YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has secured another major victory over T-Series, reaching a whopping 93 million subscribers on April 4 after releasing his ‘Congratulations’ diss track.

While T-Series appeared to take the lead in late March, the song quickly boosted PewDiePie back to the top, and now the race is back on – much to his amusement.

PewDiePie discussed his surprising victory during a game of ‘You Laugh, You Lose’ just ahead of his latest milestone achievement, where he called the development “the comeback of the century.”

“It’s ironic how we made the ‘Congratulations’ song to wrap up the meme, to stop the meme,” he said of the situation. “We finally did it… the comeback of the goddamn century.”

His statement rings true; things truly seemed hopeless for the YouTube king, after T-Series scored a convincing lead over PewDiePie for a 5-day period.

Flare TV, YouTubePewDiePie reached 93 million subscribers ahead of T-Series, with a whopping 300,000 subscriber gap in his favor.

Sitting at over 100,000 subscribers above PewDiePie, T-Series caused fans to scramble in an effort to retrieve his crown – but PewDiePie’s very own diss track handled the situation for him, with the YouTuber now soaring above his Bollywood nemesis.

Why is T-Series growing so quickly?

T-Series’ sudden surge in subscribers can be credited to the country’s recent access to Wi-Fi, thanks to mobile network provider Jio.

Jio’s services provide citizens with affordable internet in rural areas, meaning that more of India’s population is online than ever before – inciting a mass subscriber increase toward T-Series’ YouTube channel.

T-Series “exposed” by PewDiePie

Despite the label’s success, PewDiePie’s ‘Congratulations’ diss track dug up some serious dirt against the company, claiming that it had begun its business by providing pirated songs – and even linked CEO Bhushan Kumar to the Indian mafia.

That’s not all; PewDiePie likewise mentioned a sexual harassment case against Kumar, which was later withdrawn in early 2019 after the claimant admitted the allegations were false.

Despite these claims, T-Series continues to thrive, thanks to several of its videos going viral in the process – but PewDiePie’s dedicated fanbase are making sure he reaches 100 million subs ahead of the label in the meantime.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
