Psy's "Gangnam Style" soon to be most-viewed video on YouTube


The music video of "Gangnam Style" by South Korean singer-rapper Psy is soon expected to become the most-viewed video on YouTube, as the number of views topped 800 million as of Saturday.

The music video is already ranked second on YouTube's all-time most-viewed videos, according to the Web site.

"Gangnam Style" is only short of some 3 million views to take the No. 1 position, which is only a matter of time, industry observers said, especially when considering the short period of time it took for the music video to reach 800 million views.

YouTube's current most-viewed video is the music video of "Baby" by U.S. singer Justin Bieber, which made its debut on the Web site nearly three years ago. Psy's "Gangnam Style" hit YouTube's online video streaming service only four months ago on July 15.

Psy also holds the Guinness World Record of "the most liked video" on YouTube with 2,295,231 likes by viewers. "Gangnam Style" had over 5.3 million "likes" on YouTube as of Friday.
