The "Wrecking Ball" video by Miley Cyrus has reached 50 million views in just over two days.  It had broken the record of most watched video in 24 hours -- previously held by One Direction's "Best Song Ever" -- with lots of time to spare.

True to her word, Cyrus revealed the track list of her upcoming Bangerz album the moment the record was broken.  And now, the 20-year old singer has made another promise to her fans and followers.   

In her Twitter account, she said, "ok so were already to 40 million so quick... how about directors cut once smilers get it to 150 million???? =] i know yall love a challenge."

 

 

The "Wrecking Ball" video had made (and is making) waves and, just like her (in)famous performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, the video has become a target of outrage and controversy.  Singing (in some portions) in nothing more than her birthday suit and a pair of Dr. Martens while riding a swinging wrecking ball, as well as licking a sledgehammer in other portions, it has been called pornographic by some.  But the hits just keep coming. 

She later tweeted, "We've hit 50 mil #wreckingballvideo ❤ get it to 150 and ill release directors cut :)" 

 

 


The Bangerz album has 13 tracks, namely: Adore You; We Can't Stop; SMS (Bangerz) feat. Britney Spears; 4×4 feat. Nelly; My Darlin' feat. Future; Wrecking Ball; Love, Money, Party feat. Big Sean; Get it Right; Drive; FU feat. French Montana; Do My Thang; Maybe You're Right; and Someone Else.   

The deluxe edition of the album includes three bonus tracks, namely: Rooting For My Baby; On My Own; and Hands in the Air feat. Ludacris.  The first two is by Pharrell. 

The performer later said, "Laying in bed thinking about how much I love my Smilerz ❤ thank you for my life."
