Video Premiere: Jamie Foxx – Blame It

I’m sure you’ve seen this video already, so I’m posting it to pose a question: is Nahright putting Worldstar Hip Hop on blast for artificially inflating views to boost their revenue?

More people probably saw the Blame It video on OnSMASH than on BET. 30,000 views in 12hours (since 8pm last night.)

Actual numbers^, not inflated (*cough*worldstarflipflop*cough*).
Yeah, I’m sure you got 15,000 views from one minute to the next.

Here’s some background: last weekend, Sandrarose.com received an email from a Warner Bros. executive asking us to check out one of his artist’s videos on WSHH. He boasted that the video garnered over 300,000 views in just 24 hours.

But oddly enough, the comments under that video were all calling out WSHH for artificially inflating the view count on that same video. Then a member of the Hip Hop Ads group on Yahoo.com noticed that when he refreshed the page, the view count for that video jumped by 30,000 views.

Thanks to Dr. Drew at Drew Reports for the tip!
