Gangnam Style becomes biggest Youtube video hit ever
South Korean rapper Psy's contagious hit, Gangnam Style, has become the most watched video on Youtube of all time, overwhelming the more quoted Justin Bieber and his song Baby .
Psy's music video has earned about 803,761,000 views since it was first posted to the site in July while the music video for Baby racked up 803,732,000 since it was released in February 2010, according to Billboard.
Psy’s profile increased considerably over the past few weeks, thanks to his appearance in the MTV Awards, hi s appearance with MC Hammer at the 2012 American Music Awards, as well as performing the dance with Madonna in her New York City concert.
The song topped the UK charts a couple of months ago, and has been a world-wide hit ever since. It also helped to raise South Korea’s profile, not least because it is the first time that a South Korean artiste managed to top the UK charts, and also because it also takes a jibe at the materialist, consumerist lifestyle of this affluent district in South Korea’s capital.
