South Korean pop sensation PSY is officially the king of YouTube. Today his infectious "Gangnam Style" video reached 806 million views, surpassing the teenybopper ode "Baby" by Justin Beiber, which has 803 million views. The video, which was first uploaded to YouTube in July, resulted in numerous online parodies and has become something of media fodder in recent months.
PSY's star, too, has continued to rise, cementing a cover on Billboard magazine and performing on Saturday Night Live and The Today Show. Now with the biggest viral video in the history of the site, it seems PSY is on track to become the first artist ever to reach 1 billion views with a single video on YouTube. To quote the Notorious B.I.G.: "The sky's the limit."
