New Beginnings

Why doesn't Madonna have as many YouTube views as her contemporaries?

Recommended Posts

I think there are 2 reasons.

1- One is that Warner Bros keep moving her videos to the extent most old songs have more views under their unofficial uploads. 

2- Madonna is more famous than her songs. Like Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston are famous for few of their iconic videos, I am sure there are many more people who know those songs than Carey or Houston. It's the exact opposite for Madonna. Everybody knows who Madonna is even if they do not know a single song of her.

This is just absolutely insane to me. I think if you’re involved with and are a fan of pop culture and pop music then you should know at least a couple of songs by veteran pop artists. I find it so strange when people say they’ve never heard a Madonna song.

Do her videos really get removed that often? I've never noticed, and I doubt they'd remove the ones with lots of views.

I'd never heard a Madonna sung Madonna song until 2015 to be honest.
