Guinness World Record

Korean pop sensation PSY has broken the record for Most Liked Video on YouTube with over 2,234,180 likes, as confirmed by Guinness World Records.

The latest stats on the video, that has been available to view since July 15, puts its competitors in the shade; LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem has accumulated 1,574,963 likes, Justin’s Bieber’s Baby 1,327,147 likes, and Adele’s Rolling in the Deep 1,245,641 likes.

PSY, real name, Park Jae-Sang, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, and rapper. Gangnam Style, his most successful single to date, is the most viewed K-Pop video on YouTube, and marks the first time a South Korean artist has topped the iTunes charts. The video can be viewed on his official YouTube Channel.

The video has in excess of 222 million views and the track has gone to No.1 in countries across the globe. It hit the top spot of the UK iTunes chart today (September 21), a month ahead of its October 22 impact date planned by record label Island.

Guinness World Records community manager, Dan Barrett, said: “Having been the “have you seen this?!” video of the last two months across the web, it’s great to be able to award a record for this tremendously popular video.

“In years past it was unthinkable that something  would be viewed a hundred million times, and now Gangnam Style has achieved more than twice this figure in just three months on YouTube. Psy – your certificate is waiting here at our office, come pick it up any time!”
