YouTube stars Emma Chamberlain and James Charles have finally collaborated again, nearly a year after the unofficial “Sister Squad” went quiet — and fans are hopeful this means the group will make its long-awaited comeback.

It seems like every social media outlet has its own content collaborative: just take a look at the Hype House or Team 10, for example, which brought together some of YouTube and TikTok’s biggest stars under a single roof.

While not exactly like those two organizations, the “Sister Squad” had its own unique take on teaming up top-tier influencers, with best friends and YouTubers James Charles, Emma Chamberlain and the Dolan Twins becoming an unofficial YouTube group among themselves.

Dubbed the “Sister Squad” by fans, taking after James Charles’ own nickname for his viewers, the four content creators often appeared in each other’s videos and claimed to be thick as thieves — until things suddenly went quiet among the group around early 2019.

The Sister Squad was once one of YouTube’s biggest powerhouses – but the group went dark nearly a year ago, leaving fans wondering what happened between the friends.

This apparent breakup occurred a few months after James Charles’ viral scandal in May, after former mentor Tati Westbrook accused him of a slew of wrongdoings (including promoting a rival vitamin brand).

Nearly two years later, the “Sister Squad” seems to be shaping up again, as Emma and James have appeared in a collaborative video together, where Emma picked out James’ clothes for an entire week.

The two could barely keep it together as the video began, with Chamberlain humorously claiming that she was “getting emotional” as she blurted out James’ signature “Hi, sisters!” opener.

“I didn’t think I would ever be in this room again,” she admitted. “I feel really good. I missed you.”

“It’s been a really long time,” Charles continued after giving his friend a fierce hug. “Emma and I recently reconnected after I think like two years. Absolutely insane. …a lot can happen over the course of two years. Its been really amazing just catching back up and really being in each other’s lives again.”

Charles went on to claim that he and Chamberlain had reconnected “in private” and are now able to catch up with each other in the public eye, further adding fuel to the fire that something occurred behind the scenes to split the squad apart.

However, neither Emma nor James spilled the beans on what actually caused the Sister Squad to split up — but who cares when you’ve got two of YouTube’s biggest superstars back in each other’s good graces?

Californian YouTube Among Us sensation Corpse Husband has apparently appeared out of nowhere, but who exactly is he?

It’s safe to say that every gamer, non-gamer and Youtube fanatic knows about Among Us, the newest party game that sees players attempt to decipher who the impostor is before they brutally murder all of their comrades and win the game.

Thousands of streamers have jumped on the Among Us bandwagon, with names like xQc, Valkyre and Trainwrecks dominating the Among Us Charts. The game has even attracted political figures, namely American Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who used the game as a platform to reach out to the gaming youth of today.

On YouTube, however, the Among Us scene rests firmly within the grasp of Corpse Husband (or Corpse, who has become an overnight Among Us sensation. Despite his synonymity with the game though, Corpse has a long and varied streaming past despite only being the tender age of 23.

From YouTube spook to Among Us fame

Corpse’s Youtube career began in the dark realms of horror story narration. Citing online CreepyPasta narration channels such as Mr.Nightmare, Be.Buster and Lazy Masquerade as inspiration, Corpse created his own iteration of a horror narration channel, with his distinctive deep voice adding to the spookiness of his videos. This mystery was only amplified by Corpse’s decision to hide his face in the online sphere.

While Corpse’s YouTube still provides every horror fan with a video playground, his most recent Among Us videos have racked up millions of views, blowing his creepier videos out of the YouTube waters in terms of views.

Focusing on how to win the game as the impostor – even if you have admitted you are the impostor – the three current Among Us videos on his channel have earned him a total of 26.5 million views. That’s hardly a number to smirk at.

Being the impostor in Among Us certainly requires the gift of a silver tongue, something that Corpse clearly possesses. It’ll be interesting to see whether his popularity fades as the game slips out of the mainstream media, but judging by his views that doesn’t seem too likely. After all, if you’re not watching him for Among Us right now is the perfect time of year to sit back, relax and be terrified.
