YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s ‘Bitch Lasagna’ diss track toward Bollywood label T-Series is the most viewed video on his channel – but the Swede may have topped his last song with a new hit.

Kjellberg uploaded another diss track titled ‘Congratulations’ on March 31, nearly five days after T-Series surpassed him in subscribers on March 26.

As suggested by the title, PewDiePie’s song mockingly “congratulated” T-Series on their victory, placing emphasis on the label’s status as a mega corporation and even claiming that they’d gained their success with shady business practices.

“…All it took/ was a massive corporate entity with every song in Bollywood,” PewDiePie rapped. “Now you’re at number one, hope you did nothing wrong/ Like starting your business by selling pirated songs.”

PewDiePie went on to jokingly accuse T-Series’ CEO, Bhushan Kumar, of tax evasion and having ties with the Indian mafia, later telling a story in which the label sent him a cease and desist letter for defamation.

Even popular YouTuber MrBeast made a surprise appearance toward the end of the video, likely due to his massive contributions toward PewDiePie’s channel with his citywide ad campaign and viral Super Bowl stunt.

PewDiePie’s latest diss track was made with the help of YouTubers ‘Boyinaband’ and ‘Roomie,’ who gave fans a behind the scenes look into the song’s creation with their own respective videos on the topic.

According to Boyinaband, T-Series’ had actually sent PewDiePie a cease and desist letter, although he made sure to save the meat of the story for Kjellberg to discuss in a later video.

While ‘Bitch Lasagna’ sits at over 169 million views, it’s not out of place to say that ‘Congratulations’ will follow a similar pattern; however, unlike Kjellberg’s other major videos about T-Series, his subscriber count continues to falter, with T-Series pulling ahead by over 110,000 subscribers as of March 31.

FlareTV, YouTubeAs of March 31, T-Series sits at over 100,000 subscribers above PewDiePie, marking a wide divide between their channels that has PewDiePie saying, “Congratulations.”

Despite his apparent loss, some PewDiePie fans refuse to accept defeat, and are even formulating a last-minute ‘International PewDiePie Day’ campaign in an attempt to squash T-Series for good.

Who is Granny? The rising Twitch star who streams as a grandma

Twitch is home to some pretty outlandish personalities, but none may be as unique as the rising streamer known only as Granny.

Dressed in a bright white wig, oversized glasses, and attire that you could have sworn you’ve seen the elderly wear, Granny takes the character to the extreme.

If you thought the outfit or persona was the limit of the character, think again. Just like how Dr Disrespect streams from his legendary “arena,” Granny has her own broadcast center of sorts.

From Granny’s house to Twitch

Her streams begin, amusingly enough, with an old house in a green meadow surrounded by rainbows, flowers and chirping birds.

After introducing herself, talking to viewers from inside the big pink home that looks like it’s ripped from either Lord of the Rings or Teletubbies, the gameplay kicks off.

What makes Granny’s choice of games so hilarious is that she’s made a habit of streaming titles such as Dead by Daylight, which are the complete opposite of the happy-go-lucky nature of the intro.

Fans are absolutely loving it. Since starting the stream, Granny has amassed nearly 30,000 followers and is growing on other platforms such as YouTube.

Climbing the Twitch ranks

Speaking with Dexerto, the entertainer refused to break character, further, cementing the concept that this was a grandma streaming on the Amazon-owned platform.

Granny claims it all began when she was working for a finance firm in New York City for three years and was beginning to feel worn out.

“Right around that time, Red Dead Redemption 2 came out and I found a huge comfort being immersed in that world while I took time to recover and figure out my next steps,” the streamer explained.

“When Red Dead Online was released I started to make friends on the proximity voice chat and they told me I should try my hand at streaming. In February 2019 I moved to New Zealand to go all-in on starting a Twitch channel, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.”

That said, she does have plans to return to New York at some point in 2021, so fans should be sure to be on the lookout for that.

While the climb up the Twitch ranks has been a journey since it first began in January of 2019, the streamer does have a few favorite moments.

“A couple of exciting milestones along the way have been Trixie Mattel and TPAIN discovering the stream,” she happily noted. “They love joining in now and again to help repair the ice cream machines in Dead By Daylight.”

Going into 2021, Granny is definitely going to be one of the streamers to watch out for, especially if she continues to get noticed by some larger members of the community.
