This badass action-packed video was viewed 20.1 million times within the first 24 hours after it was uploaded on the website on Sunday night.
The young singer has managed to break the record previously held by Nicki Minaj, whose “Anaconda” video had an impressive 19.6 million views.
Taylor recruited an impressive cast of her famous friends to star in the video, which was highly anticipated at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday after the singer teased her fans with amazing stills from the video on her Instagram account two weeks ago.
Sin City Style
The video was directed by Joseph Kahn and it resembles the neo-noir hit movie “Sin City.” It focuses on Taylor’s alter ego called Catastrophe, as she confronts her nemesis Arsyn, played by Selena Gomez. Catastrophe is joined by stars such as Jessica Alba, Karlie Kloss, Ellie Goulding and Cara Delevingne as the gang prepares for the final battle.
This has been an incredible week for Taylor as the singer was also named number one on the Maxim Hot List, while she collected eight of the top prizes at the Billboard Music Awards, as well.
This girl is on fire!
