Here's the sixth bi-yearly local acts video views chart: who's making YouTube waves?
I do this ranking every six months. The exercise is starting to build up some long-term analysis potential. There's some interesting straws in the wind. I think YouTube viewing numbers are increasing overall, based on a rough analysis of upwards trends for many on the chart. But there are some caveats...
The headline? Laura Mvula still rules – just. But I think that she's going to be overtaken on the next chart by another spectacularly talented Birmingham woman who plays by her own rules. You may not have heard of her yet. But you certainly will.
On the verge of the big stuff...
This chart's big winner: Lady Leshurr. She has upped her game and surged, massively increasing her impact.
Health warning: YouTube numbers wobble.
Different genres, different viewing patterns.
Now... the chart
And two subsidiary charts
