5: Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes (49.1 million subscribers)

Cocomelon - Nursery Rhymes YouTube channel

Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes is a channel that focuses almost entirely on classic children’s nursery rhymes set to 3D animation, as well as some original songs. Originally called ABCkidTV, it’s one of the longest-running top channels on YouTube, having published its first video in September 2006. It saw steady growth over the years, but its popularity exploded in 2017, where it began to garner more than 100,000 new subscribers a month.

With an average of three million new subscribers every month, this channel is quickly climbing the ranks and could be one of the top few channels in the not-too-distant future. Clearly a controversial channel, however, Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes has one of the 12 most disliked videos of all time. The Cocomelon “Bath Song” has more than 1.6 million dislikes, alongside its 1.45 billion views.

4: Canal KondZilla (49.6 million subscribers)

Konrad Cunha Dantas, otherwise known as KondZilla, is a Brazilian music video producer, director, and writer who has directed over 700 music videos. According to his YouTube channel, he is the largest producer of electronic music in Brazil. His YouTube channel, which Dantas started in 2012, has over 48 million subscribers and over 23 billion views.

Dantas has worked with artists such as MC Guime, Preta Gil, Koral Conká, DJ Marlboro, and more. His work on the music video “Tombei,” by Koral Conká, was nominated for Best Music Video at the 2015 Multishow Awards. The video has been viewed over 26 million times.

3: 5-Minute Crafts (56 million subscribers)

Launched less than three years ago, 5-Minute Crafts has surpassed some of the most popular YouTube channels, like whinderssonnunes and elrubiusOMG. The simple how-to channel has more than 50 million million subscribers. With videos like “20 bathroom hacks to make life easier” and “35 unbelievable cooking hacks,” there is something for everyone.

5-Minute Crafts has near-3,000 videos that have been viewed over 13 billion times. With nearly two million new subscribers every month there is a chance it could eventually be number one, but it’s got a long way to go to break into the top two.

2. PewDiePie (96.2 million subscribers)

After a long time on top, PewDiePie is now only the second-most subscribed YouTube channel, with over 96.2 million subscribers. Created in 2010 by Swedish comedian Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, the PewDiePie YouTube channel is best known for its “Let’s Play” videos and blogs, as well as Kjellberg’s following. His content has been described as goofy, obnoxious, and filled with profanity. He could also be considered quite a controversial figure.

After dropping out of college to focus on creating content, PewDiePie surpassed one million subscribers just two years after his channel’s creation. Kjellberg’s influence on the social network has also had a positive effect on the sales of indie video games, particularly Goat Simulator and McPixel.

He maintained a feud with now most-subscribed channel, T-Series, throughout much of 2018. They stole the top spot position from each other multiple times, but Kjellberg eventually capitulated and has now fallen far enough behind that it would take something quite special for him to retake the top spot. That said, his subscriber numbers are still strong, and he seems almost certain to become the second channel to pass 100 million subscribers. Likely sometime in the latter-half of 2019.

1.T-Series (100million subscribers)

Finally eclipsing the long-time YouTube king is T-series, a popular Indian music company with more than 100 million subscribers and 2.7 billion monthly views, making it the most-subscribed and most-viewed YouTube channel in the world. It was also the first channel to ever reach 100 million subscribers and unsurprisingly, is the most subscribed Hindi-language and Indian YouTube channel. The T-series channel is best known for its Bollywood music soundtracks.

While the T-series channel has been around since 2006 (YouTube started in 2005), the T-series company, which runs the channel, has been around since the 1980s. The company’s breakthrough came in 1990, with the film soundtrack album, “Aashiqui.” The soundtrack sold over 20 million units in India, making it the best-selling Bollywood album of all time.

Numbers are based on Social Blade findings as of May 2019
