When Adele dropped the “Hello” and the accompanying video which was her first release in almost three years, we knew it was going to be big.  Since the release, “Hello” has racked up the award for the most views of a music video in 24 hours and now it can lay claim to the fastest video to reach a billion views. The previous record holder was Psy’s “Gangnam Style” which took 158 days compared to Adele’s 87. Adele recently kept her YouTube win streak going when her appearance on James Corden’s popular Late Late Show segment ‘Carpool Karaoke’ amassed 45 million views in a single week.
