After the addition of India, YouTube charts is available in a total of 56 countries across the globe.

The YouTube 'music charts' tracks trending artists, songs, music videos. The top songs, artists, and music videos are updated every week at 12:30pm. The songs and artists categories are calculated by combining all official versions, including "the official music video, official song used in user generated content and lyric videos."

YouTube modifies trending topics several times a day based on the total number of views.

As per Google, it is "YouTube's first dedicated external signal highlighting videos which were instantly popular upon release."
