Beyonce‘s got YouTube crazy in love thanks to her Coachella performance which set a live stream record.

Bey’s Saturday performance drew 458k simultaneous viewers on YouTube … the most ever for a single Coachella performance since they started streaming the festival 8 years ago. That number is also up a whopping 75% over last year, when Lady Gaga stepped in to replace pregnant Bey.

In all, we’re told the opening weekend — which also included The Weeknd, Eminem and Migos, — generated 43.1 million live stream views in 232 countries. That makes it the most-viewed live music festival ever on YouTube.

As Beyonce might put it … you’re welcome, YouTube.
