John Mayer leads the July 2017 edition of Billboard’s Top Facebook Live Videos chart with a live stream of one of his latest concerts.
The chart, whose latest edition recaps July 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.
Mayer’s No. 1 video was recorded from his July 26 concert in Los Angeles as part of the Bud Light Dive Bar Tour, on which Lady Gaga performed late last year to promote the release of her Joanne album. The clip, which spans an hour and 22 minutes in all, garnered 1.5 million views in its first seven days and 27,000 comments — the most of any video on this month’s chart, according to Shareablee. The set list included tracks from 2017’s The Search for Everything and some of the elder statesmen of Mayer’s discography like “3×5” and “Waiting on the World to Change,” as well as three songs performed with Alessia Cara at the end of the webcast.
Along with a slew of chart appearances from Top Facebook Live Videos chart stalwarts Guns N’ Roses (four in all), the chart also includes an
entry from Ringo Starr at No. 7. On July 7, the day of Starr’s 77th birthday, his Facebook account broadcast a party in front of the iconic Capitol Records building in Los Angeles. The video featured music and Starr blowing out the candles on a cake, as well as encouraging attendees and those watching at home to exclaim or post the words “Peace and love!” Starr’s video racked up 1.1 million views in its first seven days.
Meanwhile, the most-shared video, a clip of Guns N’ Roses performing “November Rain” at the Apollo Theater in New York (No. 3), was shared 19,000 times and received 91,000 reactions (likes, hearts, etc.).
