I'm curious as to why some artists post on VEVO versus YouTube.
Musical artists in particular.

HI brothertruffle880,
 
when users started uploading in Youtube and sharing music videos, it led to issues of copyright infringement.
In response to this, the music recording companies came up with Vevo. The recording companies readily share their copyrighted music videos on Vevo for individuals to view.

Basically vevo started from Google along with some music companies
(Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group etc) as a way to post music on the web with advertisement
and split the revenue from the adds.
