Psy has now broken a Guinness World Record with his immensely and globally popular music video "Gangnam Style"!

We reported earlier that Psy's music video had become the 'Most Liked Video' in YouTube history, and Guinness World Records has given nods to his achievement with an announcement acknowledging the feat!

The official Guiness World Records site announced, "'GANGNAM STYLE' HOLDS GUINNESS WORLD RECORD FOR MOST 'LIKED' VIDEO IN YOUTUBE HISTORY", with the following message:

Korean Pop Superstar 'PSY' has already achieved quite a lot with his video for 'Gangnam style', and now he can add a Guinness World Record to that list.

'Gangnam Style', which has only been available to view since the 15th of July, has been 'liked' in excess of 2,141,758 times, making it the most liked video in YouTube history.

The closest competitors for most liked video on YouTube include LMFAO's 'Party Rock Anthem' (1,574,963 likes), Justin's Bieber's 'Baby' (1,327,147 likes) and Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep' (1,245,641 likes).

PSY (real name: Park Jae-Sang) is a South Korean singer, songwriter, and rapper. 'Gangnam Style', his most successful single to date, is the most viewed K-Pop video on YouTube.

This also marks the first time a South Korean artist has topped the iTunes charts.

Dan Barrett, Guinness World Records Community Manager, comments, '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 3 months on YouTube.'

Psy's music video currently stands at over 233 million views and over 2.29 million likes!

However, the video has for some reason been removed from YouTube's 'Most Liked Videos of All Time' chart, leaving fans confused. It is not yet clear why the video is not showing up, many believe it to be a glitch in the system.

Congratulations to Psy, once again!
