Just when we thought Justin Bieber‘s luck was turning around with a reconciliation with Selena Gomez, it seems he’s been thrown another blow. The X Factor guest star’s “Baby” video has sunk to number two on YouTube, falling below Korean popstar Psy’s “Gangnam Style” video. Justin’s “Baby” has been beaten by a horse riding dance video by over 3 million views.
Psy’s “Gangnam Style” video has 825,515,545 views according to YouTube, and Justin Bieber’s “Baby” has 805,262,057 . San Bruno, California based YouTube confirmed the numbers on it’s trend blog just a few days ago. “It’s been a massive hit at a global level unlike anything we’ve ever seen before,” said YouTube. Back in September Psy recieved the Guiness Book Of World Records title for most likes on the popular video site, and currently has 5459382 likes.
The vide, named on the affluent Gangnam District of Seoul, was posted on YouTube July 15th, and went viral shortly after. Fans of the video bring to light the fact that it took only 4 months for Psy’s video to reach such incredible numbers, whereas Justin Bieber’s “Baby” took two years. The catchy song has caught the attention of celebrities nationwide, bringing attention to psy’s K-pop genre. Psy is known for his slick-back hair, crazy dance moves, and one outlandishly colorful music video.
Ellen DeGeneres and Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt, who have both been seen doing the “Gangnam Style” dance. Most recently, Psy teamed up with 1990′s star MC Hammer to do a mash-up of “Too Legit To Quit,” and “Gangnam Style” live on-stage at the American Music Awards.
If you haven’t seen the video, here it is! Gangnam Style!
