Have you watched Malaysia’s most popular YouTube videos of 2020?

YouTube content is getting more and more diverse—as niche content creators with different styles and topics can cater to different people (personally, I’m super into movie analyses and people making vegan meat). In Malaysia, this year’s top trending videos reflect our unique and personal interests, especially as we adapt to the unforeseen challenges of 2020.

YouTube released a list of Malaysia’s top ten trending videos, top music videos, top Malaysian creators and the ten breakout creators in the country:
