Gangnam Style Hits 1 Billion YouTube Views

It’s Official: Psy’s Gangnam Style just became the first YouTube video to have more than 1,000,000,000 views at roughly 11am ET yesterday!

guiness_logo_300With this hit, South Korean rapper Psy’s song has broken a Guinness world record and is the most liked video in the history of YouTube!

Psy, who is 34, also won the best video award at the MTV Europe Music Awards in November.

And the Rolling Stone magazine put “Gangnam Style” at number 25 on its top 50 list of best songs for 2012 and labeled Psy as “Seoul Brother Number One.”

The song – an ironic comment on the rich socialites living in the Gangnam area in central Seoul, the south Korean capital – also had its title added to the Collins Dictionary as one of the phrases of the year .

For most mortals on video sharing networks, hitting the 1 million views milestone is a feat. For Psy’s dance hymn, which was first uploaded to YouTube on July 15 this year, millions of views are racking up every hour. It took approximately three hours for the video to go from 995 million to a billion. Incredible!

Gangnam-Style-1-BillionProgress was slow until on 28 July, the video was shared on the social site Reddit – and remarked on by Robbie Williams on his personal blog. At that point it took off, and in late November passed Justin Bieber’s Baby as the most-watched video of all time with 6.5 million views a day. Ranked second, Bieber’s clip gets about 300,000 views per day, meaning it won’t reach a billion until late 2014.

More surprising, when Psy first released the song in his native South Korea, he wasn’t even sure his fans would like it.

psy koreanHonestly, when I made this video I didn’t even expect 1 million views, because this is off my sixth album in Korea, so I just hoped it would be huge there,” he said. “I didn’t even think about any other countries; I just did my job and waited and watched. And, you know, today, I’m still wondering and analyzing its success. Because I’ve done this thing many times, this dance, this album, this video … this one just became something else entirely.”
