Around two months ago, Sony Music India claimed that Indian Rapper Badshah has set a new 24-hours debut viewership record by song Paagal by getting more than 75 million-plus hits. However, Badshah later acknowledges that he used promotional ads to drive more traffic and views that help him making the 24-hours record.

Our goal is to ensure YouTube remains a place where all artists are accurately recognized and celebrated for achieving success and milestones.
