weird-al-yankovic-youtube-views

In the absence of any new pop songs or viral video super hit, DisneyCollectorBR is back on the top of the charts this week. The online video collection of adults showcasing and playing with toys received a 3% bump in views to top out at more than 59.3 million views in the last seven days. Shakira dropped down to the #2 spot. The international pop star’s World Cup 2014 anthem, “La La La” isn’t getting the plays it was since the global soccer competition concluded. The singer’s channel ended the week down 15% with nearly 50.3 million views.

Enrique Iglesias is up next in third place. Despite no major releases since his mega hit “Bailando“, the Spanish singer-songwriter, actor, and record producer’s YouTube channel saw an 8% increase in views, topping out at more than 43.8 million views on the week. Katy Perry is once again in the #4 spot. Perry hasn’t had any major releases in the past several weeks either, but her online video catalog continues to get plays. The American pop star’s YouTube channel ended the week with almost 38.8 million views.

And rounding out the Top 5 is CollegeHumor. The YouTube outpost of the IAC-owned online comedy destination saw an impressive 63% uptick in views thanks to its exclusive release of one of the eight shiny new music videos from Weird al Yankovic. The parody specialist’s rendition of Lorde’s “Royals” quickly received an eight-figure view count and helped give CollegeHumor nearly 37.8 million views on the week.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to Weird Al Yankovic.

The comedic musician’s masterclass in online video distribution helped his own VEVO channel crack into the U.S. Top 50 for its first time in history. Four of Yankovic’s eight music videos from his album Mandatory Fun landed on his own YouTube channel, amassing more than 12 million views in aggregate in less than one week’s time. That helped to give the channel a very impressive 303% week-over-week increase in views to top out at more than 17.3 million views on the week and the #34 spot on the charts.

Channel Distribution

The top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 1,164,220,823 views. Here’s the distribution of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 17 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Shakira topping out at #2.
  • Fullscreen, Maker Studios: 3 channels each in the Top 50, with Fullscreen’s TheFineBros at #6 and Maker’s Epic Rap Battles of History at #10.
  • Collective Digital Studio, DEFY Media, Movieclips, WMG: 2 channels each the Top 50, with CDS’ Good Mythical Morning at #35, Defy’s Smosh at #14, Movieclips’ MovieclipsTrailers at #15, and WMG’s Jason Derulo at #16.
