SOUTH Korean pop star Psy’s viral smash hit Gangnam Style has become the first video to be viewed over two billion times on YouTube.

The video, uploaded in July 2012 passed the one billion view milestone in December of that year.

The Korean star holds the record for most overall views, as well as the mark for most views in a day after follow-up single Gentleman was viewed 38 million times in 24 hours.

No other video comes close to Gangnam on the streaming service’s list of top videos. Justin Bieber’s Baby is the only other billion-plus video at 1.04 billion views.

Gangnam Style was named one of 2012’s ‘words of the year’ by the Collins Dictionary.
