Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj’s video for ‘Beauty And A Beat’ has set a YouTube record.
Oddly enough, it may be because of the hoax Bieber put on where he claimed his laptop and camera had been stolen from a concert in Washington.
The video got 10.6 million viewes in it’s first 24 hours on the site, and has already passed the 27 million views mark as of Tuesday.
Last week, Bieber claimed his stuff was stolen at a concert, and then started conversing with a Twitter user who claimed to have the laptop and camera, and leaked a couple videos throughout the week, but promised they were saving the good stuff for Friday.
Friday came, and it was the Bieber and Nicki Minaj video that was actually released.
