2012 may well be remembered as the year of Psy, as his YouTube video for “Gangnam Style” has surpassed the one billion views milestone.

The South Korean rapper now holds the esteemed honor of being the first and only artist to achieve such a status, and in six months no less!

“Gangnam Style” has also afforded Psy the opportunity to meet with world political leaders and other massive celebrities in order to teach them his ‘horsey’ dance.

Of the famous moves, he explained, "When you dance you've got to think you're riding an invisible horse in your lower body. This is the point of the Gangnam Style - dress classy and dance cheesy."
