‘Gangnam’ dethrones Bieber on YouTube

– South Korean rapper Psy’s “Gangnam Style” has become the most-viewed video on Google’s YouTube website, surpassing Justin Bieber’s “Baby.”

The video, which contains satirical lyrics about the habits of wealthy South Koreans and features choreography mimicking horse riding, reached 805 million views on Saturday, while “Baby” had 803 million views, YouTube said in a posting on its Trends blog. The video is watched between 7 and 10 million times a day, the blog said. The hits have now increased to more than 827 million.

The popularity of the video has vaulted 34-year-old musician Park Jae Sang into fame under the pseudonym Psy, earning the rapper appearances on U.S. TV programs.

The West China Metropolis Daily newspaper reported last week that Psy was in talks to appear on state-broadcaster China Central Television’s Spring Festival gala, a variety show broadcast annually on Chinese Lunar New Year Eve that is the nation’s most-watched program.
