Psy snags #2 spot on ‘Billboard’s top 20 music moments of 2012’
The pop music world was loaded with major milestones in 2012, but hellokpop thinks that one of the best was PSY‘s Gangnam Style. Apparently, so does Billboard.com, which has placed Psy and his Gangnam Style at #2 on their Top 20 Music Moments of 2012 list.
Gangnam Style, the lead single from Psy’s 6th studio album, PSY 6 (Six Rules), Part 1, was released in July 2012. The song debuted at #1 on South Korea’s Gaon Chart. On December 21, 2012, Gangnam Style became the first video in YouTube‘s history to be viewed more than a billion times, surpassing Justin Bieber‘s ever-popular Baby. To date (as of the writing of this article), Gangnam Style ‘s view count was 1,083,808,130-and still climbing.
Topping Billboard’s Top 20 List, at #1, is Whitney Houston‘s tragic death last Feb. 11, at Los Angeles’ Beverly Hilton Hotel. You can find Billboard.com’s full Top 20 List HERE.
