Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ hits 4.5billion views, maintains record for most-watched Korean music video
Psy’s iconic ‘Gangnam Style’ music video has hit 4.5billion views, extending its own record as the most-watched Korean music video to date.On August 4, the music video for Psy’s 2012 breakout hit song ‘Gangnam Style’ had surpassed the 4.5billion mark in views, setting a new record as the most-watched Korean-language music video of all time, according to Soompi.The previous record belonged to the same video, which had also been the first Korean music video to breach the 4billion-mark on YouTube in March. With the new record, ‘Gangnam Style’ still retains its place among the top 10 most-viewed YouTube videos of all time.‘Gangnam Style’ was first released on July 15, 2012, having recently celebrated its 10th anniversary last month. In a tribute to the song, NME’s Rhian Daly wrote that ‘Gangnam Style’ had “served as an introduction to K-pop for many, curious listeners delving deeper into the Korean music scene and finding new artists they enjoyed”, with “online viewership or K-pop artists had doubled in the US since ‘Gangnam Style’ cantered onto the landscape”.Previously, BTS rapper Suga, who also collaborated with Psy on his latest title track ‘That That’, spoke in an interview about how pivotal ‘Gangnam Style’ was in paving the way for K-pop’s success in western arenas. “He was always someone I was grateful for,” Suga said.

Olivia Rodrigo reflects on one year of ‘Sour’: “It’s impossible to sum up how much this album means to me”
Olivia Rodrigo shared a post reflecting on its creation and subsequent success.‘Sour’ was an immediate smash-hit upon its release last May, leading Rodrigo to smash multiple chart records; she gave the US’ Billboard 200 chart the biggest first-week figures it’d seen for 2021, made UK chart history as the first female artist with three of the top five singles in the same week, and became the youngest artist to land a UK Number One on two concurrent charts – a milestone that she hit two weeks in a row.In the months since its release, the album has racked up 15 Platinum certificates across seven countries, including three each in the US, Canada and Norway.Honouring the record’s first birthday, Rodrigo said it was “impossible for [her] to sum up in words how much this album means to [her] and how grateful [she is] to have gotten the privilege to make it and watch it exist in the world”. She also gave a shoutout to producer Dan Nigro, and thanked “everyone who has embraced [her] 17 year old lamentations and forever changed [her] life in the process”.A post shared by Olivia Rodrigo (@oliviarodrigo)‘Sour’ was released on May 21, 2021 via Geffen, flanked her breakout hit ‘Driver’s License’, as well as singles ‘Deja Vu’, ‘Good 4 U’, ‘Brutal’ and ‘Traitor’.
