PSY, 2012's biggest breakout star

Advertisements
PSY is, no doubt, the biggest breakout star of 2012.
With his "Gangnam Style" music video now having the most Youtube views (1.05 billion, the first ever to hit the B mark) and even the most likes (6.3 million), Korean pop star PSY is absolutely the world's
biggest discovery and most phenomenal star this year.

His "Gangnam Style" song also went on to achieve extraordinary feats
such as becoming the the first K-pop single to land on top spot of the UK Singles Chart and its music video being named Best Video at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2012.

Thus, it's no longer surprising to see Psy and "Gangnam Style" on various year-end or annual lists, which serve as proofs of how "phenomenal" it was this 2012.
