Psy’s ‘Gangnam style’ video to hit one-billion views

Psy’s Gangnam style video is about to hit 1-billion views on Youtube and it may very well happen today.

This would make the dance hit the first video ever to hit a billion views on the popular video-sharing website.

The hit track with the signature horse-gallop dance was first spread from Korea to the rest of the world in early August.

It has since been a massive hit on a global level. Gangnam style is still being watched between 7- to 10-million times daily, overtaking Justin Bieber’s Baby video which is viewed between 300 to 500 thousand times daily.

The view counter attached to Gangnam Style, which was only posted on the video-sharing site in mid-July, currently stands at 998,088,796 views and counting. It has taken Psy only 5 months to reach this milestone.
