Justin Bieber rules Billboard’s Top Facebook Live Videos chart for the first time thanks to his May 22 AMA (Ask Me Anything) session with wife Hailey.
The chart, the latest of which recaps May 2020 activity, is a monthly look at the widest-reaching and most-reacted-to videos posted by musicians on Facebook Live, as tracked by media analytics company Shareablee. Rankings are determined by a formula that blends reactions, comments, shares and first-seven-days views.
Bieber’s May 22 “Ask Us Anything” clip lasted just under an hour and was the third in a series, with the other two also reaching the May 2020 chart at Nos. 4 and 5.
The May 22 upload led all videos from musicians in May in reactions, with 203,000 in all, according to Shareablee. In addition, it earned 3.1 million views in its first seven days, plus 87,000 comments and 5,000 shares.
A May 1 Larry Hernandez video enters at No. 2 with 4.2 million views in its first seven days, the most of any musician in May, with the American-born Regional Mexican singer giving a tour of his home during quarantine.
