Miley Cyrus shared her excitement this weekend after smashing a VEVO record, which comes just days after another record previously held by the star was overtaken by One Direction’s latest single ‘Best Song Ever’.
The former Hannah Montana star, racked up 100 million views for her controversial video ‘We Can’t Stop’ which was later confirmed as the fastest time a video has ever reached that amount of views.
The star took to Twitter to boast about her impressive achievement and thank her loyal army of followers.
The 20-year-old wrote: “We got 100 million views?!?!?! Oh my god! We did it! We broke the vevo record! 100 million views in 37 days maaaafakkkkas!!!! Directors cut coming soon! (sic).
Miley has been campaigning in a desperate bid to reach the milestone all week, even promising fans that she would treat them to a new version of the video, if they helped her break the VEVO record.
The mischievous singer raised eyebrows in her sexually suggestive video where she is seen writhing around on a bed bed and ‘Twerking’.
Miley’s achievement comes just days after she lost her crown to British pop band, One Direction, who broke her previous record for the most views in 24 hours.
The music video site had announced last week that Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan – who also appear in drag in the video – had racked up 12.5 million views just a day after its upload.
An official tweet from VEVO read: “The New 24hr Record = 12.3 MILLION. Just….WOW. #Directioners ain’t playin. #BSEVEVORECORD.” The boyband may find it harder to top the UK charts though and it’s been confirmed that as of last Wednesday, they had failed to knock Avicii off the top spot by the time the mid week figures were collated.
Miley Cyrus Sings ‘On My Own’?
A raw recording appears to have leaked via YouTube user ‘LeakableMusics’ of pop star Miley Cyrus singing a stripped down version of the LES MISERABLES tune ‘On My Own’. Is Eponine in her future? There’s no official word on when, where, or why the song was recorded but the track is now making the viral rounds and filled up our inbox this morning as well.
Miley Ray Cyrus, the daughter of country singer and CHICAGO vet Billy Ray Cyrus, rose to prominence as a teen idol after being cast in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana, in which she portrayed the starring character Miley Stewart. Now aged 20, she has attained a total of six Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, and had five RIAA certified albums by the age of 18.
Her most recent single “We Can’t Stop” was released on June 9, and topped iTunes Store singles charts in thirty countries within ten hours of its release. The song has peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100. In doing so, it ties with “Party in the U.S.A.” as Cyrus’ highest-charting single in the country, and additionally became her 39th entry on the chart, including tracks releases as Hannah Montana. Its accompanying music video was released on June 29. On July 26, it surpassed 100 million views, consequentially becoming the fastest video to attain Vevo certification.
