Lil Nas X remains hard to beat on YouTube’s top songs chart, claiming the No. 1 and No. 2 spots yet again with “Panini” and “Old Town Road.”
New artists are also making a name for themselves by finding success on YouTube, like YoungBoy Never Broke Again, who entered the top 100 for the first time at No. 4.
DaBaby made his debut on YouTube’s top 10 song list last week with “Intro,” and just one week later landed nine spots in the top 100. “Intro” continues to climb in the charts, but has yet to beat out “Panini,” which has been No. 1 for four weeks.
YouTube calculates its top songs chart by combining views on all official versions of a song. This includes the official music video, user-made videos with the official song, and lyric videos, although paid advertising views are no longer counted.
YouTube had over 2 billion monthly active users as of earlier this year.
Here are the 10 most popular songs on YouTube’s US top songs chart this week:
