You can play a little bit with emotions here, do something controversial, Put a less famous singer’s photo at the front and put a text on it, and say something like, “ Justin Biber is better than Drake”. In your case, it will be the singer of the song that you are playing.

This will go completely crazy. These types of videos do so well. But you will also have to put in some work too to make it extra viral.

Because it is controversial, you will get tons of comments and full watch time. Now, reply to each comment after 30 minutes. This way people will come back to your video to see your response and the video will play again, giving you one extra view.
