‘Gangnam Style’ video breaks Justin Bieber’s YouTube record


Korean singing sensation Psy has unseated pop idol Justin Bieber on the YouTube charts.

“Gangnam Style” officially became the most-viewed video in YouTube history Saturday, beating out previous record-holder, the Biebs’ “Baby.”

Clocking in at 805 million views, the video that spawned invisible horse dancing bests “Baby,” by about 1 million views (the latter currently has close to 804 million).

“Gangnam Style” has experienced a meteoric rise since its July debut, gaining an average of 11 million views per day — the “most viral, fastest-growing video of all time” — according to data aggregator Starcount. The electronic dance hit cracked YouTube’s top 10 list just last month. “Baby,” on the other hand, was released two-and-a-half years ago.

Psy’s quirky video previously set a Guinness World Record for “Most Likes on YouTube,” with 5.3 million — and counting — at the time of writing.

Check out the remaining top 10 videos on YouTube, listed below, as reported by Starcount:

  • 2. Justin Bieber ft. Ludacris, “Baby” with 803 million views
