Early life[edit]

Berghult graduated in 2014 from Musikmakarna where he studied Songwriting & Music Production.[10]

Career[edit]

Berghult's YouTube channel was created on 25 July 2010.[11] The first video uploaded was an original song titled "Falling in love", and followed this by releasing a mixture of original songs such as "Ugly", "DATING A DOUCHEBAG", and "Numb"; along with covers of Artists such as Maroon 5, OneRepublic, Imagine Dragons, and Taylor Swift. He also created songs with samples of PewDiePie's voice which gained attention.[11]

One Guy, 14 Voices" released in March 2014 was Berghult's first viral YouTube video which garnered wide attention,[12][13] he reprised this video idea producing the video "One Guy, 15 voices" in August 2015 which received widespread media attention,[14][15][16] and Berghult made an appearance on Good Morning America where he impersonated rock stars live.[17] The latest iteration of this series released February 2017 is "One Guy, 43 Voices (with music) - Roomie" Which has over 77.5 million views and is Berghult's most viewed video.[4][18]

On 31st March 2019, Berghult collaborated with PewDiePie and Boyinaband to create the song and music video "Congratulations".[19][20] The song was based on sarcastically congratulating T-Series for surpassing PewDiePie in subscribers while bringing up the corporation's past scandals with Berghult singing the main chorus and being credited for Music & Lyrics and for Beat modification & vocal production.[21][22][23] In April 2019 T-Series sought a court order to remove 'Congratulations' from YouTube, access to the video has now been blocked in India.[24]

In August 2019 Berghult began a new YouTube series in which he attempts to make perceived 'bad' songs into better songs, by Auto tuning poor vocals, giving the songs new beats and adding harmonies and extra vocals. He has done this with several well-known songs such as ‘Flossin’ by The Backpack Kid; 'Monster' by Gabbie Hanna; and 'Friday' by Rebecca Black.[25]
