PSY’s ‘Gangnam Style’ Reaches 1 Billion Views On YouTube [VIDEO]
You’d think with Justin Bieber‘s teen following he would have the most viewed video on YouTube, well that was true earlier this year until Korean music sensation PSY came along with his hit “Gangnam Style” late this summer. The video for the song set an all time record for YouTube by being the first video to reach 1 billion views, that’s 1,000,000,000!
It crossed the billion mark threshold last Friday and since then it’s been viewed another 382,000 times and when I wrote this it was even more than that!
According to Billboard, the video is viewed around 6.5 million times each day and you can break it down even further by saying the play button on the video is hit every 76.4 seconds!
The closest video to it is Justin Bieber’s “Baby” but Billboard says that video will cross the billion mark sometime in 2014 (if current trends hold up).
In the mean time, go ahead and give PSY a few more views by watching the video to the catchy song below.
