Here Are the Top YouTube Channels from February

Here are some other numbers achieved by last month’s top 100 YouTube creators and channels: The top four channels saw at least 1B views each. The highest average 30-day engagement rate across the top ten was 2.9x. The highest rate of the top 100 channels was, like in January, a whopping 10x+, or ten times the normal engagement rate across YouTube! February 2019 saw two key trends across these channels: the continued growth and presence of India-based entertainment and content, as well as the high engagement rates and rank increases for musical artists. YouTube Is the Go-To Platform for Indian Video Creators Viewers around the world consistently visit YouTube for popular genres of entertainment such as family-friendly programming and music (more on that in a bit). Across the top ten most-viewed channels from February, even more Indian channels have staked a claim in the world of YouTube.

With a 30-day engagement rate of 3.2x, we suspect Marshmello’s YouTube channel and engagement experienced a surge in popularity thanks to his live concert performance within the game Fortnite at the start of the month. And sure enough, his most-viewed video from the month is still his recording of this event, which boasts 32M views and a 30-day engagement rate of 4.6x: Other musically-inclined channels which claimed higher-than-usual 30-day engagements across this month’s top YouTube channels were the K-pop creators BLACKPINK and 1theK. However, her 30-day engagement rate was also impressive at nearly three times the average engagement rate on YouTube at 2.9x.
