Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda' Video Breaks Vevo Record

Nicki Minaj's much-discussed "Anaconda" video smashed Vevo's record for the most views in 24 hours, racking up 19.6 million clicks in the first day of its release.

The explicit clip is still going strong, having pulled in more than 37 million views since it was unleashed Tuesday.

"Anaconda" tops previous record-holder Miley Cyrus, whose "Wrecking Ball" clip garnered 19.3 million views over 24 hours, beating previous champs One Direction, whose "Best Song Ever" amassed 12.3 million views over the same period.

Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" video was also a record-breaker, posting 10.7 million views in its first 24 hours.

As The Wrap points out, this isn’t Minaj’s first Vevo record: “The rapper previously set Vevo’s most-watched record, twice — her collaboration with Justin Bieber for “Beauty and a Beat” received 10.6 million views in October 2012, and “Stupid Hoe” got 4.8 million viewers in January 2012.”

Minaj will be performing “Anaconda” at MTV’s Video Music Awards on Sunday, August 24 — and if the reports are true, Minaj and Cyrus could be sitting next to each other at the event, so now they’ll have something to talk about. That said, it could get real awkward real quick — especially in light of Cyrus’s spoof of the “Anaconda” cover art.
