TikTok star Addison Rae apparently made a nice chunk of change off her recent WAP video which has also become one of her most popular uploads. 

Just like most songs that hit the chart and have a dance of some kind attached to it, TikTokers both big and small have been trying to recreate the captivating WAP dance.

Addison Rae, who has over 56 million followers on the video platform, shared one of the best recreations of the dance herself – leading to her upload getting over 100 million views within two days of it being live. 

As a result, it seems like she’s not only picked up a whole host of new followers from the TikTok, but also a nice chunk of change to add to her growing bank account.

According to TikToker dlitztv, the social media platform now pays creators around 0.02/0.03 cents per 1000 views they get on an upload, meaning that some of the biggest creators can really cash in on their popularity.

At the time of dlitztv uploading his TikTok, Addison’s WAP dance had just a touch over 107 million views, meaning she’d made over $3210 off the number of views alone. 

This fee, which might not make anyone jump out of their chair, just adds to any other money she makes through advertisers latching on to her popularity and sponsoring TikToks as well as other social media posts.

Back in early August, it was reported by Forbes that Rae made over $5 million in pre-taxed income in 2019. The figure might have been surprising to some fans given that, when it comes to TikTok, she still lags behind Charli D’Amelio in terms of followers. 

The $3210 might seem like a small figure compared to that reported $5 million, but at the end of the day, it all adds up. Even though Addison’s mom outshined her with her take on the dance, she’s only made around half of the $3200 – so the youngster has got bragging rights there.

Popular Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel lost it after achieving an incredible Minecraft speedrun time. The former Overwatch pro hilariously called out fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors, and challenged him to beat his record.

For many, xQc has become the face of Twitch over the last two years. The former Overwatch pro is one of the most followed channels on the platform, and consistently pulls in 30-40k viewers each time he goes live.

During his October 13 broadcast, the Canadian exploded in excitement after setting a new personal record when beating Minecraft. Celebrating, the 24-year-old called out Forsen and dared him to pass his speedrun time.

Despite releasing over a decade ago, Minecraft continues to be one of the most popular games on Twitch. In 2020, streamers like xQc have been trying to beat the game in record time in front of viewers.

After months of previous attempts – some that ended in disaster – the stars finally aligned for Lengyel on October 13 when he managed to complete the title incredibly fast.

Using the Nether bed trick to slay the Ender Dragon quickly, the former Overwatch pro was able to take down the final boss and achieve a speedrun record of just 33 minutes. “Holy s**t!” he screamed as beast died.

Elated, the star exploded in celebration over his new time. “33! Beat that s**t!” He then hilariously called out Forsen who has also been speedrunning Minecraft. “Beat it, Forsen! Beat it! 33:49! Nearly sub-30!” he said, slamming his fists on the desk.

xQc challenged the fellow Twitch personality to attempt to beat his record. “Beat that, baby! Forget it. Forget variety, Forsen. It will take months to beat that s**t!  Forget the variety streams, dude.”

According to Lengyel, everything seemed to just click and fall into place during his latest Minecraft run. He was even able to achieve a “perfect” kill of the Ender Dragon using his strategy, which he had been practicing in the past month.

On October 14, Forsen responded to the challenge simply stating, “Alright. Alright. Let’s do it!” Only time will tell if the Swede will be able to match or beat xQc’s incredible 33-minute time, but the rivalry has been entertaining to say the least.
