Twenty-Five-year-old American pop singer, Ariana Grande, has broken a new record with her new breakup song ‘Thank U, Next’ which is now the fastest music video to reach 100 million views, according to video hosting service Vevo on Tuesday.
The record released after her much publicised separation from fiance, Pete Davidson, also topped the Billboard charts for three weeks, giving Grande the biggest hit of her seven-year career.
Vevo in a statement said that the ‘Thank U, Next’ video, in which Grande recreates scenes from popular women’s empowerment movies Legally Blonde and Mean Girls, reached 100 million views in under four days following its Nov. 30 release.’
‘The previous record was held by British singer Adele‘s Hello comeback music video in 2015, which took five days to reach 100 million views,’ Vevo said.
‘100 mil already. sheesh … thank u, everybody. we love u n are so excited,’ Grande tweeted after the announcement was made.
