Gangnam Style tops 200 million You Tube views
South Korean pop sensation Park Jae-Sang posted another landmark, when the video of his global-hit Gangnam Style notched 200 million views on You Tube, days after topping the US iTunes chart.
The video, featuring Park – better known by his stage name Psy – performing his signature horse-riding dance, went viral shortly after being posted on the video-sharing site in mid-July, turning the chubby, 34-year-old singer into an international star.
It is nominated for best video at the MTV Europe Music Awards, which will be held on November 11 in Frankfurt.
Recent appearances at the MTV awards in Los Angeles and on numerous prime-time US talk shows have boosted his profile even higher, pushing Gangnam Style to the top of the US iTunes Chart last Saturday.
Psy has also signed a contract with Justin Bieber’s management agency, although he has some way to go to topple Bieber from the top of You Tube’s all-time, most-viewed chart.
The teenage heart-throb’s Baby video is currently closing in on 800 million views.
