DisneyCollectorBR is in first place on the U.S. charts for its unprecedented 13th week in a row. The premiere YouTube destination featuring videos of adults playing with children’s saw a 4% bump in views to end the week just shy of 88.7 million of them. Taylor Swift is up next in second place for her second week in a row. The international pop star’s channel is still getting plays weeks after the release of her latest album 1989 and amassed more than 81 million views in the last seven days.

YouTube is in third place. The world’s largest video sharing site’s very own Spotlight channel had a huge 409% week-over-week increase in views thanks to its epic Rewind video. All in all, the channel racked up more than 54.2 million views on the week. Ariana Grande is next up in the #4 spot. The second international pop star in the Top 5 doesn’t have a problem getting YouTube views and received more than 46.9 million of them during the week.

And rounding out the Top 5 is BuzzFeed Video. The premiere channel in BuzzFeed’s burgeoning YouTube empire ended the week with more than 45.4 million views.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers in the U.S. this week goes to Nicki Minaj.

The hip hop star’s music video release of Only featuring Drake, Lil Wayne, and Chris Brown was very popular with the Barbz. Minaj’s Vevo channel on YouTube witnessed a 68% week-over-week increase in views thanks to the decidedly BDSM-but-still-platonic release and topped out at more than 40.3 million views and the #11 spot in the U.S.

Channel Distribution
