The YouTube records keep coming for Psy. After breaking the record for the most-watched YouTube video of all time with "Gangnam Style," the Korean pop star Psy has broken three more YouTube records with his latest song "Gentleman."

Psy's video for "Gentleman" broke the YouTube record for most views on the day-of-debut, hitting 18.5 million viewers on the day it was released last week. After one week, he broke another record on the video channel when "Gentleman" surpassed over 100 million views in less than seven days. It's now been confirmed by YouTube's trends manager Kevin Allocsa that Psy broke the single-day record of views on April 14, when 38 million people jumped on YouTube to check out "Gentleman"

The previous record holder was last year's short film KONY 2012, which racked up 30 million views in just one day.

However, "Gentleman" still has a ways to go before catching up to "Gangnam Style." His previous single has gotten more than 1.5 billion views on the channel.

The Korean pop star admitted in an interview with Ryan Seacrest that he worried that his follow-up to "Gangnam Style" would be a falure, but said he is more than happy with the success of "Gentleman" so far.

"[When] I released 'Gentleman' what I thought [was] if this fails, I'm already happy enough with 'Gangnam' and I experienced enough with 'Gangnam' so if it fails, I still can be happy," said Psy. "When I released the song and uploaded the video, it increased even faster, so what can I say? [I'm] the happiest Korean ever right now."

Psy is expected to arrive in the U.S tomorrow to promote his latest single and make the rounds on various TV shows for a series of interviews.
