The country singer’s Oct. 30 video backstage at "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" was the most-watched and most-reacted-to clip by a musician in October.

Blake Shelton scores the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top Facebook Live Videos chart for a second time, crowning the October 2017-dated ranking.

The chart, whose latest edition recaps October 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.

Shelton, who previously led the April 2017 chart with a clip that followed his April 11 Grand Ole Opry performance, takes the No. 1 spot for October with a video taken backstage at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Oct. 30. The video also previewed the rollout for his new album Texoma Shore, which dropped later that week on Nov. 3, with new songs daily leading up to its release along with a tour announcement earlier that day.

The video was the most-reacted-to clip by a musician on Facebook Live in October with 153,000 reactions, according to Shareablee. It also snagged the most views in its first seven days: 3.1 million, 1 million ahead of his closest competitor.

The No. 2 video belongs to Ricky Martin, whose Oct. 24 post was the only other to reach eclipse 1 million in its first seven days by a musician, ending up with 2.1 million. The video, which earned 46,000 comments and 16,000 shares (the most of any by a musician in October), solicited donations for the Ricky Martin Foundation, which would in turn support relief efforts in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria in September.

According to a widget on the video, the foundation received $31,828 in donations as part of the video.

The rest of the top 10 included, as it often does, multiple videos from Guns N’ Roses. In October, three videos from the band make the chart (Nos. 4, 9 and 10), led by footage of the act performing “Patience” at Madison Square Garden in New York with P!nk. The video, posted Oct. 12, was watched 805,000 times in its first seven days and was shared 5,000 times.
