In the latest edition of our US-only Tubefilter top 50, there was only one newcomer to the top five, but an historic concert left an imprint further down the list. Meanwhile, the chart is still topped by a major producer of content for children, and it doesn’t seem as if it will relinquish that hold anytime soon.
Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes crossed the 900 million view threshold this week, picking up 905.6 million hits across a span of just seven days. The family-friendly destination has been the most-viewed American YouTube channel throughout the entire month of April, and no other contender is particularly close to ending that run of dominance. Kids Diana Show, the #2 finisher in this week’s US chart, received 583.5 million views, less than two-thirds of Cocomelon’s seven-day total.
Last week’s starred-and-striped runner-up, Like Nastya, dropped to #3; the vlog, which is aimed at young children, scored 574.9 million views over the measured period. Vlad and Niki, which was outside of the top five last week, moved up to #4 for the final chart of April. Its 332.8 million views were enough to create a superfecta of all-ages content in our latest ranking. Rounding out this week’s top five was the official hub of the WWE, which received 318.7 million views on its wrestling-adjacent content.
Travis Scott‘s Fortnite concert was a big deal. The Texan rapper’s all-digital event, housed within the hugely-popular battle royale video game, shattered the record for the most concurrent viewers on a live stream, counting 12.3 million of them. The ripple effect of that concert extended outside of Fortnite, too. “THE SCOTTS,” a song Scott premiered during his remote concert, set records on Spotify and was a big deal on YouTube, too. Four videos related to the track, which features guest artist Kid Cudi (real name Scott Mescuti, hence the song’s title), have allowed Scott’s official YouTube home to make an upward move in our hierarchy of American channels.
In total, Scott more than tripled his weekly YouTube viewership, ending up with 88 million views over seven days. That’s good for 20th-best in our US-only chart. The four music videos related to “THE SCOTTS” include a lyric video, an audio-only offering, and some sort of animated concert film, but the big draw has been the track’s official music video, which was filmed in a machinima style inside of Fortnite.
