Not only did that channel extend the lead it achieved a week ago, but it also found space for some of its sister channels in our all-American ranking. Read on to learn where all the contenders placed.
Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes got nearly twice as many views as any other U.S.-based channel this week. The California-based animation hub has put together a nice string of strong chart performances this spring, and its latest showing is no exception. The family-friendly channel got 595.1 million weekly views, which was good for a 21% week-over-week viewership increase. And there’s more Cocomelon news in the chart this week, so stay tuned for that.
LeoNata Family reached its highest-ever chart position this week, topping out at #2 in the U.S. Top 50. The YouTube Shorts channel specializes in micro-videos that are appropriate for all ages. That strategy seems to work better with each passing week. In our latest count, LeoNata got 390.9 million weekly views and improved its traffic by 31% week-over-week.
The channel that earned a couple #1 finishes last month, Like Nastya, has ended up in third place in the U.S. Top 50 for the second-straight week. The Floridian family vlog, which has Eastern European roots, appeals to young viewers the world over. 387.2 million weekly views may represent a down week for Nastya and her folks, but it’s still the sort of viewership most other channels can only dream about.
Similarly to Like Nastya, the fourth-place finisher in this week’s U.S. Top 50 is a channel that has a home in Florida and a Slavic origin story. Kids Diana Show, the home base of the titular eight-year-old Ukraine native, dropped two spots in our U.S. chart this week, but it still managed an impressive total of 368.6 million weekly views. Both Like Nastya and Kids Diana Show have about 96 million subscribers.
With 295.5 million weekly views, the YouTube Shorts channel SMOL rounds out this week’s U.S. top five. With its kid-friendly clips, SMOL has been able to appeal to a wide audience via YouTube’s TikTok competitor.
So you know how I said there would be more Cocomelon news later in this post? Well, brace yourself, because the Cocomelon spinoff channels are coming.
That’s right: The ubiquitous nursery rhyme channel has now spawned several offshoots, some of which are finding their own positions in our charts. Lellobee by Cocomelon only launched last December, but it already has more than 2.2 million subscribers and 685 million lifetime views.
Compared to Cocomelon, Lellobee is going for a more bucolic vibe. It describes its setting as a “city farm,” which allows it to portray either an urban or rural milieu as necessary. But don’t get it twisted — at the end of the day, Lellobee is quite similar to its parent channel. The most-watched video on Lellobee is a rendition of ‘Wheels on the Bus,’ which is also sung in a heavily-viewed Cocomelon clip.
As you might have guessed, kids these days just can’t get enough of Lellobee’s catchy ditties. The channel made its second appearance in our U.S. Top 50 by picking up 99.5 million weekly views. That was good for an 8% traffic bump since we released our previous chart. It won’t be long before Lellobee gets its billionth view, and if that’s not enough Cocomelon domination for you, the media entity has plenty of other channels that are getting millions of views each week.
This week, there are 31 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
