PSY’s “Gentleman” Ties Record for Fastest Video to Hit 100 Million Views
Perhaps the “Gangnam Style” star is more than a one-hit wonder!
Our friends at Visible Measures report that K-pop sensation PSY’s new hit song, “Gentleman,” has tied the record for fastest video to top 100 million views, having reached the milestone in just three days. The only other video to hit 100 million that quickly was a clip of the Russian Meteor from back in February.
As Visible Measures notes, the Russian Meteor footage climbed the charts because it was attached to a viral news story, with major news sources citing such user-uploaded videos, whereas PSY’s views come from a build-up of hype and curiosity after the success of “Gangnam Style,” YouTube’s most-viewed video ever.
And watch out, Lady Gaga! “Gentleman” is now officially the fastest music video to reach the high number, unseating the Mother Monster’s “Bad Romance,” which hit the mark in 18 days.
