Following this pattern, it's clear that the views are increasing exponentially as he begins to be more exposed to media around the world and especially in the US. It's possible that he would reach this 200 million mark in few days. This is the highest record for a Korean artist.

"Gangnam Style" recently took #64 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, surpassing the Wonder Girls' record for "Nobody," in 2009. Psy is the second artist to enter the Hot 100.

Psy reached #1 on the iTunes singles chart on September 15, which is the first ever for a Korean song and Korean artist. He was also #1 on charts for Canada, Argentina, Netherlands, New Zealand, Lithuania, Paraguay, Peru, Slovakia and Hong Kong.
