Justin Bieber reclaims VEVO record from One Direction

Canadian superstar Justin Bieber has taken back his VEVO record from UK boyband One Direction, just a couple of weeks after they claimed it as their own.

At the end of September, the 'What Makes You Beautiful' heartthrobs released their new music video for 'Live While We're Young' and it had a phenomenal 8.24 million views in the first 24 hours of being made public. This impressive figure saw them steal the record from Bieber, who previously held it with his visual offering for 'Boyfriend'.

Last week, after an elaborate PR stunt involving a supposedly stolen laptop and leaked footage, Bieber unveiled the video for his collaboration with Nicki Minaj on 'Beauty and the Beat' and it racked up an even higher number of hits.

'Beauty and the Beat' received 10.6 million views in the same time period and has now earned the teen sensation his title back. Writing on his official Twitter page this afternoon (October 16) Bieber thanked his fans for supporting the song:
