Nicki Minaj Music Video Breaks Miley Cyrus VEVO Record

by at . Comments

Well, now we know who is officially Queen of the Twerk.

Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" music video has broken the record for the most views in 24 hours on VEVO, knocking Miley Cyrus and her “Wrecking Ball” from the top spot.

VEVO announced yesterday that "Anaconda" has been 19.6 million times in 24 hours, compared to Cyrus' previous record of 12.3 million video views. 

Earlier this month, Minaj threw some shade at Cyrus after Miley appeared to have mocked Nicki's latest cover art.

Last year, however, Nicki said she admired Miley's ball and said that Miley is soooo cute

So we're pretty sure the rivals are actually friends, though we may find out for sure tomorrow night: Minaj and Cyrus will be seated next to each other at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards.

Upon learning she set a viral record, Minaj Tweeted the only appropriate response: "A$$mazing."

She also made us love her even more by taking an anti-Kim Kardashian stance in explaining the music video's prominent use of large rear ends to ABC News.

"I wanted to reinstate something. Because of the shift in pop culture, even hip-hop men are really glorifying the less curvy body," the recording artists explained. "I wanted to say, ‘Hey ladies, you're beautiful.' Hopefully, this changes things."

Amen, Nicki.
