Nicki Minaj’s booty has broken a record. When the rap star finally dropped the anticipated video for her single, “Anaconda,” it spread like a wild fire… and racked up 19.6 million views in just 24 hours, setting a new VEVO record.
“WE BROKE THE RECORD BABY!!!!! Anaconda Video 19.6 million views in 24 hrs!!!!” tweeted Nicki Friday (Aug. 22)
The previous 24-hour record was held by Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball”, which received 19.3 million views in September 2013.
Since its release, “Anaconda” has garnered over 41 million views on Youtube, and features Nicki putting her best asset front and center: her booty. Her YMCMB labelmate Drake even makes a cameo, getting a lap dance from Nicki as well.
The Sir Mix-A-Lot-sampled song will appear on her upcoming album The Pinkprint, due this fall.
