A number of Vevo artist channels were hacked by an anonymous hacker

It seems that some of the Vevo artists’ channels including Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, and Ariana Grande were hacked by one anonymous Twitter user.

Last night, fans were surprised to receive a notification from their favorite artist’s channel thinking that they got a surprise drop of a new song. It turns out that the new content was not for them, nor was it from the artists themselves. The new upload was actually from a suspicious hacker who identified himself as @LOSPELAOSBRO on Twitter. The Twitter user had apparently hacked into some artists’ Vevo affiliated YouTube channels.

The hacker is apparently uploading random music videos to the artist’s YouTube channels, and it seems like the hacker is dedicated to hunting down the channels of different famous singers and rappers as he was able to hack the channels of Harry Styles, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, Lil Nas X, Drake, Eminem, even the channel of the late Michael Jackson, and the list just goes on.

Some fans were quick to notice the suspicious activity and demanded action, especially with how quickly the hacker is in getting a hold of a lot of artists’ channels:

While of course, others took it lightly and added in some humor while dealing with the situation:

Fortunately, the uploaded videos were swiftly taken down and deleted from the hacked channels. Meanwhile, fans are still trying to identify the real person behind the whole chaos and hoping for Vevo to address the situation.
