The release of Nicki Minaj's booty-filled "Anaconda" video surprisingly didn't crash the Vevo servers -- but it did break a record.

VEVO announced that, during the first 24 hours of being online, Nicki's super sexy viral visual got 19.6 million views, breaking a record previously held by Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball."

The video for "Anaconda," which samples Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back," debuted on Wednesday and continues to rack up big numbers. As of this morning, it was nearing 60 million. That will undoubtedly grow after the Barb performs it on tonight's (Sunday's) MTV Video Music Awards.
