Keeps Ozuna off the throne for the second week running
For the longest we can remember, Ozuna has held the top spot on this chart with his videos being played on the popular video sharing site daily the most.
Bollywood playback singer now holds that distinction, with a cumulative view count of 768 million in 109 weeks (an improvement over the last time we reported about the chart on September 3, 2018, she had a total view count of 646 million then in 102 weeks).
Udit Narayan is see-sawing in the top 10, dropping to #4 (in 130 weeks) from #3 last week. His cumulative view count is 594 million.
That leaves Neha Kakkar rounding up the top 5 with 140million views in 106 weeks (474mn total views). The popular singer has seen a massive jump from the #11 position she saw herself in, last week.
That makes it three Indian singers in the Top 10 this week, a total of 11 in the Top 50, and finally 19 in the Top 100, with a marked improvement from the last time we checked (17 positions).
Most notably, two Bhojpuri artists Pawan Singh and Khesari Lal Yadav have stayed on the charts for some time now.>
