South Korean pop sensation, PSY, has done something no other artist has ever done before. Yesterday Friday December 21, 2012, PSY’s music video for Gangnam Style exceeded 1 billion views on YouTube, becoming the first video to ever do so in YouTube’s history.
Google reports that Gangnam Style sees about 7 million views a day… no small feat from a man who was a complete unknown Stateside just a few months ago.
“Honestly, 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,” PSY recently told MTV News. “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.”
