It’s another installment of the Top 100 Most Subscribed YouTube Channels Worldwide and a British pop star is still in the top spot.

Chart Toppers

Ed Sheeran is at the top of the charts for the third month in a row. The home of the 26-year-old English singer-songwriter’s online video music library received several new additions in March, all of which helped Sheeran’s channel hold onto its first-place position and add more than 2 million subscribers in the month.

In a distant second place is still Canal KondZilla. The YouTube outpost for renowned Brazilian music video producer, director, and screenwriter Konrad Cunha Dantas (aka KondZilla) tacked on more than 1.3 million new subscribers in the 31 days of March. Next up in the #3 spot is T-Series. The channel that claims its part of the largest media and entertainment entity in India shot up 29% in its subscriber acquisition rate, ending the month with nearly 1.2 million new subs.

In fourth place is whinderssonnunes. The self-described (and roughly translated) “Boy from Piauí who makes videos without grace” who uploads a steady supply of weekly-or-so comedic vlogs to YouTube hopped up 18% to close out March with 1 million new subscribers. And rounding out the Top 5 is WorkpointOfficial. The YouTube channel for Thai media company Workpoint Entertainment received nearly 870,000 new subscribers on the month.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our our Top Gainers this month goes to Casey Neistat.

The accomplished multi-hyphenate whose CV includes an HBO show, an incredibly popular online video presence that began with well-shot-and-conceived viral video-y shorts back in 2010, a startup sold to CNN, and a current love affair with Samsung had a great month on the world’s largest video sharing site thanks in large part to two uploads.

First, there was the “Do What You Can’tSamsung-spot-cum-ode-to-YouTube that dropped on March 7, 2017. Then there was Neistat’s announcement on March 27 that he was bringing back his vlog. Both videos easily racked up a view counts in the multimillions and helped to attract new subscribers to Neistat’s channel to the tune of a 158% month-over-month increase in its subscriber acquisition rate, more than 313,000 new subs on the month, and the #85 spot on the worldwide chart.
