Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran have each racked up more than 15 billion views on YouTube. Justin Bieber beats them both, with 18 billion views.
But none of those megastars come close to T-Series.
Although not widely known in the United States, T-Series, an Indian music label and film production company, has the most-watched YouTube channel in the world. Its videos have been seen 53 billion times. The channel gains over 100,000 subscribers a day and is about to pass the controversial personality PewDiePie to become the most-subscribed channel on YouTube.
And thanks to a rapidly growing online Indian viewer base and increasing international interest, its rise is not likely to slow anytime soon.
