This Was the Biggest-Trending Music Video on YouTube This Year. No, Really.

Ever hear of The Mask Singer? It’s a strange singing competition in South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam and China.

The concept is simple: Singers compete while fully masked and in crazy costumes. Their identities are only revealed when they voted off the show.

This clip, “Until We Will Become Dust” by Oyster Masked, taken from the Thai edition, trended higher than any other video on the planet. With 183 million views, the clip has an unbelievable 94% thumbs-up rate.

What else trended super-high in 2017? Go here.
