Over 5% of YouTube is made up of musical content

Music has become a huge thing on YouTube. So much so that over 5 percent of all YouTube channels are made up of musical content. There has been a massive increase in the popularity of music on YouTube, with channels that constantly play live feeds of music to artists creating their own music channels to get listeners, just about every form of song has made it onto the video platform. Gangham Style - a music video by the South Korean musician Psy - was the first-ever YouTube video with over 1 billion views.
