Lady Gaga failed to recognize Ninja 2 years ago

The music and gaming world has crossed over in few instances but they did not necessarily mesh well back in the day. Before the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, Drake’s appearance on Tyler’s Fortnite stream was the most iconic moment. The stream had generated over 635K concurrent viewers and was the biggest event in the world of gaming. It catapulted Ninja to superstardom and made him a household name.

Lady Gaga, however, had no clue about who he was, even as the streamer continued to gain prominence. In the wake of the pandemic, the landscape of the streaming world and gaming has changed completely. This virus brought the entire world to a standstill, forcing live events and other sporting and music events to be canceled.

It compelled many major musical personalities to turn towards gaming and it served as a mutually beneficial deal. Travis Scott jumped into the industry with his Astronomical concert in Fortnite, and it garnered millions of views.

Similarly, famous rappers like Lil Nas X, Logic, and even MGK also found new ways to entertain the world. Lil Nas X and Logic appeared in Among Us lobbies, while MGK did a collaboration with famous streamer Corpse Husband and it also featured Valkyrae. Safe to say, the landscape of music and gaming has changed drastically in the last couple of years.
