It’s another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and for the first time in over half a year a new channel is in the top spot.

Chart Toppers

T-Series‘ unprecedented 27-week stint as the #1 most viewed YouTube channel in the world has come to an end. Ed Sheeran has taken its place.

The British singer-songwriter’s online video destination has seen a massive uptick in activity over the past few weeks thanks to a cavalcade of uploads form his latest studio album ÷. Immediately before Sheeran’s junior effort dropped on March 3, 2017, he posted a small handful of videos to his channel for the first time in over a year’s time. Lyric videos and official music videos for tracks like “Shape of You” racked up nine-figure view counts and continue to get plays. But what pushed Sheeran’s YouTube numbers up sky high in the past seven days was the music video release of all 14 songs from his latest album. The tracks got over 20 million views in their first 24 hours alone. Couple that the apparent heartthrob‘s library and you get a 94% week-over-week increase in views, more than 291.2 million views on the week, and the #1 spot on the worldwide chart.

That pushed T-Series down to the #2 spot. The YouTube home of the self-proclaimed largest music label and movie studio in India closed out the week with just about 272.8 million views. Next up in third place is Ryan ToysReviews. The five-year-old’s seemingly perennially popular toy unboxing channel took home almost 196.7 million views in the week.  Still sitting happy at #4 is Canal KondZilla. Your YouTube destination for all things Brazilian pop jumped up 18% to top out at just about 164 million views.

And rounding out the Top 5, yet again, SET India. Sony Entertainment Television’s Indian iteration on YouTube shot up 32% to end the week with nearly 160.8 million views.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of the Top Gainers on the chart this week goes to the aforementioned Ed Sheeran.

As explained above, the 26-year-old is having an incredible YouTube run. Here’s “Perfect,” one of the 14 tracks he uploaded all at once on March 2, 2017 that’s already seeing eight-digit views.

Channel Distribution

The top 50 most viewed YouTube channels worldwide this week amassed a total of 4,905,809,864 views. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 10 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Chainsmokers the highest-ranked channel of the network at #9.
  • BroadbandTV, Studio71, WMG, XMediaDigital: 2 channels each in the Top 50, with BBTV’s Wave Music at #28, Studio71’s FamilyFunPack at #27, WMG’s Ed Sheeran at #1, and XMediaDigital’s mashamedvedtv at #24.

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