Sure MTV is great, but have kids heard of YouTube?

The 2010s were an amazing decade for music, and the first one to watch it entirely unfold on the video-sharing giant. We were just getting started in the aughts, and really hit hyper speed the past ten years. The first video with a billion views happened 8 years ago, and now there’s over 180 of them.

Countless clicks and endlessly updating view counts have led to a new metric of success, and we now know who will end the decade with the crown for the most watched music video on YouTube.

Take a look back at the top 10 from the 2010s. We dare you not to dance.
