Controversy

In July 2019, there was some controversy regarding the legitimacy of YouTube's 24 hour records, after Indian hip hop rapper Badshah's song "Paagal" received 75 million views in 24 hours, and surpassed the viewership record of "Boy with Luv" by K-pop group BTS. YouTube did not congratulate Badshah like it did for previous record holders and later released a statement that Badshah's record label, Sony Music India, had purchased advertisements from Google and YouTube that embedded the video or directed fans to it in some way. It also emerged that this is a common practice in the global music industry, and similar methods had also been used by the record labels of previous record holders such as Ariana Grande, Blackpink and Taylor Swift, thus casting doubt on some of the past 24-hour viewership records on YouTube. [39] [40] In September 2019, YouTube announced that their charts will no longer include paid advertising views. [41]
