The pianist’s pre-Saudi Arabia concert soundcheck lands at No. 1 for February 2020.

Another month, another Yanni No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Facebook Live Videos chart.

Yanni paces the February 2020 list, marking the fifth time in the last year that the pianist has claimed the top spot.

The chart, the latest of which recaps February 2020 activity, is a monthly look at the widest-reaching and most-reacted-to videos posted by musicians on Facebook Live, as tracked by media analytics company Shareablee. Rankings are determined by a formula that blends reactions, comments, shares and first-seven-days views.

Yanni’s latest reigning clip comes via his soundcheck prior to a concert in Saudi Arabia on Feb. 6. The video was the most-reacted-to upload by a musician in February 2020 with 193,000 reactions, while its shares count (43,000) and first-seven-days views (7.2 million) were also tops among musicians, according to Shareablee.

Gusttavo Lima ranks at No. 2 with the top-rated clip in the chart’s other metric, comments. His 50-minute Feb. 4 upload, during which he performed various songs on acoustic guitar, received 147,000 comments alongside 132,000 reactions, 10,000 shares and 1.2 million views in its first seven days.

A pair of Claudia Leitte videos debut at Nos. 3 and 5, while Alejandro Fernandez also hits the top five at No. 4.
