A major disaster contained on time!

In the early hours of Thursday, 10th April, the VEVO platform came under attack by hackers who targeted major official artists’ channels, one of which happened to be Luis Fonsi’s.

 

People began noticing early Thursday morning that music videos from some of the most popular artists in the world — including Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito”, the most-watched video on YouTube Vevo were taken down. The videos were replaced with messages from hackers and eventually were taken offline while Vevo investigated.

Vevo is a video platform that’s owned by the three biggest record companies in the United States: Warner Music Group, Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment.

Unlike YouTube where anyone can upload contents to, VEVO is specifically run by administrators who upload videos to the website and the Vevo YouTube channel.

This also isn’t the first time Vevo has been hacked. Vevo was hacked in September 2017, where roughly “3.12TB worth of internal files” were published online, according to Gizmodo. The attack was coordinated by OurMine, the same group behind the BuzzFeed and TechCrunch hacks, as well as that of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts.

That attack, which targeted the company’s internal documents, didn’t affect YouTube either. “Despacito” is currently the most-watched video on YouTube, with more than 5.02 billion views since its debut in January 2017.

It’s easy to look at Vevo and YouTube as being one company. Vevo accounted for “50 million unique views on YouTube in May 2013, after purchasing a 7 percent stake in the company in the same year, which is why Vevo videos are syndicated on YouTube.

Vevo said in their own statement. “We are working to reinstate all videos affected and our catalogue to be restored to full working order. We are continuing to investigate the source of the breach.”

Many of the videos targeted in the original attack have been re-uploaded to YouTube at this time — including “Despacito.”

YouTube is set to launch Official Artist Channels that bring together all artists’ contents from different YouTube channels into one place. The channel automatically programs their music catalogues on two new shelves, including music videos, songs, and albums.

Music is hugely popular on YouTube and artists with VEVO-branded channels are among the most-followed channels on the platform. Now, YouTube is about to consolidate the millions of subscribers to VEVO’s channels — as well as those on “unofficial” artist-related channels — under a single account for each artist.

An Official Artist Channel is not a new channel—it’s a new layout that can be used on any channel that’s owned and operated by an artist, their manager or their label. The sections on an official artist channel will include Featured Video, Artist-Curated content, Channel Layout, Official Music, Albums, and customizable sections.

As an artist, what does this mean for you? According to YouTube, uniting your subscribers under one channel means you have more reach to promote your latest releases. It also gives you (and your team if you’ve got one) control over your presence and the opportunity to engage directly with your fans through YouTube features like community posts, mobile live and ticketing. Anyone who has had a chance to use both platforms will definitely agree that YouTube is more user-friendly than VEVO. 

 

VEVO Channel for Artist

VEVO channels will still be accessible via the advanced channel filter in search, and they will also be available if a user is specifically searching for the Vevo channel. In addition, if an artist has only a Vevo channel (and not an Official Artist Channel), the Vevo channel will still appear in search.

 

Official Artist Channel

As a user, if you’re currently subscribed to an unofficial artist channel, you will soon be subscribed to their Official Artist Channel and your subscription to any unofficial artist channels will become inactive. The Official Artist Channel is a single destination that gives you access to an artist’s full body of work, so you’ll now receive notifications solely from the official artist channel whenever new videos are uploaded or when an artist wants to send a message to their fans.

The roll-out of these channels will begin taking effect on the platform in coming weeks.

How to get an Official Artist Channel

To be eligible for an Official Artist Channel, make sure you already have a YouTube Channel that’s owned and operated by you as an artist, your manager, or your label, and have at least 3 music videos on YouTube. YouTube will contact you as soon your channel has been upgraded to an Official Artist Channel.

Watch out for more updates!

Sultry songstress Ezi Emela turns it up a few notches for her new single “Confam It” which is set to light up the dance floor with a hard hitting base and cheeky lyrics.

With renown music producer “Omeiza” on the beat, this song is tipped to be an anthem for the ladies, bringing the question all women want to ask when that particular guy begins to “speak all that grammar”.

Her single “Broken” released in April this year, was well received, with the beautiful lyrics verbalising a time she felt lost and vulnerable.

Ezi now plans to lighten up the mood and give us all a hit banger to finish off our summer with. Working with talented producer Omeiza on both of these tracks, has allowed Ezi to showcase her vocal ability and where she’s heard to be powerful, sultry and playful.

Promoting the “actions speak louder than words” proverb on her new track ‘Confam It‘, Ezi hopes to give her fans an insight into her sassy personality. The song has been highly anticipated since it previewed online with music lovers and at the Afrobeat Live show hosted by DJ Abrantee earlier in the summer.

Ezi Emela is committed to giving the fans the music they want to hear.

Speaking recently to ABN TV, Ezi said:

I love Afro-pop, but I also love other genres, so I’m going to definitely try and merge them together.”

Check out her official new single “Confam It” and stay tuned as she guarantees more fabulous music this year!
