The title track of the newest single from a member of the Dream SMP, 'Life by the Sea' from Twitch streamer Tubbo is an ode to the perks and pitfalls of being a popular content creator. The song is a collaboration with CG5 and Dan Bull, and features Karsten Belt on a saxophone.
In addition to the obvious perks, there is also the downside of being a 'live' content creator. Being live means you cannot cut and polish your video for the tens of thousands of people who watch you every day. Moreover, you are often subject to censorship when it comes to what you say and how you say it.
Despite all these restrictions, tubbo and his fellow SMP members enjoy a massive fan base that is usually the envy of many a young aspiring YouTuber. This is a large group of followers who will subscribe to your channel, buy you merchandise, and tune in to your live streams.
However, the aforementioned large number can also be daunting at times. For example, Tommyinnit, a popular member of the Dream SMP, attracts over 100,000 live viewers every stream and gets a ton of attention on social media within minutes of his show going live.
The best part of all is that while being online can feel isolating at times, it has its perks too. The aforementioned song is an ode to these perks and it is sure to be a hit with audiences of all ages.
