Apple Music, iTunes, and Spotify are just a few digital music platforms that have seen their real-time tallies topped by ‘GOOBA’ – the latest single from Tekashi 6ix9ine.
As we previously reported, the rapper stunned fans with the surprise announcement of the May 8th release of the tune’s music video – an event met with an historic view count for YouTube (click here to read more).
Now, not even a week after the CanonF8-directed clip’s unveiling, YouTube has confirmed 6ix9ine’s entered their history books for yet another achievement thanks to ‘GOOBA.’
“Breaking Eminem’s previous record of 38.1 million views within 24 hours with “Kill Shot,” “GOOBA” accumulated 43.55 million views its first day and instantly became the No. 1 trending video on YouTube.
Distributed by Create Music Group, the two-and-a-half minute vibrant visual, themed around the rainbow aesthetic for which 6ix9ine known, also surpassed Taylor Swift’s equally colorful “ME!” and Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” as the fastest video to reach 100 million views on YouTube by an American artist.”
As it relates to all acts, currently Korean musical superstars BTS holds the record for the fastest climb to 100 million plays on the Google-owned video hosting site after their music video, ‘Boy With Luv,’ surpassed the threshold in under two days.
