Congratulations are in order for Nicki Minaj. Somehow, someway, in ways I can’t figure out, the “Anaconda” rapper has broken VEVO’s record for most watched video in a 24-hour period. The previous record was held by fellow attention magnet Miley Cyrus with the visuals for “Wrecking Ball.” In one day, Nicki’s softcore porn video was watched 19.6 million times to Miley’s 19.3.

If Miley straddling a wrecking ball earns 19.3 million views in a day and Nicki twerking on Drake earns 19.6 million, then a video of an artist straddling Drake will surely break the Internet.
