When it comes to music videos, there's always a battle to get the most views. And now, there's a new champ on the books.

Nicki Minaj's new video, "Anaconda," just broke Vevo's record for the most views in a 24-hour period, beating out Miley Cyrus' spot with "Wrecking Ball." ("Anaconda" got 19.6 million views, whereas "Wrecking Ball's" record was 19.3 million.)

Even Sir Mix-a-Lot, the MC who Minaj sampled in her latest hit, had nothing but good things to say about the video. But we can't say that we're exactly surprised!

Naturally, Minaj was overjoyed with the new record, and took to Twitter to express her excitement:

 

But she's still got another one of Cyrus' records to beat: "Wrecking Ball" was also the fastest to reach 100 million views—in just six days—on the site, so let's wait and see how "Anaconda" is doing a few days from now.

Congrats, Miss Minaj!
