Stat

Lofi Girl's YouTube video "lofi hip hop radio - beats to relax/study to" has had more than 668 million views. Individuals looking for soothing music, however, have been forced to look elsewhere because the aforementioned clip and another Lofi Girl video were erroneously deleted by YouTube on Sunday after receiving a copyright claim.
