Even in death, David Bowie is making history. The legendary glam rocker broke a Vevo record previously held by Adele.

According to the streaming service which houses 60 Bowie clips, his catalog saw a massive surge after news of his death broke out. On Monday, January 11, he racked up 51 million views. His newest clip, “Lazarus,” generated 11.1 million of those views.

The previous benchmark occurred when Adele released her mammoth “Hello” visual on October 23. That day, her new music video buoyed her entire catalog to 36 million views.

This won’t be the first time David is expected to surpass Adele. Industry experts predict Bowie’s new and final album is expected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200, pushing Adele’s 25 to runner-up slot. If it does, surprisingly, it’ll be his first No. 1 debut of his career.

Adele Breaks Records With ‘Hello’

Everyone expected Adele to make a huge impact when she returned, but not even she could’ve predicted the overwhelming response. Not only did the 27-year-old meet the lofty expectations but she shattered a few records along the way.

According to Hits Daily Double, her soaring ballad “Hello” has sold more than 750,000 downloads since dropping late last week. The previous benchmark was “Right Round” back in 2009 when Flo Rida shifted 636,000 units. With still a few days left before a full week of release, Adele could easily break the million mark.

Nicki Minaj and her ample booty have been kicked to the curb. Up until this week, the 32-year-old rapper held the Vevo record for most views in a 24-hour period. A distinction she’s held since August 2014.

Minaj’s rump-rocking “Anaconda” video generated 19.6 million views immediately after its debut but has now been dethroned. Taylor Swift’s star-studded “Bad Blood” clip received 20.1 million views in just 24 hours. Prior to Minaj, Miley Cyrus and her “Wrecking Ball” visual held the record with 19.3 million.

Congrats to Taylor for yet another accolade. I have to say, I’ve watched “Bad Blood” at least 20 times since it’s premiere this week. It’s not as great as “Blank Space,” but for some reason, I can’t get enough of it. Check it out below if you haven’t seen it yet.

VEVO Reveals The 10 Most Played Music Videos In 2013

Despite all the headlines and chart success, Miley Cyrus received no Grammy nominations. I guess all her antics scared off Academy voters. Here’s a small consolation prize for being snubbed.

VEVO recently released their annual list ranking the ten most played music videos of the year. In no shocker, Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” topped the list. After all, the clip generated 19.3 million views on its first day of release and was the fastest to be certified in VEVO’s history by reaching 100 million views within just six days. As of December 1, the much-spoofed clip stood tall with over 371 million views worldwide. Last year’s winner, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen notched 357 million clicks in 2012.

The most interesting part of the list is how a couple of leftovers from last year made the list. Both Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and will.i.am’s collabo with Britney landed in the Top 10. On the flip side, Katy Perry breaking the Top 5 is equally as impressive, given that “Roar” only premiered just in August. Check out below what other clips were extremely popular in 2013.

A while back, I wrote bout a hilarious video by Tommy Woolridge where he used Taylor Swift lyrics as pickup lines when approached random strangers. All of the funny awkwardness was caught on hidden camera and now, he got an official gig out of it.

A new series on Vevo just debuted today called Vevo Lyric Lines and this first episode is called, “Justin Bieber Lyrics Pick Up Girls?” The romantically-challenged filmmaker can’t get a girlfriend but his idea is to use lyrics from today’s top artists as pick up lines, and document his musical pursuit of love for VEVO!

Here’s what Tommy says about this episode: “I don’t know much about girls, but I know girls love Justin Bieber. I figured maybe at least one of his fans might be interested in me. So I decided to use lyrics from “Beauty and a Beat,” “Boyfriend,” and “Baby” to pick up chicks. Watch to see how it went…” Watch #VEVOLyricLines for his hilariously awkward attempts at wooing women. The first episode is below.

Before I begin, I just wanted to preface this post by saying it’s bit self-indulgent. That said, the aim of our Behind The Cast posts are to give you a better insight to who we are. True? Anyhoo, I just wanted to quickly chat about one of our favorite pastimes while getting ready for a night out on the town.

Usually, Brian and my home is the meeting place before we head out. Most of our friends live nearby and we have a bigger place so it makes sense. Plus we have all the board games, karaoke, a hot tub, booze and most importantly an Apple TV. Combined with the brilliant VEVO app, the Apple TV is my favorite thing in the world. Friends come over all the time and play me their favorite new tracks by simply logging on to our Wi-Fi and playing it on our sound system. With the VEVO app, we can play all our current music video obsessions and our favorite oldies which brings me to this post.

Nothing gets a roomful of homos screaming more than playing music videos from our favorite DIVAS. Yes, we’re a gay cliche. However, we also listen to folk music, old school grunge, rock and hip-hop but there’s something about the ladies that gets us all fired up. I decided to share some of the music videos that seem to get the most airplay at our house while enjoying cocktails. I purposefully left out clips from 2012 since that would make this post extremely long. Without further delay, check out a few oldies and relatively-recent clips we love watching while a tad intoxicated.

Britney Spears is now officially #VEVOCertified after reaching 100 million views on both her “Till The World Ends” music video and “I Wanna Go” music video.

Spears was presented with the two awards by three of her biggest fans. The whole #VEVOCertified event for Britney is documented in a five videos (which I’ve included below). The first video shows her receiving the award, saying that it is probably one of the coolest awards she’s ever received. In the second video, Britney talks about making music videos, while in the third we hear from some of her Britney Superfans. In the fourth video, Britney provides a commentary on her “Till The World Ends” music video, while in the fifth she does the same for “I Wanna Go”.

Watch the videos below for your first Britney fix of the week. As you know, you’ll be seeing her later this week on The X Factor where she’ll debut her new “Scream & Shout” music video with will.i.am.

After a summer of leaks, Kelly Clarkson is finally set to release some solid material for her upcoming fifth studio album, “Stronger”. Recently, she took VEVO behind-the-scenes of her music video shoot for the lead-off single “Mr. Know It All” where Kelly lets us all have it, stating that we really don’t know a thing about her.

In the Justin Francis directed video, Kelly explains how it will showcase different sides of Kelly. One of the prominently featured sections of the video the “wall of doubt” which is a wall covered in newspaper and magazine clippings of things written about Kelly, true, false, hurtful or ridiculous. She states that this a side of her, dealing with it in a sarcastic manner.

What I like about the look of this upcoming video is that it looks simple, laid back and will truly just accentuate the song, rather than take away from it. I personally love the track and cannot wait to hear what the rest of the album has in store. Check out the behind-the-scenes look below.
