YouTube Did Some Serious Cleaning And Removed 2 Billion Fake Views From Major Label Channels



I didn’t see that one coming!

Nowadays you can buy anything including, of course, YouTube views. But my sceptical ass thought that everyone was in it together, Youtube, labels, advertisers, etc.

YouTube recently did some serious cleaning and supposedly removed about 2 bilions fake views from 3 major labels: Universal Music Group, Sony/BMG and RCA Records.

Universal Music’s artists took the biggest hit, losing one billion of its seven billion views. This means the channels for artists such as and Nicki Minaj took major losses in their view counts. Sony/BMG and RCA also lost 850 million and 159 million views as well

Labels aren’t the only ones being singled out. It appears that other channels belonging Chris Brown and Beyonce (…) received slashes in views. However, artists who are associated with VEVO—which is co-owned by Sony, Universal and Abu Dhabi Media—did not suffer any losses in the crackdown. Major artists such as Eminem, Rihanna, and Justin Bieber were unaffected.
