PSY’s ‘Gangnam Style’ video most-viewed on YouTube
South Korean rapper PSY’s “Gangnam Style” has become YouTube’s most viewed video of all time.
YouTube said in a posting on its Trends blog that “Gangnam Style” had been viewed 805 million times as of Saturday afternoon, surpassing Justin Bieber’s “Baby,” which had 803 million views. By Monday afternoon the gap had widened further, with “Gangnam Style” racking up more than 827 million views, while Mr. Bieber’s video had more than 805 million views.
The blog said the “velocity of popularity for PSY’s outlandish video is unprecedented.”
PSY’s video featuring his horse-riding dance was posted on YouTube in July, while “Baby” was uploaded in February 2010.
PSY’s video has become a global sensation, with many people around the world mimicking his “Gangnam Style” dance. In their October meeting, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, a South Korean, joked that he had to relinquish his title as “the most famous Korean,” and tried a few of PSY’s dance moves.
Before deleting his account, Mr. Brown wrote: “Just ask Rihanna if she mad??????” The on-again-off-again couple have been seen together recently.
A representative for Mr. Brown’s record label didn’t immediately respond Monday to an email seeking comment.
