Underground India rapper, Badshah, allegedly beat Taylor Swift’s Youtube record by using Google Ads.
“According to Sony Music, rapper Badshah’s latest track has set a record on YouTube.
The music video for ‘Paagal’ (pagal means bizarre or fantastic in Hindi) reached over 75 million views within 24 hours of its release. The major label claims the video has “dethroned [both] BTS and Taylor Swift.'”
Label and artist claim the success is because of Google Ads.
