Nicki Minaj's latest bootylicious visual, "Anaconda," has set a new record on the music video platform. Dethroning Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball," Nicki stole the top spot, racking up 19.6 million VEVO views in just one day.

The Sir Mix-A-Lot-samplin cut is the latest single off the femcee's upcoming third studio album, The Pink Print, which is projected for a fall release.

The song also shot to No. 4 on the iTunes singles chart after falling out of the Top 10 a few days after its release. It currently rests right below another of Minaj's current hits, "Bang Bang" with Jessie J and Ariana Grande, who she is set to open this Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards alongside. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
