Luke Bryan Rules Top Facebook Live Videos Chart With Acoustic ‘Knockin’ Boots’ Performance


Plus: Marshmello, Armin van Buuren, Tiesto and Alesso enter with Ultra Music Festival livestreams.

Luke Bryan’s livestreamed performance of new single “Knockin’ Boots” lands him the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top Facebook Live Videos chart for March 2019.

The chart, the latest of which recaps March 2019 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.

On March 29, the day of the new song’s wide release, Bryan uploaded a five-minute video showing him performing the single at home with an acoustic guitar.

The video was one of the most-viewed clips by a musician in its first seven days of release in March 2019, racking up 1.7 million views, according to Shareablee. It was also reacted to 68,000 times and shared 22,000 times, both high marks in those categories as well.

Bryan’s video reigns over Marshmello’s March 30 stream of his set at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. The video, which clocked in at an hour and 14 minutes long, is one of multiple clips on the March 2019 chart from electronic music festivals, with Armin van Buuren, Tiesto and Alesso reaching Nos. 5, 6 and 10, respectively with streams of their own Ultra performances. Marshmello’s led the way thanks to 70,000 reactions, 47,000 comments and 24,000 shares, the most of any musician-uploaded video in those three categories in March 2019.
