Gangnam Style hits 1bn YouTube views

Gangnam Style

PSY’s Gangnam Style has hit one billion YouTube views, in a record only achieved previously by the Black Eyed Peas, Linkin Park and Bruno Mars.

Since releasing Gangnam Style this summer, the Korean artist has broken the record for Most Liked Video on YouTube and, over the past week, saw close to 80 million YouTube views on his official channel.

Bruno Mars, who currently ranks second for that particular metric, saw around 10 million views.

Psy has also reached more than three million page likes on Facebook, and one million fans on Twitter.

Having signed with Scooter Braun and Schoolboy Records, he landed the cover of Billboard Magazine Maximum Exposure issue in October.
