PSY: 'Gentleman' knocks 'Gangnam Style'
Congratulations, PSY: You can officially consider yourself a two-hit wonder.
It took nearly two months for the South Korean rapper’s breakthrough single, “Gangnam Style,” to garner 100 million views on YouTube. His follow-up, “Gentleman,” achieved the same feat in just four days — and a mere week after its YouTube debut, the second video has risen to the top of the video sharing site’s most-viewed chart. In second place? “Gangnam Style,” naturally.
“Gentleman” debuted on YouTube on April 14. As of this morning, it’s got some 216 million views. If this momentum holds, it could be just four weeks until PSY’s second song becomes the second video in the site’s history to reach 1 billion views. (Tough break, Bieber.)
