Streamers argue that hundreds and thousands of people who watch their streams get to listen to these songs and so they believe the benefits are mutual. Therefore, banning those who share an artist’s work is highly unfair. Thus, previously, various artists, including LilyPichu, T-Pain, and even Drake, have permitted streamers to use their music.

There are still many music labels that hunt down content creators using their music. They claim all the revenue for the videos and even strike their channels. However, in a recent tweet, Corpse Husband said he has been asking music labels to refrain from this.

Corpse Husband has the support of major creators

Creators like MrBeast and Karl Jacobs replied to Corpse’s tweet supporting his views. They justified how they only want to use the music fairly and do not intend to profit from other artists. MrBeast argued that millions of viewers who might have never heard an artist would now look them up if they hear the track from the favorite streamer.

Karl and TimTheTatman hailed Corpse Husband for speaking his mind out loud and standing up for other creators. Karl also joked about how he’d read these words in a bible somewhere.

Various songs have blown up following the rise of Tik Tok that people would have never heard before. Clearly, the current relationship between music labels and content creators needs improvement.

Corpse is ruling the music industry

Corpse’s words gain more legitimacy seeing he himself is a part of both industries. Being an insider, he knows the struggles of streamers as well as the privileges of music labels. His single ‘E-GIRLS ARE RUINING MY LIFE’ has crossed 100 million plays on Spotify, making him more popular than most mainstream musicians.

Corpse Husband also teamed up with Machine Gun Kelly to release a new single called ‘DAYWALKER!‘ The song has already crossed 2 million views on YouTube at the time of writing. Moreover, with the help of his friends and the internet, Corpse also got a billboard in Times Square, New York, to advertise his track.

Hopefully, with all the influence these popular streamers and content creators possess, there might be a change coming soon. Until then, one will have to rely on those who make their music copyright-free.
