It’s official: Everyone loved Adele rapping along to Nicki Minaj’s “Monster.”

The 25 singer”s “Carpool Karaoke” segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden has set a new YouTube record for the most-watched late-night clip ever, CBS announced Wednesday. As of this posting, the viral clip has racked up over 67.5 million views since it was released on Jan. 13; within its first five days, the mini road trip pulled 42 million views.

Corden told EW that part of the segment’s success is owed to making the stars feel comfortable. “There’s an ease and an intimacy to it where you’d never ever see stars quite so unguarded,” Corden said. “l’m different from when I’m doing the show when there’s an audience of 200. Seeing a huge megastar sing their hits in the same environment that you and I sing on our way to work — it’s humanizing.”
