Sorry Taylor! Ms Swift no longer holds THIS record thanks to Adele

You might as well get used to reading articles like this one as Adele has already broken the first of many records with her new album, 25

The British singer beat Taylor Swift's VEVO record for the most views during the first 24 hours.

Her new music video, Hello, achieved a massive 27.7 million streams in the first 24 hours of going online. 

Unfortunately for Taylor, Adele smashed her record by seven million hits, with Ms Swift's Bad Blood only reaching 20.1 million views. 

Before that, Nicki Minaj held the record with Anaconda, which achieved 19.6 million hits on it's first day.

Adele is set to hit a new height in chart records this week after analysts predicted she could claim the biggest ever first-week digital sales for a song.

The heart wrenching single has already sold over 450,000 copies in America, edging closer to current record holder Flo Rida with his song Right Round (WHY that song is in first place, who knows?!) which sold 636,000 downloads in it's first week back in 2009.
