Chart Toppers

After a brief one week stint in second place, DisneyCollectorBR is back in the #1 spot on the Top 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channels chart. The internet’s go-to destination for videos of adults playing with children’s toys witnessed a 3% uptick in views to top out at nearly 109.6 million of them. Taylor Swift isn’t too far behind in second place. The country-turned-pop-star’s release of “Style” helped her YouTube channel crack the nine-figure threshold, amassing almost 100.4 million views during the week.

BuzzFeed Videos is next up in third place. The flagship YouTube offshoot of the website famous for animated GIFs, lists, and actual news attracted just about 59.9 million views on the seven-day stretch. Up next in the #4 spot is PopularMMOs. The US-based gaming channel witnessed a 10% bump in views to score more than 59.6 million in the week. And rounding out the Top 5 is WWE Fan Nation. World Wrestling Entertainment’s home on YouTube ended the week just shy of 57.2 million views.

The video racked up a view count in the multimillions giving Team Coco’s channel a 30% week-over-week increase in views, more than 27.5 million views on the week, and the #38 spot in the U.S.
