This is hardly the first time the "Hello" video has broken a Vevo record. Following its release in October, it garnered 100 million plays in only five days. That's, according to a statement from YouTube, "a milestone it takes most major music videos months to achieve."

The song's parent album "25" has also been a massive success, both critically and commercially. It spent seven weeks at No. 1 on Billboard 200, three of which were with more than 1 million copies sold. Recently, it slipped to No. 2 when %cDavid Bowie%'s "Blackstar" debuted atop the chart following his death.
