    Taylor Swift's 'ME!' Tops YouTube Record for Most-Watched Video in 24 Hours by a Solo or Female Artist

    Taylor Swift topped multiple YouTube records with the debut of her new music video for "ME!" featuring Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie.

    According to a release from YouTube sent on Saturday (April 27), Swift's "ME!" video clocked in a record-breaking 65.2 million views within the first 24 hours of its release on April 26.

    YouTube confirms that this feat makes Swift the solo and female artist with the biggest 24-hour debut on YouTube to-date.

    While her numbers top solo artist Ariana Grande's previous record of over 55 million views for "Thank U, Next," K-pop group BTS still holds the overall biggest YouTube 24-hour view record, with "Boy With Luv" featuring Halsey reaching more than 74 million views in that timeframe -- making "ME!" the the second biggest 24-hour debut of any video to be released on the streaming platform.

    The "ME!" video marks the most impressive 24-hour debut ever for Swift, trailed by the 43.2 million views her "Look What You Made Me Do" video notched during its first day. "ME!" also received more likes in its first day than any of Swift's earlier music video releases.

    Swift currently counts more than 33 million subscribers on her official YouTube channel, which makes her one of just eight musicians who have over 30 million subscribers.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.
    Do we settle for the world as it is, or do we work for the world as it should be?

    Isn't #1 guaranteed in the US?
    Old town road (2 versions combined) did 2.8 million in 1 day on US spotify during the last update. ME! did a bit under 10 million on 1st day, even if we take a conservative estimate of 35% thats approx 3.5 million. It will obviously decrease but still... ME! is outselling it by more than twice the amount on itunes and is obliterating on youtube. The only advantage it has is radio, where ME! is a third of the audiance of OTR. Doesn't seem like enough to block #1.

    They shaved off 25% of the streams. Taylor buying streams and views left and right.

    The one from Spotify Charts. It takes manipulation into account like people playing it on repeat for the whole day probably it debuted with 3.5m in the US and 2.9 m were the total streams for Old Town Road. If its new total gain is 6.2m (-4m) for today it will probably be 5.Xm for the global charts and already less than Old Town Road in the US. As I said I see this falling further as the week goes on, so it really needs amazing sales as well to go #1

    So the other day, when Medellin had different numbers as well on the desktop/app version and Spotifycharts (at least 20%, we don’t know how much more as it was out of Top 200) and I posted what Spotify says about it on their web, you said it didn’t make sense and that it was because of the time zones differences... but here it’s because “Taylor is buying streams”? Not even because some fans are streaming like crazy or faking streams but because she’s paying it?

    You already said she’s buying views on YouTube and that it’s embarrassing and all that in pages 1 and 2 as well.
    I see a little bit of trolling and baiting... So cut it out, please.

    Madonna didn't have 30% of her streams removed from YT also. And this is something I would very much like to discuss.

    ^
    You already said (thrice) what you think about the YouTube numbers. We got it.
    But it’s the Spotify numbers what we’re talking about now. And you should make up your mind... It can’t be time zones for one artist but buying streams for another.

    And my view, as a moderator, is that all your comments in this thread so far, all of them, went in the same direction. So, again, cut it out, please.

    100k isn't the same as 3m streams, right? What are the other big discrepancies before? Is this normal or unusual? You have noted in another thread that Charts numbers are always smaller than the ones on the counter and gave reasons. I didn't follow Spotify numbers closely before and that was an interesting thing. What got me bothered then and what I said was that it doesn't make sense for them to have a set of two various numbers and that it's possible that part of the difference comes from the time zones, which you personally agreed with that a part of it.

    But time zones or not this is a really big discrepancy.

    Thank you for being on my back. You don't like me, I don't like you. That's fine. Next time I hope you vigorously step into the thread you yourself read and warn when other users actually wreak havoc instead of staying silent for days.

    I never said I didn’t like you... thanks for making it clear you don’t like me. I’m being patient and asking you politely to please stop that behavior you clearly had in all your posts in this thread. Not giving you an infraction or asking for your ban. If you think there are other occasions when mods should have done something and they didn’t, report it or contact the admins.
    If you want to keep on discussing about this, do it via PM.

    Regarding the streams on Spotify, it was mentioned on the previous page 7 Rings had 12,214,337 on Spotify and then 8,554,577 on Spotifycharts.com. 30% less.
    You read that. But you didn’t say she was buying streams left she right.
    You read that. So you know it’s a common discrepancy when it comes to these huge figures.

    And 100k (it was actually more, but ok) and 3M are the same when it comes to the difference of % to the total.

    ^I actually don't remember reading those Ariana numbers .

    Thanks for pointing it out. Well cool then. Guess 20-30% off on Spotify is normal after all. You could've just point that out (again) from the start without the drama TBH.

    streams seem low but decent but the You Tube numbers are astronomic just over 91 million in 60 Hours it's definitely going to be the biggest streamed you tube Video in one week in the history of the service

    So without that deal, US radio stations wouldn't play the song although it's the highly anticipated lead single of Taylor Swift's upcoming album?

    They just wouldn't play it every hour on the hour which is what they do with a radio deal.
