Miley Cyrus smashes Vevo’s premiere views record

By | Published on Wednesday 11 September 2013


The new Miley Cryus video, quite aptly given the song’s name, has smashed the record previously set by One Direction for ‘most plays on Vevo in the first 24 hours after posting’. It’s quite an achievement that we felt compelled to share with you all on account of it being quite a quiet news day.

The video for ‘Wrecking Ball’ got 19.3 million views on Vevo in the 24 hours after it went live earlier this week, compared to the 12.3 million views 1D’s ‘Best Song Ever’ scored in July, proving once and for all that if One Direction want true success, they should dump the wacky costumes and prosthetics and cavort naked around a building site instead.

When ‘Best Song Ever’ scored its 12.3 million views the boyband actually took the ‘most viewed video in the first 24 hours’ crown off Cyrus, whose video for ‘We Can’t Stop’ previously held the accolade. On Miley’s latest achievement a Vevo spokesman said: “Blah blah blah, who the fuck cares?” Actually Vevo didn’t issue a statement. Lazy Vevo.
