Pop star Ariana Grande's sugary new music video for the hit Thank U, Next is now the fastest to rack up 100 million views on YouTube.

After dropping last Friday, the clip needed little more than three days to eclipse South Korea's Psy, whose video for Gentleman took a few hours longer to hit 100 million views in 2013.

Grande, 25, had teased the video -- which recreates scenes from several 2000s-era teen films including Mean Girls and Legally Blonde -- for weeks after releasing the break-up anthem on November 5.

Thank U, Next also broke the record for most views in the 24 hours after its YouTube release with 55.4 million, smashing the previous record of 45.9 million views held by Korean boy band BTS for IDOL.

Celebrity cameos include Dynasty actress Elizabeth Gillies as Cady Heron (the role originally played by Lindsay Lohan) doing a Mean Girls walk down the high school hallway, and Jennifer Coolidge as her Legally Blonde character Paulette, learning to do the famous bend-and-snap move.

Mean Girls cast member Jonathan Bennett is seen playing his original character of Aaron Samuels, while musician Troye Sivan and Kris Jenner also appear.

In the song, Grande reflects on former loves including rappers Big Sean and Mac Miller -- who committed suicide in September -- as well as the comedian and actor Pete Davidson, with whom she had a brief but heavily publicized engagement.

The track earned Grande, who launched her career acting in a series for the youth network Nickelodeon, her first number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100, a music industry standard chart based on sales along with online streaming and radio play.

The pop artist will release an album -- also titled Thank U, Next -- at a yet unannounced date.
