YouTube Updates Music Charts, Reveals New Trending Chart

YouTube revealed its newly improved music charts today (May 10), which showcase the most popular artists, songs and music videos for 44 global destinations including the U.S., U.K., Australia, Brazil, Canada, New Zealand, Japan and more.

The YouTube charts now include new Trending charts for each destination, which are updated multiple times per day to provide a real time view of the top new music fans are enjoying. The new Trending charts represent YouTube’s first dedicated external signal of the most-viewed new music on the platform.

The charts for Top Songs, Top Artists, and Top Music Videos are each updated weekly, on Sundays at 12 p.m. PST.

The Top Songs chart is calculated by combining all official versions of a song (including official music video, official song used in user-generated content, and lyric videos). The Top Artists chart is calculated based on the total views of an artist’s entire discography, including official music videos, official song user-generated content, official live performances, remixes, lyric videos, album tracks and collaborations.

The Top Music Videos chart highlights the most-viewed official music videos on the YouTube platform.

YouTube boasts 1.8 billion global monthly users.
