Justin Bieber’s new music video has set a record-breaking number of views on YouTube. “Boyfriend”, which was premiered on Thursday, May 3 night, received more than 8 million views within just 24 hours.
The number posted by Bieber’s video shattered previous record breaker, Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been”, which was released a week prior. As of Sunday morning, “Boyfriend” has garnered more than 13 million hits, thanks partly to the campaign that the heartthrob has launched on Twitter to make “Boyfriend” the most popular video ever posted on YouTube.
