Because now she has bad blood and one new accolade.
+ Props to her 17 friends.
Taylor Swift’s much-hyped video for “Bad Blood” has already earned its first accolade and this time it’s coming straight from Vevo. On Thursday (May 21), the outlet confirmed that the pop titan broke the record for the most views on a music video during a 24-hour duration with a whopping 20.1 million views. Get em, Tay Tay!
“Bad Blood” stole the title the title from Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda,” which claimed the top spot back in August 2014 for its 19.6 million views within a day.
News of Swift’s single success comes with great timing. Just last night, she kicked off the US leg of her 1989 world tour in Bossier City, Louisiana, and based on her shots on Instagram, it’s safe to say she enjoyed her big night.
