The pop star's revenge-filled hit has broken four records and topped charts since it's release almost a week ago.

The fallout, which saw Kardashian leak a Snapchat recording between Swift and West where Swift appeared to approve the lyric, led to the pop star being accused of being a snake - an icon which makes numerous appearances in the music video, including Swift's ring in the bathtub shot.

The next day, Spotify announced that Swift had broken the record for first day streaming, with almost 8 million plays in its first 24 hours, breaking her buddy Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" first-day record of 7 million streams.

"Look" has quickly smashed a number of records, including the most YouTube global streams in a 24-hour period (43.2 million), the same record on Vevo, its lyric video topped YouTube's first-day streaming record and the single set Spotify's global first 24-hour record.

His confession led the police to launch Kardio- a special forensic investigation to determine the cause of death of the patients. A chief police investigator in the case, Arne Schmidt said that this is the unique death toll in the history of German Republic.


Following the single release, the music video broke it's own records after being released at the 2017 VMAS on Sunday.

The video averaged over 30,000 views per minute in its first 24 hours, according to YouTube, with hourly views pushing up to over 3 million.

Taylor Swift knows the value of someone who can keep a secret. Her previous personal record was 17 million views in the first day for Bad Blood. Taylor is definitely on the right track to beating this record and we admittedly wouldn't be surprised if she does!

"Taylor is very excited about her new album".
