It hasn't even been a full day since the release of Ariana Grande's "Thank u, next" video and it's already broken multiple records. The video, which finds the pop princess recreating the best of early 2000s teen films, has already racked up 52 million views, breaking the record for most views in a 24-hour period. The video is so popular in fact, that the commenting function was temporarily delayed due to the traffic, according to a tweet from Team Youtube.
