‘Wrecking Ball’ Vevo Record Devoured By Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’

Miley Cyrus’ epic music video for “Wrecking Ball” held the Vevo record for most views in a single day. Of course, that was before Nicki Minaj introduced the world to “Anaconda.”

If you spend any amount of time online these days, chances are you’ve heard about the rapper’s latest foray into racy entertainment. While “Wrecking Ball” found Cyrus ditching her clothes while riding around on the titular object, Minaj’s clip features a bevy of bottom-heavy ladies shaking their rumps in a jungle setting. Snakes, however, are non-existent.

The idea of watching the former Hannah Montana star swinging around naked on a wrecking ball was apparently quite appealing. Reports claim that the official video for “Wrecking Ball” generated a whopping 19.3 million views in the span of 24 hours. It’s difficult to say if the draw of a nude Miley had any influence on that figure.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the “Wrecking Ball” record was officially knocked aside by Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda.” Since the rapper and her dancers have a bit more to work with in the curves department, the video is much for eye-catching for those who enjoy such things. In fact, the clip amassed 19.6 million views in a single day. As a result, “Wrecking Ball” was officially knocked off its throne.

The folks over at Vevo were so excited about the attention the tune has generated that they tweeted twice about its recent accomplishment.

As Celebuzz points out, Nicki Minaj is certainly no stranger to breaking Vevo records. While Cyrus enjoyed a good run with “Wrecking Ball,” the rapper apparently has absolutely no trouble generating insane numbers.

“This is not the first time Minaj has shattered this particular record: in January 2012, Minaj’s ‘Stupid Hoe’ video was watched 4.9 million times in its first 24 hours, and at the time, that was enough to secure her the number one slot. She also featured on Justin Bieber’s ‘Beauty and the Beat,’ which held the record for a time in 2012.”

Are you at all surprised that the “Wrecking Ball” Vevo record was officially broken by “Anaconda”? Which artist do you think had the stronger video?
