While America was still recovering from a massive post-Thanksgiving food coma, Psy, a South Korean rapper, was celebrating a new title over the weekend.
“#GangnamStyle just became the most watched video @Youtube!! #History,” he tweeted on Saturday to announce the news.
He took over the number one spot from his label mate (as of September), Justin Bieber, who previously held the title for his music video for “Baby.” “Gangnam Style” surpassed the 803,732,000 views on “Baby” with around 803,761,000 views.
Ready to be even more impressed? Billboard said it took “Baby” over two years after a February 2010 release to reach that number. The catchy “Gangnam Style” was only posted in July 2012.
This isn’t the first YouTube record Psy has set. “Gangnam Style” is also the most liked video on YouTube, according to Billboard, with 5.3 million likes.
With newfound international stardom, Psy has recently performed alongside Madonna and MC Hammer. This rapper definitely has a lot to celebrate!
