That hub is slipping a bit in the global version of our weekly chart, but its American competition can’t quite keep pace with its viewership. Only two U.S.-based channels got at least 500 million views this week.
DaFuq!?Boom! is up to four straight weeks at #1 in the U.S. Top 50. With animated Shorts that riff on internet culture and often feature farts and toilets, the channel also known as Blugray has taken sophomoric humor to the top of the charts. DaFuq!?Boom! continued its hot streak into June by adding 582.6 million weekly views. By the end of this month, it will reach 10 million subscribers as well, proving there are a lot of fans who love its bathroom-based content.
CoComelon – Nursery Rhymes, which DaFuq!?Boom! passed on its way to first place, is still the runner-up in the U.S. Top 50. The Moonbug-owned channel, which operates out of its home base in California, has become the most-watched American YouTube channel of all time by offering sing-songy videos to young kids. CoComelon’s signature formula brought 559.7 million views to its primary YouTube channel during the week that was.
Another short-form channel is in third place in the U.S. Top 50. MaviGadget is a hub where visitors can “discover something unique,” according to a banner that appears on the channel’s homepage. If you’re into tech products, MaviGadget is for you. Maybe you’ve already contributed to the 455.6 million weekly views MaviGadget received as the calendar turned over to June. Either way, this channel is climbing the charts with its go-go gadget Shorts.
MrBeast, who uploads both long-form and short-form videos on his main YouTube channel, is in fourth place in the U.S. Top 50. The man born Jimmy Donaldson moved up seven spots in the ranking, with his latest competition video propelling him. That clip, which has more than 100 million views, makes up a significant portion of MrBeast’s 371.5 million weekly views. The most-subscribed individual creator on YouTube now reaches more than 157 million fans.
Dylan Anderson rounds out this week’s U.S. top five. The YouTube Shorts standout picked up 334.7 million weekly views.
Last week’s #5 finisher, ViralHog, is right behind Anderson in sixth place. In the next spot, a versatile young creator has reached his high-water mark in the U.S. Top 50. Adi Fishman earned a seventh-place finish after increasing his viewership by 79% week-over-week.
Fishman has been on YouTube since he was in high school, and he has grown on the platform alongside his brother Tal, who runs the popular Reaction Time channel. Over the years, the younger Fishman brother has studied the lifespan of a trend to inform his own videos. 22-year-old Adi is particularly adept at using YouTube Shorts, where six of his clips have earned at least 150 million views.
When we spoke to Fishman in 2019, he said he often uses the internet’s “word of the day” to find inspiration for his own content. In the above video, we can see how Fishman is harnessing YouTube Shorts trends to supercharge his vertical videos. The clip utilizes a family challenge format while focusing on food and eschewing dialogue. There’s even an “oddly satisfying” moment when the spaghetti splashes across the table.
With this astute approach to videomaking, 22-year-old Adi is raking in traffic. As the calendar turned over to June, he collected 306.4 million weekly views, which is an all-time high on his channel. Fishman now has more than four million subscribers after only five years of activity. If he continues to pay attention to the flavor of the week, he’ll go far, but he might want to clean up all that spaghetti first.
This week, there are 40 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
