Ariana Grande beats Adele’s fastest viewed record

Ariana Grande’s break-up anthem ‘thank u, next’ has become the fastest music video to reach 100 million views, video hosting service Vevo said.

The single, released after the 25-year-old singer’s much publicised break-up with fiance Pete Davidson, has also topped the Billboard charts for three weeks, giving Grande the biggest hit of her seven-year career.

Vevo said the ‘thank u, next’ video, in which Grande recreates scenes from popular women empowerment movies, Legally Blonde and Mean Girls, reached 100 million views in under four days following its release on 30th November. 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.
