Official YouTube Charts: YouTubes official chart for the week commencing August 23rd – August 29th 2019 is out and yet again Punjabi songs are missing! This week’s charts once again has thrown the limelight on Saga Music. Two songs linked to that label have failed to chart.
Same Beef featuring Sidhu Moose Wala and Bohemia has not charted, even though claiming 12 million views in the period of the charts. The big song this week is ‘Muchh’ by Diljit Dosanjh, this was released on August 22nd a day before the chart calculations started. Saga Music had the count for ‘Muchh’ at over 10 million for the period of the chart, yet YouTube has not counted the views towards its official chart for the same period.
The song in position 100 has 6m views so ‘Muchh’ and ‘Same Beef’ should have charted, but have not! So questions will need to be asked about Saga Music and seen as the sog ‘Muchh’ is pretty much everywhere the question needs to be asked – DO WE ACTUALLY KNOW THE SIZE OF OUR OWN MARKET?
If we look at Diljit Dosanjh’s personal YouTube artist information we see that ‘Muchh’ is not in his top 20 popular songs for the period of the charts. Mood, an audio release does feature, but no sign of ‘Muchh’. YouTube has removed the paid ad’s count from its charts and this seems to be impacting some labels more than others!
Lehanga by Jass Manak is this weeks top-performing Punjabi song on YouTube (Number 10), Pahadan by Rajat Nagpal is in at Number 30. Guri’s Jatti is the next song to chart at 41. Yaari which was released in June sees a return to the chart at 81.
