It’s another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and it’s tough to shake an overseas music and movie magnate from the top spot.
T-Series is in first place on the worldwide chart for the eighth week in a row. The largest music label and movie studio in India (or so it claims) jumped up 7% in its weekly YouTube view count to top out at more than 152.9 million views on the week. In second place is another overseas music conglomerate. The Turkish netd müzik‘s YouTube destination climbed 6% to end the week with over 127.1 million views.
In third place is Ryan ToysReview. Four-year-old Ryan’s collection of unboxing videos and playtime footage dipped 3% to take home more than 116.7 million views in the week. Next up in the #4 spot is Chainsmokers. The bubblegum pop DJ duo grew its weekly view count by 18% to top out at over 98.2 million views on the week.
And rounding out the Top 5 is LittleBabyBum. The place for every English-speaking toddler’s favorite tunes closed out the week up 4% and above 90.8 million views.
One of our Top Gainers this week is The Weeknd.
Canadian singer-songwriter and record producer Abél Makkonen Tesfaye (aka The Weeknd) had a great week on YouTube thanks to his first new music video release in the past 10 months. “Starboy ft. Daft Punk” dropped on September 28, 2016 and quickly racked up an eight-figure view count. Add that to the international star’s online video catalog and his channel received a 308% week-over-week increase in views, just about 57.7 million views on the week, and the #29 spot on the worldwide chart.
The top 50 most viewed YouTube channels worldwide this week amassed a total of 3,315,285,034 views. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:
VEVO: 9 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Chainsmokers the highest-ranked channel of the network at #4.
