Featuring interesting animation and vocals from some of the biggest names in music, Lil Dicky’s new “Earth” video predictably had a big first week on YouTube.
According to the platform, the video generated 47.7 million global views during the April 21-27 tracking period. The tally slots the video at #3 on the Global YouTube Music Videos chart**.
“Earth” meanwhile ranks as the chart’s top debut**; only BTS’ previously released “Boy With Luv (featuring Halsey)” and Daddy Yankee & Snow’s previously released “Con Calma” generated more views during the tracking period.
**Editor’s Note: YouTube credits TWICE’s “Fancy” with 60.3 million views (the majority of which surely came from the new video), but the video is erroneously absent from the chart. If YouTube corrects the issue, “Fancy” may end up ahead of “Earth.”
