It remains a leading long-form hub surrounded by an increasing number of short-form channels, many of which improved their chart position this week.
As far as the U.S. Top 50 is concerned, Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes has completed a perfect January. The California-based firm known for its kid-friendly fare added another 528.9 million views to its lifetime total during the final week of the month. That feat raised Cocomelon’s viewership by 4% week-over-week while also pulling it closer to a round-number milestone. In next week’s U.S. Top 50, we will break down the 150 billion lifetime views Cocomelon has received thus far.
Compared to the channel ahead of it, the #2 finisher in the U.S. Top 50 is a relative newcomer. Mr DegrEE only broke out on YouTube after the introduction of Shorts, but the DIY hub has already established itself as one of the platform’s top draws. Its vertical videos led it to 458.6 million weekly views and its highest-ever ranking in our Tubefilter charts.
Kideo Games took third place in the Global Top 50. As its name implies, the short-form hub combines two topics that typically trend on YouTube Shorts. Its marriage of gaming and all-ages content has proven to be fruitful. By perfecting the balance pioneered by channels like LankyBox, Kideo Games has earned 327 million weekly views.
Kids Diana Show is right behind Kideo Games in fourth place. The Ukraine-bred, Florida-set kidfluencer channel recently took a back seat as Diana’s brother Roma started picking up steam. Now, as big sisters often do, Diana is reassuming her position atop the family food chain. She picked up 299.2 million weekly views to earn a high finish in the U.S. Top 50.
D Billions rounds out this week’s U.S. top five. The colorful, energetic children’s channel added 295.5 million views during the week that was.
If you’ve ever wondered whether twins actually have an innate sense of kinship with one another, the Anna Twinsies hub provides a fascinating case study. In the channel’s family-friendly videos, it takes two to tango, with lookalike siblings sharing the spotlight.
The “Anna” in the Anna Twinsies name is Anna Brown, who has shared her parenting journey in videos on TikTok and YouTube Shorts. Like many of her contemporaries in the YouTube community, Brown uses her channel to depict heartwarming snapshots of family life. A video of Brown’s twin children playing with each other has proved relatable enough to collect 100 million views.
But in spite of its name, Anna Twinsies offers more than just twin content. Brown actually has four children, and the non-twinned members of the family are eager for their turns on the screen — even if it means they have to confuse a local construction worker in the process.
With the whole Brown family in one place, Anna Twinsies has been able to collect millions of views on YouTube. During the final full week of January, the family hub collected 227 million weekly views. That placed it in 11th place in our U.S. Top 50, right between short-form standouts Alan Chikin Chow and Marta & Rustam.
Anna Twinsies is experiencing YouTube success even through its creator is a relatively recent TikTok transplant. Brown and her family only hit the YouTube scene in 2020, so there’s still plenty of room for this family to grow — even if mom chooses not to have any more children.
This week, there are 36 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
