New entries claim the top two spots on this week’s Global YouTube Music Videos Chart, with Paulo Londra’s “Plan A” and Stray Kids’ “MANIAC” both making their presence felt.

YouTube lists “Plan A” at #1 and “MANIAC” at #2, adding that each video received 24.5 million views during the March 18-24 tracking period.

At present, it is unclear whether “Plan A” has a higher view count when taking to additional decimal places, or if the video simply appears higher because YouTube’s chart page is unable to list a tie.

Either way, both videos deserve credit for their impressive opening week figures. “Plan A” did not even require a full week to reach 24.5 million views; it launched on day six of the tracking period.
