Psy, the South Korean rapper who sang Gangnam Style has just broken a Guinness World Record for the “Most Likes on YouTube” with 2,141,758. That breaks the previous record set by LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem (1,574,963), Justin’s Bieber’s Baby (1,327,147) and Adele’s Rolling in the deep (1,245,641).

Gangnam also has racked up 227 million views, which puts it just outside of YouTube’s list of the 30 most-viewed videos ever.

Guinness World Records Community Manager, Dan Barrett, said: “Having been the ‘Have you seen this?!’ video of the last two months across the web, it’s great to be able to award a record for this tremendously popular video. In years past it was unthinkable that something would be viewed a hundred million times, and now “Gangnam Style” has achieved more than twice this figure in just three months on YouTube. PSY – your certificate is waiting here at our office, come pick it up any time!”
