Scroll down for the Tubefilter Chart.

It’s another installment of the Top 100 Most Subscribed YouTube Channels Worldwide and a twentysomething recording artist still occupies the #1 spot.

Chart Toppers

Goodbye, Adele. Hello, Justin Bieber.

Despite a 10% dip in Bieber’s YouTube channel’s month-over-month subscriber acquisition rate, the nearly 1.4 million new Beliebers the channel attracted was enough to give the 21-year-old pop star the #1 spot on the chart, continuing his current total YouTube domination. Adele’s more drastic 33% hit in her channel’s monthly subscriber acquisition rate caused her YouTube home to slide down to the #2 spot on the list, though it still said hello to more than 1.1 million new subs in December.

In the #3 spot is YouTube’s very own YouTube Spotlight channel. The 2015 iteration of YouTube Rewind no doubt attracted the majority of its nearly 815,000 new subscribers. Next up in fourth place is fernanfloo. The El Salvadorian has the honor of being the top gamer on the chart, having scored more than 768,000 new subscribers in the 31 days of the month.

And rounding out the Top 5 is Rclbeauty101. The YouTube home of Philadelphian beauty guru Rachel Levin ended the month up almost 720,000 new subscribers.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our our Top Gainers this month goes to Eva Marisol.

For the uninitiated, the aforementioned channel is the vlog channel of the 21-year-old beauty guru and YouTube force that is Eva Gutowski aka MyLifeAsEva. With more than 5.2 million subscribers on her main channel, Gutowski posted a number of videos to her secondary channel in late 2015. And a LOT of individuals subscribed so they could stay up to speed with her self-described “tags, vlogs, random stuff and other things.” Videos like ‘Girls Play Until Dawn On PS4‘ racked up solid six-figure view counts and contributed to a 2,803% month-over-month increase in Gutowski’s second channel’s subscriber acquisition rate, almost 324,000 new subscribers on the month, and the #48 spot on the worldwide chart.

Channel Distribution

The Top 100 Most Subscribed YouTube channels in the month amassed in aggregate a total of 37,734,828 new subscribers. Here’s a look at the distribution of a few of those channels broken down by the most-represented YouTube Multi-Channel Networks on the chart:
