Back in March 2016, he responded to fan inquiries about his removal of fan-uploaded footage in a series of now-deleted tweets, writing “Since YouTube doesn’t pay equitable licensing fees, isn’t that a nonsensical question? Shouldn’t ur concerns b directed at YouTube and not here?”

Today (July 7), several music videos and concert clips have been uploaded to an official YouTube account. Here are five you need to stream right now.
