PSY's Gangnam Style music video hits 1billion views on Youtube

South Korean pop sensation, PSY, has done something no other artist has ever done before. Yesterday Friday December 21, 2012,  PSY's music video for Gangnam Style exceeded 1 billion views on YouTube, becoming the first video to ever do so in YouTube's history.

Google reports that Gangnam Style sees about 7 million views a day... no small feat from a man who was a complete unknown Stateside just a few months ago. 
"Honestly, when I made this video I didn't even expect 1 million views, because this is off my sixth album in Korea, so I just hoped it would be huge there," PSY recently told MTV News. "I didn't even think about any other countries; I just did my job and waited and watched. And, you know, today, I'm still wondering and analyzing its success. Because I've done this thing many times, this dance, this album, this video ... this one just became something else entirely."

And funny enough, I don't like the song, and don't like the dance, don't even find psy oppa attractive,
But one thing I knw is, its very catchy and easy to learn.
I'm sure the illuminati r trying hard 2 draw this one in...

Till 2day I can't stl understand d hype over ds song..when I watched it,I wept for d 4mins,25secs of my life I wldnt b getting bak!
Or mayb I watched d wrong version?..wow!d video aint worth watching twice.
Same view I hold on D'banj's 'Top of d world'(I know I'm gonna get lambasted 4 ds buh 2 hell wt pplez thots)..I couldn't get 2 d end of dat song b4 deleting it.let's b honest wt ourselves,if ds was d kinda songs D'banj wz reeling out b4 he scooted 2 Kanye,he wld b a relatively unknown artist tl now..not hating,just stating.
I'm not sayin he shld go bak 2 Don Jazzy,buh d dudez been spewing out crappy songs dz days.
He had beta go bak 2 d drawing board and get his groove back.hav alwez been a D'banj fan or rather had a crush on him,buh wt his song dz days,NO FRIGGING WAY!!

Unexpected things happen sometimes, because there is nothing special about that song or the video. But most of the popularity is due to the fact that most people just wanna see the video that's so popular and not that its too special.

when baba God is ready to bless you, nobody and no principality can stand in ur way.

By every standard psy cannot rap, sing or dance, that dance is a stupid dance. God, the Almighty Father, the beginning and the end, the Alfa and Omega says its time to bless psy.

Chineke God, Oba toto, Oba tototo, Awa maridi, infinitum dont forget me.

You really didn't have to insult him zaynab that was just rude, if the person can't find the vidoe it doesn't mean the person is dumb......don't expect a thank you with such answer.

One billion views means that there are so many requiring psychiatric help. Good taste is lost to silly gyrations.

Anonymous said...

Favour from God or god? Which one? The content of the video in NO way uplifts the life of a person. That CANNOT be from God. Same way I laff when people say it is God Blessing Psquare.... Smh. Their music offers no spiritual food. Tis all chaff.

Anonymous said...

foolish nigerians

so the dance isn't spectacular bcos its not "suo, alanta, azonto etc'...

Japan President danced this same dance with the man in question in the video, he featured in "Ellen Degeneres show, and had an intervie on CNN...

all of u are just stuck in Linda's blog as local champions, u don't know whats happening outside this blog until she feeds u with stale gists....

my white friend in the uk cant do with that dance...

ewus that full Linda's blog, local champions....

i love the dance, its unique....

kudos man, u've broken the record on youtube....

Anonymous said...

see the big heade bonario, local chmapion on Linda's blog....

there's nothing unique about the song to u cos u are far from being unique urself...

Bonario isi ogene... nonsense boy....
