The Terry Richardson-directed clip, which garnered 19 million views in its first day on the site, has so far been watched for more than 371 million times.
The music video for Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" tops the list of Vevo's most-viewed music video of 2013. The Terry Richardson-directed visuals has so far been viewed over 371 million times and is the fastest video to pass 100 million views in the site's history.
Released back in September, the raunchy clip features the former Disney princess going nude while swinging on the top of a wrecking ball. It garnered 19.3 million views during its first day on the site, immediately breaking the previous record set by One Direction's "Best Song Ever".
Cyrus' equally provocative "We Can't Stop" becomes the second most-viewed clip on the site, raking in more than 310 million views. Will.i.am and Britney Spears' "Scream & Shout" surprisingly enters the list at No. 3, earning more views than Rihanna's "Diamonds", Katy Perry's "Roar" and Pink's "Just Give Me a Reason".
Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" makes it to the list as well, thanks to the scantily-clad ladies who dance with the singer and collaborators T.I. and Pharrell Williams. Meanwhile, British/Irish heartthrobs from One Direction are proving that they're attractive enough without having to hire nude girls, as their "Kiss You" is also named one of the most-viewed videos of this year.
