Psy's 'Gangnam Style' Breaks Huge Record, Hits 2 Billion YouTube Views
It's 2 billion and counting for Psy and his irrepressible "Gangnam Style."
The South Korean pop star's surprise hit has become the first YouTube video to surpass 2 billion views, crossing the mark around shortly before midnight EDT Friday.
The unlikely viral star holds the record for most overall views and most views in a day with 38 million for his "Gangnam Style" follow-up "Gentleman."
No other video comes close to "Gangnam" on the streaming service's list of top videos. Justin Bieber's "Baby" is the only other billion-plus video at 1.04 billion views. Cute kid video "Charlie bit my finger - again!" is a distant third with 711 million views.
Psy has three of the top 15 videos on the site.
