It’s another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and Indian music and entertainment is still very popular online.

Chart Toppers

T-Series is in first place on the worldwide chart for the twentieth week in a row. India’s self-proclaimed largest music label and movie studio hopped up 5% in views to close out the week with nearly 224.8 million. In a semi-distant second place is Ryan ToysReviews. Titular Ryan’s YouTube destination replete with videos of his toy unboxings and playtime footage shot up 10% in its week-over-week view count to take home over 182.2 million views on the week.

Next up in third place is Canal KondZilla. The online video home for all your poppy Brazilian music video needs rocketed up 49% to amass over 154.2 million views in the week. In the #4 spot is SET India. Sony Entertainment’s Indian iteration had a great seven days on YouTube, up 94% to close out the week with almost 131.4 million views.

And rounding out the Top 5, once again, is Shakira. The online video channel for the Colombian singer, dancer, songwriter, and record producer’s music video library scored just about 116.4 million views during the week.

Top Gainers

One of our Top Gainers this week is George Michael.

Every time a notable musician passes away, fans flock to his or her YouTube channel to find some solace in listening to some of that musician’s greatest hits. It happened when Leonard Cohen passed away and it’s happening in the immediate wake of George Michael’s passing, too.

The 53-year-old English singer, songwriter, and record producer died on Christmas Day 2016 in his Oxfordshire home. And in the few days since, individuals have headed to YouTube to listen to the songs that helped him sell more than 100 million records worldwide and receive eight number one U.S. Billboard hits. The channel saw a massive 2,042% week-over-week increase in views, to rack up more than 79.1 million views on the week and occupy the #24 spot on the worldwide chart.

Channel Distribution

The top 50 most viewed YouTube channels worldwide this week amassed a total of 4,348,986,270 views. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 8 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Shakira the highest-ranked channel of the network at #5.
  • Maker Studios, Studio71: 3 channels each in the Top 50, with Maker’s PewDiePie at #8 and Studio71’s Family Fun Pack at #17.
  • BroadbandTV, Machinima, ONErpm, XMediaDigital: 2 channels each in the Top 50, with BroadbandTV’s WorldStarHipHop at #39, Machinima’s Toy Pudding #35, ONErpm’s Canal KondZilla at #3, and XMediaDigital’s mashamedvedtv at #11.

And here’s the distribution of the this week’s Top 50 YouTube channels by country of origin:

  • United States: 22 channels in the Top 50.
  • India: 6 channels in the Top 50.
