The music video for Ariana Grande’s hit “thank u, next” came out yesterday and has already set new records for YouTube and Vevo. It’s been a little over 24 hours since the video came out and, at time of publishing, it’s sitting pretty at 55 million views.
Before it even reached 24 hours, however, it had already become the most-watched video on YouTube in a 24 hour period. It also broke the same record on Vevo.
p.s. we set a new @vevo record. that's wild. i love u. thank u.

The record was previously held by BTS and their song “Idol,” and “Look What You Made Me Do” by Taylor Swift before that.
