Latin artists continue to dominate the music scene this year. In the recent weeks, Latinos have ranked among the top 10 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart and inspired English-speaking artists to break out their Spanish-speaking skills for high-profile collaborations. YouTube and Vevo announced on Dec. 5 and Dec. 6, respectively, that Latin performers are among the highest ranked on lists for the most music video views.

After calculating their most viewed music videos of the year globally, video streaming service Vevo found that Latin music reigned supreme, claiming 7 of the top 10 spots. YouTube reported similar results with Latinos snagging 6 of the 10 most-watched video spots in 2017. No surprise, Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito,” featuring Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber dominated at No. 1 on both streaming servers.

In August, the Spanish-language smash hit became the most-watched video on YouTube with 3 billion views. It has now garnered more than 4 billion.

Other Latin artists to rule the 2017 video scene include Shakira, Ricky Martin and J. Balvin.
