Ariana Grande's Thank U, Next bests Adele to fastest 100 million views
Ariana Grande's breakup anthem Thank U, Next has become the fastest music video to reach 100 million views, video hosting service Vevo said on Tuesday (Dec 4).
The single, released after the 25-year-old singer's much publicised breakup 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's empowerment movies Legally Blonde (2001) and Mean Girls (2004), 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.
The video also features cameo appearances from Legally Blonde actress Jennifer Coolidge, singer Troye Sivan and Kris Jenner, the matriarch of the Kardashian reality TV show family.
