What If Prince Had A Youtube Channel?

Just think about it...

If Prince had his own Youtube channel, I'm pretty sure he'd have a couple million subs pretty quick [he'd probably have at least ten million subs after that, etc]. Then he'd quickly have a partnership with Youtube & make money off of posting his live performances & maybe even give some studio exclusives. I'm pretty sure he'd disable adding comments & likes too, so he'd never have to respond to anyone. And hey, at least it would be better than someone just bootlegging his shit & putting out there for free...

Of course he'd get into a big fight with Youtube over profits with his partnership [I wouldn't expect anything to run smoothly with Prince whatsoever lol ], but hey, at least it's an idea....

What are your thoughts on this one?????

lol I'm for certain it wouldn't happen. But I believe it would give him more exposure to younger audiences & he'd make $ without having to do much. If he had at least 10 million subs, he'd make some really decent money too...

Definitely. I'm also from the ''younger audience'', most young people don't know very much about Prince, too bad..

Based on what data? The huge letdown every online venture of his has been after 1995?

Well, being that it cost nothing to sub to a youtube page, I'm pretty sure people wouldn't be that mad this time. People were really mad at the fact that they paid for a subscription & didn't get much in the end....

lol of course not. Which is why it won't ever happen. I still think he's missing out though not having one.....He would have less problems selling records. Prince just may be WAAYYYY too ahead of his time now that I think about it.....

That would be cool. And a nice venue to do something with those countless videos that he wasted money on so that they could remain locked up in his vault.

lol no, think about it. If youtube was around at the time Prince was embrassing the Internet, he might own a piece of it by now. When Prince was on the internet, everybody else wasn't there yet [when it comes to selling music online]. Now that's almost the only way nowdays, & Prince thinks "The Internet is Dead"....

I don't think so. it's free to sub. I've subbed to channels just because I like one video of someones. Imagine if Prince posted all of his old music videos in great quality on his channel. That alone would get him quite a few subs.....

Even if such a channel provided unreleased material, unseen video etc, who is going to care enough to subscribe? Hardcores? Yes, casual fans? probably but not definitely.

I don't think that he would get over a million people interested in such a thing if i'm honest, but then what do I know?

If Rebecca Black & 50 Tyson have over a million subs, I highly doubt prince would have trouble getting subs... lol

people here doubting he would get a million subs

YOUTUBE is FREE an his channel would have everything from PURPLE RAIN to KISS . to SHH

It would easily draw in a million plus subs ..

its free .... maybe NPG MUSIC club didnt have a million plus .. but thats cos lots of fans heard about it an hardlUTUy any joined .. because they dont like PAYING .. when BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN an every fucker else had free websites .. with regular uploads of vids .. etc etc

some other artists were giving away free downloads .... alot of people are also reluctent to buy anything over the internet .. myself included ...

IF ITS FREE .. then everyne is there ....

it aint just one album an one song,style .. it should have scores of vids up from different times an different styles .. alot of people like PURPLE RAIN but dont like MUSICOLGY .. AN vice versa ... prince has a song 4 weveryone ... so if everything is up .. its a big NET an will catch alot of FISH

An anytime someone sees him on tv .. an digs him .. they wiill YOUTUBE him ...

whenever i want to hear some new music ...i make some - prince '99'

Prince had a Youtube channel. It only had 2 or 3 videos on it though. One was Chocolate Box with Q-Tip in it.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Oh, and there was that dumb girl who got a video from the Montreux performance. Whatever happened to her? Wasn't she also something semi-official?
