Read on to find out which hub – after spending a few weeks at No. 2 – cemented its position at the top of our Global Top 50.


After regaining the top spot in the Global Top 50 last week, T-series extended its lead in the second full week of June.

The Indian record label, which regularly outperforms its competition on YouTube week in week out, added another 674.4 million weekly views in the last seven days. In terms of lifetime viewership, the gap between the T series and its contemporaries is even greater. No other YouTube channel is less than 60 billion 193.4 billion lifetime views the Indian channel received.

In this week’s world top five, we once again say hello to another of our regulars. SET India sometimes falls out of our rankings due to irregularities in how views are counted, but when the South Asian TV hub is included in our global chart, it tends to rank high. This time it’s at the very top of position #2. His 610.6 million weekly views make it one of only two channels to surpass the 600 million views mark in our last measurement period.

The return of SET India in the top 5 of the displaced Like Nastyawho fell one spot and ended up finishing third in the World Top 50. The Florida-headquartered family vlog continued its run as the most-watched U.S.-based YouTube channel. He won 549.8 million weekly viewswhich was enough for it to stay ahead of another US-based channel with a similar audience.

This channel is Cocomelon – nursery rhymeswhich ranked fourth in our current Global Top 50. The animation hub used its collection of colorful and melodic jingles to capture 527.5 million weekly views in our latest count. This total represented a 6% increase in viewership week over weekand Cocomelon is once again closing in on the top spot in our US Top 50.

Sony SA, a sister channel of SET India, completes the global top five. The comedy-focused hub won 452.2 million weekly views.

Top Winners

You might have heard that BTS is breaking up (for now). After hearing this news, we’re asking the question on everyone’s mind: will this be the last time a new single from the septet pushes their label into the Global Top 50?

To be fair, BTS doesn’t always make our global rankings, but when it does, they get what they pay for. The video for the upbeat new track “Yet to Come” was released on both BTS’s personal YouTube channel and the channel representing the group’s label. Hybe, and these two hubs have thus entered our Global Top 50. Is there another act that can match the viral popularity of these K-pop legends?

Maybe not, but soon the competition will be very different. As the members of BTS pursue solo projects, the Bangtan TV channel will likely go silent in the not-too-distant future. Before that happens, expect the destination to stay on our charts as long as it hosts the VOD versions of the band’s breakup announcement.

In the spirit of “Yet to Come”, let’s not dwell on the endings. Instead, we can appreciate the jaw-dropping numbers: Hybe Labels ranked 29 in our Global Top 50 after receiving 214.7 million weekly views. Bangtan TV finished just behind with 211.6 million weekly views and one 32nd place. They are the only two Korean channels in this week’s Global Top 50, so let’s salute the power of BTS and their omnipotent fandom.
