Psy’s ‘Gentleman’ video smashes YouTube records
 
 
 

SEOUL  - “Gangnam Style” star Psy’s new music video had received more than 50 million views on YouTube by Monday, re-writing the video-sharing site’s records for single-day hits.
The dance video to “Gentleman”, the South Korean singer’s long-awaited follow up to “Gangnam Style, was only posted on YouTube at 9:00 pm (1200 GMT) on Saturday.
In the first 24 hours, it racked up around 20 million hits, destroying the previous record for single-day views of 8.0 million, set by Canadian heartthrob Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” video in May 2012. Now that record looks set to be stretched again, with the view count about 40 hours after release standing at 51 million.
 “51million views in 40hours!! My God~!!!” the 35-year-old star exclaimed on his Twitter account. The video shows Psy, wearing his signature sunglasses, dancing at various locations in and around Seoul including a high-end clothing store, restaurant, swimming pool and a library.
