YouTube has always offered an annual list of the top trending videos to accompany the broader compilation featuring the platform’s biggest personalities and trends. The former is easier to compile and follows one from the Google Play Store earlier this week for the best Android apps and games.
The US results, along with top creators, are below. Meanwhile, there’s a separate list for the top YouTube Shorts creators (again in the US).
Rounding out everything is YouTube’s (US) Top Music Videos and Ads of 2021, though some are no longer officially available.
