This week’s in the USA - based on YouTube views - between the period of 12/10/2018 to 18/10/2018 brought some expected, some unexpected and some downright bizarre rankings in the views served to you by .
Coming in at number 40, and up 4 positions from last week we have 'I'm the one’ by Lil Wayne, Chance The Rapper, Justin Bieber, Dj Khaled & Quavo - a favorite from 2018 with a huge 77 weeks in the top 40 with 5.8 million views in the previous week. The entry has gained the top 10 times in 2017. But that’s nothing compared to the Shawn Mendes & Zedd’ ‘Lost In Japan’ at 39 with a ridiculous 147 places climbed in the last week, slotting itself into the top 40 with an unexpected 5.9 million views - that’s one eager fan running the song on repeat - we think anyway.
