Canadian singer Justin Bieber is the most watched artiste on YouTube this year. According to reports, Justin has defeated the likes of Eminem, Rihanna, Shakira and even Lady GaGa to bag the top spot on the most watched video website. This means an addition to the feathers on the cap of the 16 year old singer, who has climbed to the pinnacles of success within just two years of his career in pop-R&B singing.
Justin Bieber"s 'Baby" topped the list with 400 million views, but his 'Never Say Never", 'Never Let You Go" and 'Somebody to Love Remix" also featured on the list bagging the sixth, seventh and tenth positions respectively. It was in the year 2008 that the 16 year old singer started his tint on YouTube by initially sharing only home videos with his fans and followers on the microblogging site. Therefore it is an achievement in the life of Justin Bieber that he has graduated as one of the most watched artistes on YouTube today.
Not only Bieber but YouTube too is happy about the association that it shares with the star. According to reports, six out of the ten videos enlisted on the most watched list had been recorded as YouTube originals, and there has been a subsequent rise in the number of videos shared over YouTube in the past year.
