Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg‘s PewDiePie channel is not in its familiar position at the top of the charts this week thanks to an international pop star and an international sporting event.

Shakira‘s latest music video release of “La La La (Brazil 2014) ft. Carlinhos Brown” is a partnership between the singer and Activia to support the World Food Programme and its School Meals Initiative. It also features a handful of famous soccer stars and is part of FIFA’s 2014 Official World Cup Album. So, it’s no surprise the video’s racked up over 50 million views within its first week of release, contributing to more than 77.5 million total views on Shakira’s YouTube channel in the last seven days.

The aforementioned PewDiePie is in a very close second place. The 24-year-old Swedish gamer’s YouTube channel scored nearly 77.2 million views during the week. Up next in third is Katy Perry, whose “Birthday” continues to get plays on YouTube. The channel ended the week with nearly 50.4 million viewsDisneyCollectorBR is next up in the #4 spot. The longtime chart topper and online video destination for videos of adults playing with children’s toys ended the week with almost 49.5 million views.

And rounding out the Top 5 is The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. NBC’s flagship late night program attracted just about 49.1 million views on the week.

Top Gainers

The honor of our Top Gainer this week goes to Jimmy Kimmel Live.

ABC’s late night talk show released the seventh installment of its Celebrities Read Mean Tweets series, which quickly gained an eight-figure view count. The two-minute-and-47-second clip features Julia Roberts, Andy Garcia, Matthew McConaughey, Gary Oldman, Emma Stone, Sofia Vergara, and more and helped increase Kimmel’s view count by 1,193% over the week prior. The channel ended the week with more than 43 million views and at the #6 spot in the world.

All in all, the top 50 most viewed YouTube channels accounted for 1,344,143,134 views last week. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:
