For years, Swedish video creator PewDiePie has dominated YouTube, raking in the most subscribers of any channel on the platform.
Felix Kjellberg — PewDiePie’s real name — has been the most popular YouTube channel for five years. He currently has more than 67 million subscribers.
Now, the growth of one particular channel on Google’s video sharing service threatens to usurp him.
T-Series, a popular Indian music record label, is currently within inches of overtaking Kjellberg’s dominance. It has 67.23 million subscribers, just 140,000 short of the latter’s 67.37 million.
And it has been growing at a much faster rate than Kjellberg’s. While the PewDiePie YouTube channel has seen its number of followers steadily grow by around 15 percent since the start of the year, T-Series’ subscriber count has more than doubled, according to comparison data from social media statistics website Social Blade.
The world’s most subscribed YouTuber Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg aka Pewdiepie is leaving no stones unturned to take digs at the #2 YouTube channel – T-Series.
T-Series, an Indian music record label and film production company, founded by Gulshan Kumar in the 1980s, is inching closer to claiming the #1 position on YouTube and this development has got the entire Internet talking. Including YouTube king Pewds.
While the Swedish content creator is backed by 66,802,893 subs, T-Series, on the other hand, is just a hair behind with 65,097,974 subs.
Sensing the end is near, Pewdiepie recently dropped a diss track roasting T-Series and the YouTube community couldn’t have asked for more.
Here are some excerpts from the song.
T-Series, I’m here to spill the real tea
You tryna dethrone me from spot on number one
But you India, you lose so best think you haven’t won
When I’m through with you
We’re gonna be completely f***** done
‘Cause we only just begun
I review you *clap clap*
Zero, bye bitch, gone
So come on, T-Series
Looking hungry for some drama
Here, let me serve your Bi*** lasagana
