Taylor Swift continues to flex her star power with her musical performances, and we are the willing travelers on her wondrous journey.
Her latest music video "ME!" is demanding we take notice as the official song title is in all caps followed by an exclamation point.
And it's working. The music video is breaking all kinds of records.
YouTube reported that her video among solo artists made history with the most number of plays within the first 24-hours of its upload on the platform:

Not only is "ME!" another catchy earworm, but the song's video is also an epic feast for the eyes with an explosion of bright pastels, each competing with each other to compliment her exuberance as she bops through mystical landscapes populated with bouncy denizens.
The song also features Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie, who is a prominent player in their mini-movie as each promises to the other, "I promise that you'll never find another like me."
Oh, you want to see the video that's shattering records with 65.2 million views on its first full day of release? You got it!
