Disclaimer: The chart is based on YouTube’s Music Insights who overtly could provide stats for only these popular locations: Greater Accra, Ashanti Region and Northern Region. Views are counted for each track based on its International Standard Recording Code (ISRC). If an ISRC is assigned to an artist’s track and is claimed by Content ID, then YouTube counts any video that includes the track.
Assessment date: January 1, 2017 to December 16, 2017.
According to YouTube Music Charts and Music Insights:
- A track’s “total views” reflect views of videos that use all or part of a track – including official videos, live videos, fan videos, and commercials.
