Adele continues to smash records with her recent global monster ‘Hello’.
This time around, she’s smashes a YouTube record, with the track’s official video breaking through the billion viewer mark earlier today Australian time. But incredibly, it’s taken only 88 days to get there, making it the fastest video ever to hit the billion view mark.
That’s a staggering 71 days less than the second fastest – Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ – which set the previous record of 159 days back in 2012.
Wiz Khalifa’s ‘See You Again’ achieved the feat in 186 days, Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ did it in 238 days and Major Lazer’s ‘Lean On’ surpassed the mark in 292 days.
‘Hello’ smashes the record just days after Adele’s album ’25’ hit the eight times platinum mark in Australia, blasting through 560,000 copies locally within eight short weeks.
