World star Psy is about to set another big record. His music video for “Gangnam Style,” released on July 15 last year, will soon have received over 1.2 billion hits on YouTube. Psy started the new year with over 1.1 billion hits and is ready to set another new record.
The music video has had an explosive response since last summer. Psy appeared on several special year-end programs, generating yet more attention for the song and music video. If he receives over 1.2 billion hits by January 16, more than a hundred million people will have watched the music video in only fifteen days.
The video beat out Justin Beiber’s “Baby” and became the most-viewed video on YouTube as of November 24, 2012.
Psy, who is currently promoting the song in the United States, will release a new EP sometime in February or March.
