Top 5 Most Viewed YouTube Channels from Barbados in 2021
Over the years, Youtube has diversified and grown to be a widely varied platform with users of all backgrounds.
With the number of channels increasing alongside countries and political entities, diversity keeps growing. Out of Barbados, there are dozens of well-known, popular channels running across various niches.
Today, that's what we're going to delve into the data. We've compiled a list of five of the most subscribed-to channels coming out of Barbados. We've used the website socialblade.com but cut through the noise to pull just the relevant ones.
When viewing the information on your own, you'll see a trend of channels using Barbados as their location without actually being based there. We've omitted those and the official channel for the international pop star, Rhianna, for this list and getting more unbiased local information.
With this insight, we'll get a more accurate look at the kind of content coming out of Barbados and what they are offering their audiences.
So, with that, let's get into it!

They offer their subscribers a place to stream music from local stations in Barbados in the '60s, '70s, and '80s.
Before we get to number one on the list today, honourable mention goes to Brainy Bajan Beauty. The channel is a DIY beauty, project, hair, and makeup tutorial channel based in Barbados. They have their subscriber count hidden, so we can't add them to this list. Since they joined YouTube in 2010, they've netted 3,983,381 views, with anywhere from hundreds of thousands to millions of views on each video. It's probably safe to say the channel would be among these if we had an exact metric.

The sort of content we see on the internet varies significantly. Factors include location, age and gender. Barbados population is highly engaged with content that centres around religion, music, and beauty. The most subscribed channel to date out of Barbados is Rhianna's official channel. However, her audience is more international than others on this list. This list shows that if you're looking to do well for your target audience on the island of Barbados, pick a niche and stick with it.
