The UK's Official most streamed videos

As the Official Singles Chart enters a new phase with the inclusion of video streams, OfficialCharts.com takes a look at the UK's most played videos of the streaming era.

As the Official Singles Chart enters a new phase with the inclusion of video streams, OfficialCharts.com takes a look at the UK's most played videos of the streaming era.

Taking in data since January 2014, the most streamed video is Ed Sheeran's Shape Of You, which logged 14 non-consecutive weeks at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart in 2017. Unsurprisingly, the visual - directed by Jason Koenig - also takes the title of the UK's most streamed video of 2017. 

The last half decade has seen some monumentally successful videos rack up millions of views in the UK. Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk - a seven-week Number 1 in 2014-2015 - takes second place behind Ed on the list, while Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's See You Again from the Fast & Furious 7 film is in third. 

The most recent video on the half decade list is Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee's Despacito ft. Justin Bieber. The Latin-pop crossover was the UK's Official song of summer 2017 after leading the singles chart for 11 weeks. 

Elsewhere, Ed Sheeran features again at 6 with 2014's Thinking Out Loud, Clean Bandit's Rockabye - 2016's Official Christmas Number 1 - places at 10, and viral sensation Psy is ninth with Gangnam Style - once the world's most watched music video.
