The New Paper - - LIFESTYLE -

Ari­ana Grande’s break-up an­them Thank U, Next has be­come the fastest mu­sic video to reach 100 mil­lion views, video-host­ing ser­vice Vevo said on Tues­day.

The sin­gle, re­leased af­ter the 25-year-old US singer’s much­pub­li­cised split from 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 video, in which Grande recre­ates scenes from pop­u­lar women’s em­pow­er­ment movies Legally Blonde and Mean Girls, 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.

“100 mil al­ready. sheesh... thank u, every­body. we love u n are so ex­cited,” Grande tweeted on Tues­day.

Thank You, Next was re­leased just three weeks af­ter Grande and US co­me­dian David­son, who got en­gaged in June af­ter dat­ing for less than two months, parted ways in Oc­to­ber.

Grande, who has 137 mil­lion In­sta­gram fol­low­ers, sings with af­fec­tion of David­son and an­other ex-boyfriend, US rap­per Mac Miller, who died in Septem­ber af­ter a drug over­dose, but she ref­er­ences that she has found a new love – her­self.
