    If you want to beat the game, and the rules involve faking your stats, why wouldn't you?
    The media has people convinced everyone who made it on YT just "uploaded a video and suddenly everyone knew about it".
    Yeah, sure.

    The number of youtube views is also a Youtube SEO ranking factor, so I suppose many stars will have to buy views in order to compete with copycats who (illegally :rolleyes: ) reupload their videos on other channels...

    However why would this be interesting to know ?

    best regards

    Jesse and Jennifer (or Jeanna as she calls herself on YT) from BFvsGF /PrankvsPrank apparently used to buy views and subscribers back when they started out. Nikki (Nikitabanana88) once went on a rant about the shady practices BFvsGF used to gain popularity, but IDK if that is really true.

    There are a lot of YouTube sensations that buy views. Just becuase they have a large follower base, people think that these views are all real.

    I myself have sold millions of views to such YouTube channels, but won't name them.

    I think most of the record labels does this, though I don't see any classical music labels doing it
