Psy’s Gentleman hits 200 mln YouTube Views
“Gangnam Style” star Psy’s new music video has garnered 200 million views on YouTube in the nine days since its release and smashed the video-sharing site’s record for single-day hits. The video of “Gentleman”, the much-anticipated follow-up to the South Korean singer’s global hit — reached the 200-million milestone after its April 13 debut, YouTube said in a statement.
“From a stats perspective, it’s one of the biggest music video launches the web has ever seen,” the statement said. The video recorded 38.4 million views on April 14, destroying the previous single-day record of 31 million views set by “KONY 2012”, a documentary about a Ugandan warlord made by the charity group Invisible Children.
