Thalia and Armin van Buuren Shine On August’s Top Facebook Live Videos Chart

Armin van Buuren holds seven of the 10 spots on Billboard's Top Facebook Live Videos chart for August, but it's Thalia who comes out on top.

Armin van Buuren holds seven of the 10 spots on Billboard‘s Top Facebook Live Videos chart for August, but it’s Thalia who comes out on top.

The chart, of which the latest edition recaps August 2018 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.

The No. 1 rank is Thalia’s second on the chart in three months, following her triumph on the June list with a clip that celebrated 50 million global YouTube views for her music video for “No Me Acuerdo” with Natti Natasha.

This time around? More of the same. In a video posted Aug. 2, Thalia thanks fans for getting the “Acuerdo” video to 200 million global views.


The Facebook clip leads three of the four chart metrics for August, gathering 82,000 reactions, 46,000 comments and 1.1 million views in its first seven days, according to Shareablee. It’s the only video by a musician in August to reach at least 1 million views.

“Acuerdo,” meanwhile, continues to scale Billboard charts, reaching a new No. 14 high on the Hot Latin Songs list dated Sept. 22.

The most-shared video of the month belongs to van Buuren, whose Aug. 5 broadcast from his performance at Romania’s Untold Festival racked up 7,000 shares. It makes the chart at No. 2 thanks to an additional 33,000 reactions, 21,000 comments and 744,000 views in its first seven days.
