Listen to Miley Cyrus on iHeartRadio

Miley Cyrus is smashing records with her "Wrecking Ball." 

The singer's sexually-charged new video has set a new high for most-watched video in a 24-hour time period. 

According Vevo, more than 16 million viewers watched Miley's "Wrecking Ball" clip following its release Monday.  The controversial new video shows the former "Hannah Montana" star swinging on a chain-suspended wrecking ball in the nude, among other suggestive images.  

British boy band One Direction held the previous record holder for the most-watched Vevo video in 24 hours with their "Best Song Ever" video.  That clip racked up almost 11 million views in a day.
