Breaking news: T-Series is still popular, and though its ever-increasing YouTube view count may soon hit a plateau, that moment has not yet arrived.
T-Series is once again the number-one most-viewed channel in our weekly Tubefilter Charts. The Indian video hub didn’t generate quite as many headlines as it did last week, but it certainly reeled in just as many views as the past seven days, and then some. Powered by its 131 million subscribers, it received 829.8 million views over the most recent measured period. That’s about nine million more views than what it received last week, which would be an extraordinary increase for most YouTube channels, but for T-Series, it’s just a 1% jump.
Children’s animation studio Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes held onto the #2 position in our chart thanks to a 10% viewership jump to 664.9 million weekly views. Sony’s SET India destination surged up two spots to #3 thanks to a 24% viewership increase; its weekly total was 477.7 million views. Meanwhile, Kids Diana Show held onto its #4 spot for the second week in a row with a relatively constant view count of 447.1 million views.
Russian family vlog channel Like Nastya slid two spots to #5 and saw its viewership fall by 8%, though the 440 million weekly views it received are still nothing to scoff at.
Fresh off last month’s appearance during the Super Bowl halftime show, pop star Bad Bunny made a splash in our Tubefilter Charts as well. The Puerto Rican sensation’s latest Spanish-language music video, “Si Veo a Tu Mamá,” helped him surge into the top 10, landing at the #9 spot after ranking #36 last week. “Si Veo a Tu Mamá,” which features a dark intro that transitions into uplifting house party imagery, first hit YouTube on March 2nd and has since reeled in more than 25.4 million views. In total, the official Bad Bunny YouTube channel received 222.5 million views between March 1st and March 8th.
One of last week’s big gainers, Korean pop label Big Hit Entertainment, fell 17 spots this week, but the group that powered its initial surge, K-pop megastars BTS, helped another YouTube channel make a big upward climb. M2, a YouTube channel owned by Korean music video channel MNet, saw a 272% percent jump over the past seven days, claiming 113.5 million weekly views and moving from the 374th position in our charts up to 32nd. The most popular videos on the channel this week have been a series of recently-uploaded “FanCam” clips featuring BTS, many of which have crossed the seven-digit view mark.
