YouTube has launched a new chart service especially dedicated to music videos. Following various general ranking services like the latest and most comprehensive service YouTube Trends, the new service located at youtube.com/music is the first one just about music. And it is comfortable by listing charts of various genres.
As a YouTube service the new charts are important and interesting at all. But there is another peculiarity compared to other chart services usually listing just commercially created music videos. The YouTube chart service lists both commercially created music videos as well as videos created by users and independent artists and the like, which is a great pool of creativity by counting user generated videos in the sense of mashups and some great independent music maybe not found elsewhere. Further information about the service is available by the official blog post about the launch of the service and at the YouTube Music Charts Portal.
