Non-music videos refers to music-related clips that are not commercial music videos backed by record labels.

Every year, YouTube recaps the highlights of the year with a Rewind video, which features the biggest moments and memes as presented by the most popular YouTube creators. The fact that it has over 2 million views is not that surprising really - the singer-songwriter added some exceptional soul and modern polish to a nostalgic favorite with the help of fellow homegrown musical talents.

Fortnite also struck it big in 2018, there's no doubt about that, and of course, YouTube Rewind hangs heavily off of the dick of that trend with the video being nearly 60% Fortnite-themed, from the battle bus to Fortnite Dances.

After that, it's all downhill. The decision is an especially strong stance, considering Kjellberg is the No. 1 YouTuber, with more than 74.8 million subscribers.

In 2017, Disney dropped YouTube vlogger Felix Kjellberg, known as "PewDiePie", from its collection of YouTube channels called Maker Studios. Alongside travel vlogging couple Titan & Gaius, cryptocurrency connoisseur Rock The Block Live, and Millennials of Singapore. This year's list skewed toward professional creators, with one YouTube original mixed in.

"It's how many reaction videos have been created". It's not all lollipops and rainbows, the video even jokes about "Let's read the comments" something people know to avoid when on YouTube.

"We were there watching the YouTube live stream - there was 11 million people concurrently watching the live stream - and then we went on to re-watching".

However, the platform is under fire for a yearly overview that many say doesn't represent the large portion of content and engagement on YouTube.

Ministry of amusing was the only Singaporean channel selected for You-Tube's global initiative, Creators for Change, which highlights creators who tackle tough issues in society and make a positive impact globally.

Though YouTube said its content creators "controlled" the direction of its roundup, the platform's community largely-and vehemently-disagrees.
