Psy Destroys Another Justin Bieber YouTube Record
You might have thought everybody was so sick of ‘Gangnam Style‘ that they never wanted to see or hear Psy again. It seems that is not the case. ‘Gentleman,’ Psy’s first release since ‘Gangnam Style’ took over the world last summer, immediately smashed a record held by Justin Bieber for most video views within 24 hours of its debut. Like, he seriously crushed that record.
The Bieber hit ‘Boyfriend’ previously held the record after it the video got 8 million YouTube views in just one day. Psy’s ‘Gentleman,’ on the other hand,’ was viewed over 22 million times the first day it was online. As of today, three days after it was released, it has almost 99 million views.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Psy has stolen a YouTube record from the Biebs — ‘Gangnam Style’ beat out ‘Baby’ to become the most viewed video in YouTube history. It currently has 1.5 billion YouTube views.
