Nicki Minaj‘s “Anaconda” video proved that she’s got buns, hun — and now she’s got a new Vevo viewer record.
The highly-anticipated — and highly salacious — “Anaconda” video earned 19.6 million views in the 24 hours following its midnight Aug. 19 Vevo premiere, the best-ever for the music video site.
In doing so, Minaj bested Miley Cyrus, whose “Wrecking Ball” music video set the previous Vevo record of 19.3 million views in September 2013.
Since the debut, “Anaconda” has been among the top trending topics on social media. In its first 24 hours of release, “#AnacondaVideoOnVevo” delivered 854 million estimated impressions from 145,267 Twitter mentions by 95,412 users.
Ownership of this record is not uncharted territory for Minaj. 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.
Six of Minaj’s videos have been “Certified” by Vevo, getting more than 100 million views.
