Psy Gangnam Style hits 1 billion views

On the day Mayans predicted the world to end (21 December 2012), Psy’s Korean dance hit “Gangnam Style” surpassed 1 billion YouTube views, winning over Justin Bieber and everyone else to the milestone.

While Justin Bieber has long been announced the King of YouTube, this created a different story.

Psy’s “Gangnam Style” hit against Justin Bieber’s “Baby” which came out in early 2010 and is YouTube’s second most-viewed video.
