What has your ass done today? 'Cuz it's only just 11 a.m. EST, and Nicki Minaj's ass has already broken a record.

Video hosting service Vevo reports that Minaj's controversial "Anaconda" video has officially broken the record for most views in 24 hours, a record previously held by Miley Cyrus' controversial "Wrecking Ball" video. (Controversy: it works!)

Vevo sent out a tweet earlier this morning stating that "Anaconda" was watched 19.6 million times in its first 24 hours:

Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball," which had held the record since its release in September of last year, was viewed 19.3 million times its first day of release. A narrow victory for Minaj, but a victory nonetheless. Our thoughts are with dear Cyrus at this trying time.

This is not the first time Minaj has shattered this particular record: in January 2012, Minaj's "Stupid Hoe" video was watched 4.9 million times in its first 24 hours, and at the time, that was enough to secure her the number one slot. She also featured on Justin Bieber's "Beauty and the Beat," which held the record for a time in 2012.

Of Minaj's 19.6 million views, at least 37 of those belong to Sir Mix-A-Lot, so be sure and send him a thank you note (and, perhaps, a royalties check), Ms. Minaj.

Expect to see "Anaconda" slither up the charts next week thanks to streaming points. The age we live in...
