In February, Kylie Jenner surprised the world with “To Our Daughter,” an 11-minute film detailing her pregnancy and the birth of baby Stormi, which was watched over 53 million times on its way to becoming YouTube’s global #1 Top Trending Video of 2018. Will Smith vlogged all over the world. Oh, and he also jumped out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon on a dare. Rihanna started her own “Tutorial Tuesdays” makeup series.

India comedy sensation Amit Bhadana amassed an astounding 11 million subscribers in just one year and Lâm Chấn Khang’s two-hour musical comedy set in the criminal underworld amassed more than 60 million views.
