(Re-) released a little over six months ago as a direct competitor for the likes of Apple Music and Spotify, YouTube Music has been growing at an impressively steady pace in terms of both functionality and availability.
At a local level, you can access a Top 20 Trending chart playlist aiming to provide a “unique, real-time view of the hottest new music fans are enjoying in a specific country” with multiple updates taking place every day. That way, this content should never grow boring or stale, unlike more conventional Top 100 Songs and Top 100 Music Videos lists, which are only refreshed once a week, on Sunday at 12 p.m. PST.
On the bright side, YouTube Music will separate the global and regional variants of those two charts playlists at all times, which means more content for you. Easy to find, easy to stream, easy to love. At least in theory, because in practice, you can expect a major overlap between a country’s top songs and top music videos lists. For instance, both US charts are topped by Ariana Grande and Travis Scott’s Sicko Mode track featuring Drake right now.
