J-Lo and Rebecca Black vides most watched on YouTube

Rebecca Black and Jennifer Lopez are the queens of YouTube with their videos being the most watched of the year.


The dance hit from Lopez's seventh and latest album Love?, notched up more than 453 million hits and became the most-watched music video from a major label, beating the likes of LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem and Bruno Mars's The Lazy Song, both of which scored 326 million and 249 million hits respectively.

The Cuban rapper Pitbull was also a big presence on the chart, who alongside his guest spot in On The Floor, had his own hits Give Me Everything at number five and Rain Over Me at number six (which featured Lopez's ex, Marc Anthony).

Rounding off the chart are Jessie J's Price Tag and Katie Perry, who held spots number nine and 10 with E.T. and Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F).


The 14-year-old Rebecca Black's Friday was crowned the most-watched viral video of the year (in a list excluding videos from major music labels). While the view counter on Black's video only points to over 12 million,  the video still topped the list because Black took down the video in June (where it already had more than 167 million) due to a copyright battle.

The new figure reflects the number of views since she reposted the song online on September 6, giving it over 180 million views in total, more than 100 million over the second place video Ultimate Dog Tease, a home video about a dog and his witty antics.
