YouTube Music Charts Launches in 44 Countries
YouTube recently updated their YouTube Music Charts, which display data based on views for top artists, songs, and music videos in 44 countries and can be filtered by country or globally. YouTube Music Charts are part of an endeavor started in 2015, called YouTube for Artists, an artist-centric resource hub that provides news, education and insights for artists so that they can stay informed and gain the most value from their YouTube presence.
Music Charts originally rolled out in 2016 and the new updated versions aim to provide clear and concise charts for top artists, songs, and music videos. YouTube has also added a brand new trending section that is continuously updated to provide the most current snapshot of what YouTube’s 1.8 billion monthly global users are interacting with across the platform.
The Trending section is updated multiple times a day to provide real-time data. The Top songs,Top music videos, and Top artists sections are all updated weekly on Sunday at 12PM PST. While Trending provides an immediate snapshot of music videos with rising popularity, the top charts showcase the top-performing content on the platform based on overall performance of an artist, song, or music video, such as number of weeks on a specific chart, week-over-week percentage change, and weekly views. read more
