Youtube’s music page features a new chart of the top 100 music videos on their site.
The YouTube 100 measures song traffic across official music videos, user-uploaded videos and viral debuts, and uses this data to provide a holistic view of song popularity.
A quick reveiew of the new feature
– Ability to “play” the chart is a nice feature, and youtube is clearly trying to make aspects of the service work for listening and watching – the top 100 is also a great music playlist.
– The top 100 almost all established artists and hit songs. There are only a few non traditional clips, and a few lyric videos in the top 100
– Global Chart? Its not 100% clear if im getting a localized chart, but there was a nice mix on international content on the chart.
I hope you tube continues to expand here. Expanding the depth of content, perhaps sub charts in different genres, UGC only, vs official, cover songs etc.
