NBA YoungBoy is one of the most well-known and contentious rappers in Hip-Hop right now. According to recent reports, YoungBoy Never Broke Again has now exceeded 10 billion views on YouTube, and he has been the platform’s #1-ranked artist every week in 2022.
YoungBoy Never Broke Again has an obvious grasp on YouTube. He has spent the last few years at the top of the platform’s artist rankings, gaining the most of his exposure there. YoungBoy earns nearly $17 million annually via YouTube, according to a recent report. With that in mind, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to find that YB has been voted as the top artist on YouTube every week in the first quarter of this year.
YoungBoy has been YouTube’s #1-ranked artist for the full year of 2022, ending up in the top spot every single week since January 1, according to reports. YoungBoy has previously topped artists like Post Malone, DaBaby, and others in the rankings, more than doubling their records all the way back in 2019.
This appears to be a recurring theme for YoungBoy, who certainly has a huge YouTube following. He also rewards his followers there, frequently releasing new music on the platform before it is made available for streaming. While that method might not work for every artist, YoungBoy has done an amazing job building a YouTube following and manages to keep his core fan base engaged.
