South Korean rapper, and internet sensation, Park Jae-sang (better known as Psy), has just broken the record for most watched YouTube video yet again, hitting the two-billion mark for his music video "Gangnam Style".
South Korean rapper, Psy's song "Gangnam Style" has received over two-billion views on YouTube.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The video from July 15, 2012 achieved international fame after it went viral almost immediately after its posting, sparking a dance craze to emulate Psy's horse like dance.
"Gangnam Style" has twice as many views as YouTube's second most watched video, Justin Bieber's video for the song "Baby", which has one billion views.
The music video, and the signature dance, sparked a slew of imitators, tributes, and parodies that flooded YouTube; including those making fun of politicians like President Barack Obama, his 2012 opponent Mitt Romney, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, and even fictional characters like Gandalf and Lo Pan.
Psy's follow up song, "Gentleman", has also thrived in the online world. On YouTube the video has over 700-million views since its' April 13, 2013 debut, and sits at the number seventh most viewed YouTube video. "Gentleman" also holds the distinction as most viewed video in a day, with 38-million views.
The Korean singer spent most of 2013 on a world tour, starting with the United States and Europe, and ending with a tour of Asia.
One of Psy's biggest struggles currently has been overcoming the success of "Gangnam Style". The 36-year-old singer said, "The Problem is my music video is more popular than I am. So I've got to overcome my music video first."
Psy was presented one of South Korea's highest cultural honors, the Okgwan Order of Cultural Merit in 2012, and performed for the new president of South Korea, Park Geun-Hye, at her inauguration ceremony.
Psy has been collaborating with American rapper, Snoop Dogg, on a single called "Hangover" which will premier on June 8, at a live airing of Jimmy Kimmel's television show.
