Rapperul coreean Psy a facut senzatie cu single-ul Gangman Style.
Psy - Gangnam Style, record 100 milioane de vizualizari pe YouTube.
The free online music video of "Gangnam Style," a new hit single by Korean rapper-singer Psy, broke the 100 million mark in YouTube views.
The video had attracted 100 million views on 04. September, only 52 days after it was put on the free video-sharing service.
Psy, whose real Korean name is Park Jae-sang, was not previously well known outside his country but rose to stardom on YouTube for his "Gangnam Style" music video in which he performs a comical horse-riding dance.
Interest in the singer has doubled since the video was covered by major foreign news media outlets, including CNN, the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal and the weekly news magazine Time last month. The song and dance have since gone viral and become an Internet meme, with Nelly Furtado dancing "Gangnam Style" in a concert and Jay Leno showing a parody of Mitt Romney arriving at the GOP convention performing the dance.
Psy said he was bemused at such an explosive response.
"I experience all these for the first time. I feel like reaching my peak for the first time in 11 years after debuting. I now have a mixed feeling that I want to use this chance to enhance the prestige of South Korea and that I should not attempt too much," Psy said through his entertainment agency, YG Entertainment.
Psy is scheduled to leave again for the United States on Wednesday where he will promote the new song in collaboration with Justin Bieber's management agency.
During his previous visit late last month, Psy met with Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, and was reportedly offered a chance to release his hit single "Gangnam Style" in the U.S.
