounts. In 2018, people watch nearly 5 billion videos each day. People upload 300 hours of video to the site every minute.

According to 2016 research undertaken by Pexeso, music only accounts for 4.3% of YouTube’s content. Yet it makes 11% of the views. Clearly, an awful lot of people watch a comparatively small number of music videos. It should be no surprise, therefore, that the most watched videos of all time on YouTube are predominantly music videos.

Most subscribed channels on the other hand are predominantly gaming channels.

This post looks at the 15 most viewed YouTube videos of all time. 14 of these videos are music videos. If we were to widen our scope to cover the top 100 YouTube videos, you would find that 95 are music videos. And none of the remaining five come from famous YouTubers, such as PewDiePie.

If you’r einterested to see how much these YouTubers Earn you can have a look at our YouTube Earnings Estimator 

The best-known influencers certainly have popular channels. But most gained their fame by having many people watching a broad range of videos. None of these genuine influencers have one-off videos with world-shattering viewing figures. PewDiePie’s most popular video (Jabba the Hutt) has about 4.4 million views. In comparison, Adele’s Hello (#15 on this list) has had nearly 2.2 billion views.


15 of the Most Viewed YouTube Videos of all Time:


1. Despacito – Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee

Despacito’s rise to the top of this list in 2017, demonstrates two essential points about YouTube. Firstly, it shows that YouTube’s popularity is forever increasing. There was a time when nobody thought that anybody would overtake Gangnam Style.

It also demonstrates how YouTube is now a global phenomenon. Despacito, which is Spanish for “Slowly,” is sung in Spanish by Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi and also features Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee. The music video shows both artists performing the song in La Perla neighborhood of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and the local bar La Factoría.

The song topped the charts of 47 countries and entered the Top 10 in ten others. It was the first song to top the Billboard 100 in Spanish in 20 years.

Interestingly, Justin Bieber released a remix version a few months later, where he sang some lines in English. While this probably helped the original’s YouTube performance, it didn’t overtake it or enter the YouTube Most Viewed charts.

Despacito became the first video on YouTube to achieve the milestones of both three and four billion views. It overtook See You Again to take YouTube’s All-time Number 1 spot in August 2017.


2. See You Again – Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth

See You Again held YouTube’s Number One position from July 10 to August 4, 2017, and was the video that finally broke “Gangnam Style’s” hold on the top rank. It was, of course, only 25 days, until Despacito made its charge and overtook See You Again.

The main reason for See You Again’s success was that it was commissioned as the theme for the movie, “Furious 7”. It was written as a tribute to fan-favorite, the late actor Paul Walker.

It is both Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s most successful track to date. The song spent 12 weeks at the top of the US Billboard 100 and reached Number One in a number of other countries.

It also held the record for the most streamed track in a single day on Spotify in the US, as well as records for most streams in a  week worldwide and in the UK.

Overall, See You Again was the best selling song in the world in 2015.


3. Shape of You – Ed  Sheeran

Ed Sheeran had a hugely successful 2017. No matter where you went, there always seemed to be an Ed Sheeran song playing. He even performed a cameo role in an episode of “Game of Thrones.”

He released Shape of You as a digital download on 6 January 2017. He also included it as part of his third studio album.

The song made it to Number 1 on the singles charts of 44 countries. It topped the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 Singles of 2017. It was nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.

Ed Sheeran released a lyric video for the song on his channel. People have viewed that version over 750 million times to date. On 30 January 2017, the official video was uploaded to YouTube. The video became one of the fastest videos to reach 1 billion views on YouTube. It achieved this milestone on 8 May 2017, just 97 days after its release.


4. Gangnam Style – Psy

It would be fair to say that Gangnam Style was an unexpected mega-hit, that set records on YouTube, that some people believed would never be bettered.

The video shows Psy poking fun at the style of Seoul’s Gangnam-gu. This is claimed to be, “a flashy district with high rents, high expectations and a focus on the high-status lifestyle.”

Psy’s official YouTube account uploaded the video on July 15, 2012. On November 24th that year, Gangnam Style overtook Justin Bieber’s then-record of 803,700,000 views to take the coveted Number 1 spot on YouTube. It stayed in that position for an incredible 1,689 days.

Gangnam Style didn’t take long to take the accolade of being the first video to reach 1 billion views on YouTube, receiving that honor in December 2012. It reached 2 billion views in June 2014, and 3 billion in January 2018.

The video holds a few other YouTube records. It was the most rated video until February 2017, and most liked video until August 2016. Until Adele’s Hello passed it on January 18, 2016, it held the record for the fastest video to reach 1 billion views. It still holds the record for being the most discussed video.


5. Masha and the Bear: Recipe for Disaster – Get Movies

This is by far the most unusual video on this list. It is not a music video. It is not an official video (although official copies of this episode do exist on YouTube). And it is in Russian.

This particular video is technically called Маша и Медведь (Masha and The Bear) – Маша плюс каша, as it is a Russian version.

Masha and the Bear is a Russian animated television series, loosely based on an oral children’s folk story. It is a Russian children’s television series, of four series (to date) consisting of 68 episodes. Some episodes of the English-language version are available on Netflix.

All of the episodes have been uploaded to YouTube over time, and three of them have exceeded 1 billion views. There is an official YouTube channel – MashaMedvedTV.

It is thought that one of the reasons for the show’s popularity is that Masha is dressed in a folk costume with a headscarf. Her legs are covered. This has makes the show acceptable to Muslim audiences, including in populous countries, such as Indonesia.

This particular episode, “Recipe for Disaster,” was originally episode number 17. It is episode 7.1 on Netflix (which has combines several of the short Masha and the Bear episodes together).


6. UpTown Funk – Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars

UpTown Funk was recorded by British record producer, Mark Ronson, along with American singer/songwriter, Bruno Mars. It was released as a single on 10 November 2014.

It spent 14 consecutive weeks at Number 1 on the US Billboard 100, and also reached Number 1 in the charts in several other countries.

UpTown Funk became the second best-selling single of 2015. It won two Grammy Awards, including the record of the Year.

The music video was released a week after the single – 17 November 2014. It shows Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson, and the Hooligans walking around cities, kitted out in brightly colored suits and chains. It was filmed in a range of cities where Bruno Mars was touring.

The video was almost as popular as the song, gathering more than 2.8 billion views to date.


7. Sorry – Justin Bieber

It should surprise nobody that Justin Bieber has a video on YouTube’s Top 10. He is one of the most visible symbols of the YouTube generation. It is perhaps surprising that he cannot claim more of the videos in this top group, although he does have videos of his songs in positions 23 and 24.

Sorry comes from Justin Bieber’s fourth studio album, “Purpose.” It was released on October 23, 2015. The song topped the charts of 13 countries, including seven weeks in the top spot in Bieber’s native Canada. Globally, people bought more than 10 million copies of the song in 2016.

Unusually, they made the dance video of the song in New Zealand, featuring New Zealand dancers – the ReQuest Dance Crew, and New Zealand choreographer, Parris Goebel. Although this was originally just intended to be a lyric video, it ended up as the main one. It became the fifth fastest YouTube video to reach 1 billion views, and the fourth fasted to reach 2 billion views.


8. Sugar – Maroon 5

Sugar was recorded by Maroon 5 for their fifth studio album, “V.” It was released as a single on January 13, 2015.

It peaked at Number 2 on the US Billboard 100.

The band worked with film director, David Dobkin on the music video. He had previously directed the movie “Wedding Crashers,” and used that as inspiration for this video.

In the video, Maroon 5 crashes weddings across Los Angeles. This is not staged. Maroon 5 has genuinely crashed the weddings shown in the video. In reality, each groom was given some notice and agreed to let an unnamed, but famous band play at their wedding, but nobody else connected with the marriages had advance notice. It must have been a shock to the brides to find Adam Levine serenading them at their weddings.

The production team worked with wedding planners in Los Angeles to find suitable weddings for the video.

The band found it a fantastic experience. They were nervous that they would take attention away from people’s big days. Some of the grooms got cold feet and had to be talked into allowing the activity take place.

Everybody loved the surprise, however. Adam Levine stated, “It was an out of body experience. I had no idea I would be affected by the overwhelming reactions we received from the couples and guests.”


9. Shake It Off – Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift recorded Shake it Off as the lead single for her fifth album, “1989”. The song premiered on a Yahoo! Live stream on August 18, 2014. The studio released the video on YouTube and made the song available for digital download on the same day.

Shake it Off is Taylor Swift’s most successful Billboard Hot 100 song to date. It stayed in the chart for 50 consecutive weeks.

Mark Romanek directed the video, and it features dances choreographed by Tyce Diorio. It incorporates dancing in the styles of hip-hop, lyrical, ballet, jazz, and cheerleader – even “twerking.”

If you exclude the cartoon character of Masha, this video holds the record for the most views of a video by a female artist.


10. Bailando – Enrique Iglesias ft. Descemer Bueno and Gente De Zona

Bailando is another music video that highlights the international appeal of YouTube.

Spanish singer, Enrique Iglesias, recorded Bailando for his tenth studio album, “Sex and Love” in 2014.

He recorded several versions of the song. The original Spanish version also included vocals by Cubans, Descemer Bueno, and Gente de Zona. A Spanglish version features vocals by Jamaican singer Sean Paul. Enrique Iglesias also recorded two versions in Portuguese (with different people doing the additional vocals) for different markets.

The original Spanish version acts as the theme song for the soap opera Reina de Corazones.

They recorded four music videos– one for each version of the song. They filmed the videos for the Spanish and Spanglish version of the song in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

The Spanish version has proven particularly popular, having been viewed more than 2.4 million times. People have also watched the Spanglish version 250 million times.


11. Roar – Katy Perry

Who hasn’t seen the Katy Perry video for Roar, with Katy in her jungle, populated with wild animals?

She released Roar as the lead single for her 2013 album, “Prism” The lyrics focus on standing up for yourself and self-empowerment. The song was a huge success. It was certified as Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), making her the first artist to have three Diamond Awards.

The video tells a (fictional) story of Katy Perry adapting to life in the jungle after surviving a plane crash. She even tames a tiger. It was filmed at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden.

When Roar reached 1 billion video views on YouTube, in July 2015, Katy Perry became the first artist to have two music videos exceed that milestone.


12. Lean On – Major Lazer and DJ Snake ft. MØ

Lean On comes from Major Lazer’s third album. “Peace is the Mission.” It is a house ballad.

In became the most streamed song of all time on Spotify in November 2015, although Drake’s One Dance overtook it the following year.

The music video for Lean On was directed by Tim Erem and filmed in India. It shows a sequence of Major Lazer, MØ and DJ Snake performing dance sequences.


13. Hello – Adele

English singer, Adele, released Hello in October 2015 as the lead single from her third album, “25”.

It was successful in many countries, reaching the top position across the world, including in both the UK and USA.

The music video, which stars Adele and Tristan Wilds, was directed by Xavier Dolan. It broke the record for the shortest time to reach 1 billion views on YouTube – 88 days. It currently has over 12 million likes, making it the fifth most liked video on YouTube.


14. Dark Horse – Katy Perry ft. Juicy J

Not to be outdone by Taylor Swift, Katy Perry also features two videos in this list of the 15 most viewed YouTube videos of all time.

Katy recorded Dark Horse with rapper Juicy J, releasing the song in September 2013.

It combines the genres of trap and hip-hop.

Pepsi used the song in a promotion. Fans could vote on Twitter whether they wanted this song or Walking on Air to be released as the first single from the album, “Prism.”

Dark Horse sold 13.2 million units and was the second-best selling song of 2014.

The video wasn’t released until February 2014. It has an Egyptian setting, where Katy plays “Katy Patra” – her version of the Egyptian queen, Cleopatra.

Dark Horse was the first video from a female artist to receive 1 billion views on YouTube.


15. Blank Space – Taylor Swift

Blank Space is Taylor Swift’s second entry on this list. It comes from her fifth studio album, “1989” (as does Shake it Off).

The song was released in November 2014, and within three weeks it topped the US Billboard Hot 100, knocking Shake it Off from that position. Taylor Swift became the first woman in the chart’s history to succeed herself at the top.

Joseph Kahn was asked to direct the video. Taylor Swift liked the idea of portraying herself as a crazy villain in the video. It was partly inspired by “A Clockwork Orange” and constant tabloid gossip about Taylor Swift’s relationships.

Travis Scott y Drake perpetran en ‘Sicko Mode’ una de las idas de olla visuales del año

0

‘Sicko Mode’ es probablemente uno de los singles del año, quizá en todo el mundo y con total seguridad en Estados Unidos, donde sus dos intérpretes principales son enormemente populares. Hablamos, claro, de Drake y Travis Scott, que incluye este tema en ‘Astroworld’, el álbum que publicaba el pasado mes de agosto y que es uno de los discos de rap más importantes de 2018, alcanzando el número 1 directo de Billboard Hot 100 en su semana de lanzamiento y siendo ya certificado disco de platino al superar el millón de unidades vendidas entre formato físico, digital y el equivalente en streaming.

Aunque a este tema aún le queda mucho cacao que tomar hasta alcanzar los más de 430 millones de streamings de ‘Butterfly Effect’, single principal del disco estrenado a finales de 2017, es muy posible que se le acerque gracias al espaldarazo que vivirá con el lanzamiento de su vídeo oficial este fin de semana. Sobre todo porque se trata de una de las mayores idas de olla visuales que podremos ver en Youtube a lo largo de este curso. Es obra de Dave Meyers que, como demostrara con sus últimos trabajos para Ariana Grande y, algo más atrás, en piezas para Kendrick Lamar, no se pone límites a la hora de dar rienda suelta a las ideas más locas.

En este caso, sumerge a los propios Drake y Scott en un mundo que, aunque se parece al real, está completamente distorsionado, como si esa bocaza en la cabeza gigante de Travis que también vemos en la polémica portada de ‘Astroworld’ fuera un portal a una realidad paralela. Una en la que una luna enorme provoca un eclipse que da rienda suelta a imágenes delirantes y repletas de exceso, desde graffitis parlantes a un Scott montando a caballo por el barrio, pasando por una bailarina de twerk en los párpados de Drake o chocantes efectos que hacen aumentar y reducir su tamaño a los raperos o simular que la tierra se inclina.
