Ariana Grande’s ‘One Love Manchester’ Video Leads Top Facebook Live Videos Chart

The livestream of Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester tribute concert, which honored the victims of the bombing after her concert on May 22, leads Billboard's latest Top Facebook Live Videos chart.

The livestream of Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester tribute concert, which honored the victims of the bombing after her concert on May 22, leads Billboard’s latest Top Facebook Live Videos chart, as tracked by media analytics company Shareablee.

The chart, whose latest edition recaps June activity, is a monthly look at the widest-reaching and most-reacted-to videos posted by musicians on Facebook Live. Rankings are determined by a formula that blends reactions, comments, shares and first-seven-days views.

The chart’s leading video — which has since been deleted — featured the entire three-hour-long star-studded concert produced by Grande and her manager, Scooter Braun. Special guests included Pharrell Williams, Stevie Wonder, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Little Mix and more, and Grande performed a number of her hits, closing the show with a moving cover of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” The concert raised over $3 million for the British Red Cross, bringing donations to the Manchester Emergency Fund to over $12 million. Within its first seven days, the video garnered over 81 million views, with over 2.6 million reactions.


Notching four entries on this month’s list is rock band and Top Facebook Live Video chart veterans Guns N’ Roses. All four videos feature live clips from the European leg of their Not in This Lifetime… Tour, with Madrid, Hannover, Imola and London ranking at Nos. 3, 5, 6 and 7, respectively. The group led last month’s list with a cover of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” in honor of Chris Cornell; they also notched a video in the chart’s inaugural list in January and earned three spots on the tally in February.

Also returning to the list are David Guetta and Metallica, who both charted in May (Guetta with two separate videos) and now rank at Nos. 8 and 10, respectively.

It is unclear why the livestream of the One Love Manchester concert has been deleted, but it is likely due to the rights not being available for a rewatch after the concert concluded.
