Justin Bieber‘s popularity doesn’t seem to be waning anytime soon.

Within just 24 hours of the singer releasing the full video for his single “Boyfriend,” the clip racked up a record-breaking number of views on YouTube.

The video, which quickly went viral after its premiere Thursday night, received more than 8 million views in its first full day of release.

That’s nearly double what previous record-holder Rihanna received for her “Where Have You Been” video, which just dropped last week.

As of Saturday, the number of “Boyfriend” views had increased to more than 9 million.

Of course, Bieber is no stranger to YouTube success.

The video site is how the young singer was discovered and later shot to worldwide fame.
