1. The Legendary Carpool Karaoke with Adele
No one knew James Corden until he shot to fame with Adele’s Carpool Karaoke. In the YouTube video that went viral, hitting about 135.8 million views the duo was seen cooking up some real banter. So, if you have a business idea that involves video streaming; then using a video CMS can prove to be a profitable investment.
The quirky ‘Hello’ singer, sang along to the Spice Girl’s superhit ‘Wannabe’ and then daringly rapped Nicki Minaj’s ‘Monster’ to perfection.

It is composed by a Japanese singer-songwriter – Piko-Taro, who must be now proud of his worldwide fame.

This video shall make you believe, that truly anyone and anything can rise to stardom.
3. The Why You Lying’ Video
I will be completely honest with you. This doesn’t seem to get out of my head. Ever since I saw this video on vine by Nicholas Fraser. In the video, Fraser is seen singing ‘Why you Lying’ and dancing to the R&B beats of Next’s “Too Close”. The video has hit over a million views and garnered thousands of likes. This whacky video had Buzzfeed and The Guardian, write about Nicholas Fraser, the legend himself.
