Taeyeon continues to prove her worth as a soloist as the Girls' Generation member's latest solo release "Rain" was flooded with YouTube views this past month, making it the top-viewed K-pop video in both America and around the world. The singer earns the accomplishment just four months after her proper solo debut video for "I" topped the rankings last October.

February's YouTube views are more mixed than past months. Two girl groups rank within the Top 5 of both lists: AOA Cream, the sugary splinter trio of girl group AOA, see their debut music video for "I'm Jelly Baby" rank high in both America (at No. 4) and around the world (No. 3); while both the American and global list embraced MAMAMOO with two entries via "Taller Than You," released at the top of the month, ranking at Nos. 5 and 4, respectively, and "You're the Best" released at the end of the month at Nos. 10 and 7, respectively.

Taemin, a member of boy band SHINee, saw two of his videos rank high on the lists as "Drip Drop" ranked within the Top 5 in both the U.S. (No. 2) and around the world (No. 5), while the video for his promoted single "Press Your Number" ranked within the Top 10 at No. 3 in the states and No. 6 globally. The only other male act to land an entry on both charts is experimental boy band NU'EST with "Overcome" ranking at No. 6 in America and No. 8 globally.

Curiously, the previously unknown act SixBomb land in the runner-up position on the international list after their "Wait 10 Years Baby" video went viral for the female act's skin-tight, fleshy catsuits that drew comparisons to raw chicken. Many wondered if the group had used the bizarre outfits to stir up controversy and, at least locally, it seems to have earned some attention as the group had yet to score any type of notability, and boasted more YouTube views than some much more established acts by month's end.
