Latin pop dominates YouTube's most watched videos of the year so far.

YouTube has revealed its most-viewed music videos of 2019 so far - and Latin pop makes up half of the Top 10. 

YouTube reaches almost 2 billion people around the world every month, and it seems most of its users can't get enough of Spanish-language songs. 

The most watched music video of the year to date is Daddy Yankee's Con Calma, with 1.16 billion views so far. The clip was released in January 2019, while a remix of the song with Katy Perry has notched up a further 59 million plays.  

Ariana Grande's 7 Rings, which places fifth with 484 million views, is the only song performed entirely in English. 

Spanish singer Rosalia claims the most watched video by a female artist - her song Con Altura ft. J Balvin places fourth overall with 499 million views. 

Elsewhere, K-Pop is represented in the list by Blackpink's Kill This Love and BTS' collaboration with Halsey Boy With Luv.
