In a move that could be replicated, Republic Records’ Post Malone restricted video access to You Tube on his latest smash, ‘rockstar,’ while deftly redirecting users to higher-paying platforms.
You Tube is officially the music industry’s most hated streaming platform.

Just a year after it opened, Oprah dubbed her 'the next big thing in fashion', giving her a boost that eventually led to her expansive empire.

In an interview with Complex, Cohen stated that You Tube ‘has had a fundamental misunderstanding with the creative community,’ while offering hope that a fruitful and happy partnership can be forged. But I did have an interest in helping to our [music] industry.
The Complex interview spanned Cohen’s considerable career, dating back to the early days of rap. And this is one of the most powerful and prestigious companies in the world, that have had I think a fundamental misunderstanding with the creative industry.
