BLACKPINK believed to have cheated again to gain more views in YouTube

USER CONTENT

Netizens were quick to notice BlackPink changing their video category to "People & Blogs" instead of "Music" for their latest music video "Ddu-Ddu-Ddu-Ddu".

According to Youtube guidelines, videos under "People & Blogs " category need not watched till the end to count as a view and the category's algorithm has few restrictions resulting in not-strictcount of views as needed for a music product.

This caused confusion among netizens as to why BlackPink keeps changing their video category frequently and they demand a proper explanation from YG Entertainment.

The same issue arose fews days back as the category for "Ddu-Ddu-Ddu-Ddu" music video kept changing.

Is there an official source on that ? Because according to Google, that info doesn't appear anywhere. The only info I found about a category having any effect on a video, is where it's recommended and nothing about it changing how the views are counted as real , that's about it. I, for one would appreciate an official source on that.
