The single, released after her much publicized breakup with fiance Pete Davidson, has also topped the Billboard charts for three weeks, giving Grande the biggest hit of her seven-year career.
Vevo said the Thank U, Next video, in which Grande recreates scenes from popular women’s empowerment movies Legally Blonde and Mean Girls, reached 100 million views in under four days following its Nov. 30 release.
The previous record was held by British singer Adele’s Hello comeback music video in 2015, which took five days to reach 100 million views, Vevo said.
The video also features cameo appearances from Legally Blonde actress Jennifer Coolidge, singer Troye Sivan and Kris Jenner, the matriarch of the Kardashian reality TV show family.
Thank U, Next was released just three weeks after Grande and Davidson, whose engagement in June after dating for less than two months became a celebrity media sensation, split up in October.
Grande, who has 137 million Instagram followers, sings with affection of Davidson and another ex-boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller who died in Los Angeles in September after a drug overdose, but she also sings that she has found a new love – herself.
Ariana recently pleaded her fans to be ‘gentler’ with Pete Davidson after her ex-fiance admitted he was being ‘bullied’ by trolls.
Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, the songstress revealed she ‘cares deeply’ about Pete’s health and insisted she doesn’t endorse any behaviour but ‘forgiveness and positivity’.
Alongside a screenshot of Pete’s statement about the horrific trolling he has received, Ariana penned: ‘I know u already know this but I feel I need to remind my fans to please be gentler with others.
‘I really don’t endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity. i care deeply about pete and his health. i’m asking you to please be gentler with others, even on the internet. (sic)’
Ariana also told her followers she ‘will always have irrevocable love’ for her ex, and said anyone getting a different impression from her recent music has ‘missed the point’.
