Over the weekend, both Tekashi 6ix9ne and Nicki Minaj claimed their track "TROLLZ" had shattered the record for the most YouTube views in 24 hours with 46 million, breaking the record 6ix9ine set last month with"GOOBA."
"Thank you for watching y’all 🙏 #TrollzVideo just broke the record for most views ever in 24 hours for a hip hop video. 🌈♥️🎀🎈🎉🥰 46 million & counting," Nicki stunted.
However, YouTube is refusing to recognize the record because 6ix9ine and Nicki bought about ten million of those views.
"Videos eligible for YouTube’s 24-hour record debuts are those with the highest views from organic sources within the first 24 hours of the video’s public release," a YouTube rep told XXl. "This includes direct links to the video, search results, external sites that embed the video and YouTube features like the homepage, watch next and Trending. Video advertising is an effective way to reach specific audiences with a song debut, but paid advertising views on YouTube will no longer be considered when looking at a 24-hour record debut."
Hmm. How many of 6ix9ine's many spins do you think are a result of that Grainge money?
