YouTube Charts Crown Latin Artists As Kings Of Summer 2017 Pop Sounds
As if the recent U.S. chart successes of songs like Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" and J Balvin & Willy William's "Mi Gente" weren't enough of an indication, YouTube's top 25 Song Of The Summer charts have overwhelmingly confirmed that Latin artists were the undisputed kings of the global pop sound of summer 2017.
The 'Songs Of The Summer' charts were compiled from songs released in the past year, and ranked by number of views gained both globally and in the U.S. between Memorial Day and Labor Day 2017 to determine which songs reign supreme over the metaphorical internet airwaves.
Despite musical entries from every corner of the globe, the international chart was dominated by Latin sounds, grabbing a whopping 16 of the 25 spots with artists like Shakira, Daddy Yankee, Maluma, and of course Luis Fonis. Puerto Rican trap and reggaeton singer Ozuna also grabbed four of the top global video slots on his own.
