Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg held the record for having the most subscribers on YouTube since 2013. However, his unchallenged run at the top of the rankings has finally ended as T-Series, an Indian record label has managed to surpass him. The PewDiePie vs T-Series battle continues to get intense, but it now appears that PewDiePie is out of the competition!
Let us take a closer look at the rivalry between the two YouTube giants and see if there’s any chance for PewDiePie to recover.
PewDiePie vs T-Series: Has PewDiePie Lost The Battle?
PewDiePie is now lagging behind T-Series by as many as 2.7 Million subscribers! This is a massive number by every count and the first time that such a sizable distance between the two channels has appeared in favor of T-Series.
Given that Kjellberg is a content creator while T-Series owns a large chunk of Bollywood music, it appears that it will be hard for PewDiePie to return to the popularity and beat T-Series ever again. However, releasing controversial tracks like Bitch Lasagna and the Congratulations Diss Track can help Kjellberg grow his subscriber base once again.
Reasons Behind The Surge in Popularity of T-Series
One of the biggest reasons as to why T-Series has managed to surpass the subscriber count of PewDiePie is because a lot more Indians suddenly have access to mobile internet than ever before!
The entry of telecom service provider Reliance Jio has caused this major shift in the momentum in the Indian markets and caused a surge in Indian content.
