It's 2 billion and counting for Psy and his irrepressible ``Gangnam Style.''

The South Korean pop star's surprise hit has become the first YouTube video to surpass 2 billion views, crossing the mark around shortly before midnight EDT Friday.

The unlikely viral star holds the record for most overall views and most views in a day with 38 million for his ``Gangnam Style'' followup ``Gentleman.''

No other video comes close to ``Gangnam'' on the streaming service's list of top videos. Justin Bieber's ``Baby'' is the only other billion-plus video at 1.04 billion views. Cute kid video ``Charlie bit my finger - again!'' is a distant third with 711 million views.

Psy has three of the top 15 videos on the site. (AP)
