2018 Chart Year - 3/24/18 - Week 18/53 - Vylet Pony Tops Chart Thanks to Outside Promo, 4everfreebrony & Jyc Row Debut in Top 10

After a lengthy run on the charts, "In a Rush" by Vylet Pony surges up to the summit thanks to fortuitious circumstance. An animator not from the fandom, LupisVuples, used the song as the soundtrack to a 1 minute dance animation, spurring a big boost in views and likes for the track. With it ascending to the top of the chart on its 16th week, Vylet enters rare company of late toppers:

  • 37 Weeks, "Pegasus Device", SlyphStorm, 2015
  • 25 Weeks, "Egomania", Silva Hound feat. BLACKGRYPH0N, 2017
  • 24 Weeks, "Soldiers of the Night", SlyphStorm, 2014
  • 22 Weeks, "Spectacular (The Spectacle)", PrinceWhateverer, 2016
  • 20 Weeks, "Come Alive", Silva Hound feat. Eurobeat Brony, 2015
  • 18 Weeks, "Back to You", Luna Jax feat. 4everfreebrony, 2017
  • 18 Weeks, "Wild Fire", Silva Hound & MandoPony, 2015
  • 17 Weeks, "Strangers", Scratch21 feat. EileMonty, 2015
  • 16 Weeks, "In a Rush", Vylet Pony, 2018
  • 16 Weeks, "The Magic Inside (I Am Just a Pony)", BassBeastJD, 2015
  • 13 Weeks, "Entropy", AwkwardMarina, 2014
Elsewhere in the top 10, there's some notable movement: "Moonbow" by John Kenza, aided by additional promo outside the fandom, hits another peak, up 5-3. "Second Chances" by 4everfreebrony, featuring a litany of guitarists, debuts healthily at #6. "Healing", Jyc Row's latest track from his upcoming EP themed around the 6 pillars, debuts at #9.

2018 Chart Year - 3/17/18 - Week 17/53 - PrinceWhateverer & Jyc Row Number One for Second Week

Open Up Your Eyes' combination metal and orchestral take leads the chart once more, however right below it there's tons of entropy in the top 10. In a Rush, which zoomed to a new peak last week, is up once more 5-2. Could it end up challenging for the top spot? In addition, the launch of Ponies at Dawn: Rebirth sends two songs to the top 10: Night Queen (#4), the sequel song to Sun of the Night, which rebounds 44-8 back into the zone, and Moonbow, up 17-5 in its sophomore week. To provide the cherry to this chaos sundae, Extraction is also back in the top 10 for no discernable reason. Have fun, and check the full chart below the break!

2018 Chart Year - 3/10/18 - Week 16/53 - PrinceWhateverer & Jyc Row Debut at Number One

In surprising news, Open Up Your Eyes is no longer the number one song on the chart, replaced by...Open Up Your Eyes. Yep, this is the third take on the song to top the charts, this time headlined by the combination of PrinceWhateverer and Jyc Row, with PW's cohorts MantaTsubasa and Sable Symphony along as featured acts. In addition, re-entering at #3 this week is Flamethrone Legacy, a new peak for the song thanks to its rerelease with new featured acts BLACKGRYPH0N & Michelle Creber. The last big piece of news is the resurgence for In a Rush by Vylet Pony, up 41-5 (a new peak) thanks to an insurgence of 250 likes this week. Check out the full chart past the break!

2018 Chart Year - 3/3/18 - Week 15/53 - CG5 Leads Seventh Week, UndreamedPanic, Strigidae, & Hydra Land in Top 10, & Osoch Returns

Open Up Your Eyes leads the chart for a seventh consecutive week, though it appears to have begun deflating its lead. As such, its rival Not Much to Miss holds its ground at #2; could it be the next leader? Bravery, the big arrival from last week, climbs 6-4 in its second week, posting significant gains in views to compensate for a cut in likes. Debuting in the top 10 are Hold On, here at #6 with vocals by Strigidae and instrumentation by UndreamedPanic, and Iced Coffee, a top 10 at #9 for Hydra courtesy of a feature on the Cider Party channel as an early exclusive. Also, returning last week after its abrupt dropoff is Open Up Your Eyes' metal cover by Osoch, up 20-8. Find out more past the break!

2018 Chart Year - 2/24/18 - Week 14/53 - CG5 Leads Sixth Week, Jyc Row Storms Top 10, & 4everfreebrony Enters With Rerecord

CG5 continues dominating the charts, as the song once again posts a gain week-on-week, this time up 16% and holding a 143% lead over the runner-up. However, this week it's a new challenger once more, as Not Much to Miss gains 3-2, up in overall points. The top 5 also shakes up most peculiarly as Daybreaker, the Solar Empress jumps 7-5 after multiple months out of the zone. This ends up slightly overshadowing the cause: Jyc Row's new single Bravery, off the upcoming Pillars of Equestria EP. Also along for the ride is sister song Nightmare Moon, the Lunar Queen, up 12-9, a new peak for the track (Daybreaker formerly reached #2). Finally, 4everfreebrony makes a flashy entrance once more as the new recording for Stay debuts at #10. Find out more past the break!

2018 Chart Year - 2/17/18 - Week 13/53 - CG5 Leads Fifth Week, 4everfreebrony & EileMonty Debut, Progressive Element Climbs, & Luna Ticks Get a Late Entrance

Open Up Your Eyes' CG5 take gets a significant boost this week, leaving its opponents even more in the dust than in the past. This marks the fifth week the song has been atop the charts, after debuting in the top 10 just a month and a half ago. Its competition, however, has changed up considerably since it started leading, as Part of the Swarm (4-2) leapfrogs Not Too Late (2-5) to perhaps return to the spot it held for 4 weeks itself. In addition, debuting this week is new 4everfreebrony single Not Much to Miss, featuring the vocals of EileMonty. Could this be a future leader? We'll see perhaps in the coming weeks. Other news in the top 10 is Spellcaster jumping in 27-9 in its second frame, giving Progressive Element his first solo top 10 (his prior entry, Stars & Sky, which peaked at #2, made it to that spot thanks to an UndreamedPanic remix contributing 90% of the points on most weeks). The most unexpected thing however, especially considering we're headed into Valentine season, is the arrival of It's a Pony Kind of Christmas' cover by Luna Ticks featuring FritzyBeat and PegasYs, up 11-10. Originally released in 2016, the track has had a second life, having received a promotional video tied to an anticipated video game project that mimics the famous Guitar Hero series.

2018 Chart Year - 2/10/18 - Week 12/53 - CG5 Leads Fourth Week, GhostXb, Wubcake, & John Kenza Return to Top 10

Open Up Your Eyes leads the charts once more for a full month of reigning, having a sizable margin against all competition. However, that could change in the coming weeks, as a new contender comes into play: Extraction by GhostXb & Wubcake, which makes a massive surge in viewership this week to jump 15-3 to its new peak (its prior peak was #7). In addition, Timeless by John Kenza, carried by its VIP rerecording from this year, returns to the top 10 in an 18-10 climb. Right outside the top 10, It's a Pony Kind of Christmas by Luna Ticks jumps 20-11, once again setting a new peak for itself. For more, check past the break!
