Close

Move over Justin Bieber, because Youtube belongs to PSY.

The hit music video "Gangnam Style" by South Korean rapper PSY surpassed Justin Bieber's "Baby" on Youtube this weekend. This makes PSYs video the most-watched clip in the history of the social media site, according to Us Magazine.

Canadian pop sensation Bieber had the top spot on Youtube since July 2010, getting more than 803 million views.

Since being posted in July, the viral song-and-dance of "Gangnam Style" has earned more than 803,761,000 views and counting. PSY tweeted on Saturday, along with the hashtag "#History" and a link to the now-famous clip: "#GangnamStyle just became the most watched video on YouTube!!"

The ubiquitous video, which pokes fun at a rich neighborhood in Seoul, has inspired plenty of copies, mash-ups and parodies by people around the world. 

PSY's song previously set YouTube's record for the most "liked" video ever posted to the site, with more than 5.3 million "Likes" and just 323,000 "Dislikes."

Meanwhile, Bieber received 1.4 million "Likes" and 3.1 million "Dislikes" for "Baby." On the music charts, it peaked at No. 2, where it remained for seven weeks behind Maroon 5's "One More Night."

Bieber can't complain though because he still has a VEVO channel with over 3 billion hits to date.

Being a Youtube sensation is only a part of PSY's character that has transferred around the world, leading to K Pop dances from Britney Spears, Madonna, the cast of the Jersey Shore and even U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

PSY also made headlines performing with legendary rapper and dancer MC Hammer at the 2012 American Music Awards earlier this month.The South Korean rapper joined Hammer to do a remix of Hammer's 1990s hit "Too Legit to Quit" and PSY's "Gangnam Style."
