It’s certainly been a lucrative year for TikTok creators, with the video-sharing app soaring to the height of popularity, bringing countless trends and memes along with it. But who has come out on top of the list for the most views at the end of this year?

Love it or hate it, TikTok has become an absolute staple of internet culture over the past year, filling the gap of hilarious short-form content that Vine left when it was shut down.

It’s hard to believe that at the start of this year we didn’t have the WAP dance, viral skateboarder Doggface, and hundreds of other viral trends and sounds that have flooded our FYP this year.

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio also became the first TikTok account to hit 100 million followers back in November, and she’s not the only big name to rise to the top this year.

Charli and Dixie have seen unrivaled success on TikTok.

Stars like Addison Rae, Noah Beck, and Dixie D’Amelio have all found themselves racking up a huge amount of likes and views.

But how many views have these stars and other talented creators on the platform been able to accumulate over time, and who sits in the top spot? With data from Retroplay, these are the top 10 most viewed TikTok creators of 2020.

10 – Josh Richards: 5.7B views

9 – Spencer X: 7.3B views

8 – Michael Le (JustMaiko): 7.6B views

7 – Noah Beck: 7.7B views

6 – Bella Poarch: 7.8B views

These five creators have certainly been huge names this year. Notably, Bella Poarch makes the list, who went viral for her adorable head-shaking dance videos, and secured one of the most popular videos of the year with her ‘M to the B’ recreation.

This is alongside Sway House boys Josh Richards and Noah Beck, musician Spencer X, and viral dance star JustMaiko. But who are the top five?

5 – Dixie D’Amelio: 8.5B views

Of course, coming in at fifth place is one of the ever popular D’Amelio sisters. Dixie has had a cracking year from collaborating with stars like Liam Payne and Wiz Khalifa on her music, to launching her own podcast with younger sister Charli. Dixie has done it all.

Riyaz has become hugely popular on TikTok year, as one of India’s youngest fashion influencers. He actually hasn’t posted on TikTok itself since June after India suddenly banned the Bytedance owned app, but he still remains active on Instagram.

2 – Addison Rae: 28.8B

In one of the top spots is naturally Addison Rae, who saw her following boom this year. Her iconic dance content has remained the same, but outside the platform, she’s gone on to do some huge things, including filming for a remake of the movie ‘She’s All That.’

Addison has proven to be one of 2020’s most successful TikTokers.

1 – Charli D’Amelio: 51.2B

It likely doesn’t come as a surprise for many that Charli D’Amelio received the most total views on TikTok, but it doesn’t make it any less incredible. Reaching 100 million followers back in November cemented her firmly as TikTok queen, and the proof is certainly in the pudding when looking at her crazy view count.

And that’s the top ten TikTokers with the most views at the end of 2020. Perhaps there were some faces that may have come as a surprise, but the fan favorites still remain at the top of the list out of TikTok’s huge user base.


HAchubby reveals HAchuMart convenience store struggles after Twitch success

Korean Twitch star HAchubby won people’s hearts over with her shifts at a convenience store. Now, she owns her very own HAchuMart. However, it didn’t come without its fair share of challenges, which she opened up about on February 24.

From an Emart to HAchuMart, popular Korean Twitch streamer HAchubby has carved out a niche with her content following her mundane life working at a convenience store.

After quitting her old job due to concerns about privacy, she decided to become her own boss by opening up her own convenience store in Busan, South Korea. It was a spur of the moment decision, but once her mind was made, she was resolved to do it for her viewers.

HAchubby opened her own convenience store in January 2021.

I lost a big part of my stream and my life. And my viewers lost something they enjoyed to watch every weekend. I didn’t really want to quit this job because it kept me connected to the real world,” she said in a February 24 video, talking about leaving her previous job.

“So I promised the viewers, don’t worry, we will have our own convenience store next year. I was crazy. I promised that I didn’t think well enough. I didn’t think about costs, staff, or location. I just said I was going to do it.”

Now, HAchuMart is open and free for anyone to visit ⁠— well, if you can make it to South Korea. The cute little market features a bunch of HAchubby’s favorite items. However, it was truly a community endeavor, with her stream helping her out along the way.

“Since then everyone was looking forward to it, a lot of people sent me cheering messages. Some viewers even supported me with donations,” she said.

“I asked my viewers to help me [design the store]. A lot of them shared their ideas, gave feedback, and worked on creative new designs. I made a lot of designs with my viewers, including the logo, uniform, and even the ice cream box. I’m thankful to everyone who helped me make it. I don’t think I’d be able to make it on my own.”

Between trying to stick to a 2020 deadline, dealing with lockdowns, and not even having an ounce of business experience, it was a tough time for HAchubby. But now, her dreams have been realized, and she’s so happy for all the support from friends and family along the way.

“This was my first business ever, and I thought it would be hard for me to do it. I still can’t believe how many people decided to help. It was a miracle. It was very busy, but I was lucky enough to have family and friends to help me.

“I really achieved what I had dreamed of. This is not just another convenience store. HAchuMart is the result of many people working together to make a dream come true.

“It all started with a girl streaming her part-time job, and with the support of the viewers, family, and friends, this girl now has her own convenience store.”
