It’s been four years since Korean pop star Psy went viral with his global hit, “Gangnam Style”, but he’s still going strong.
According to Forbes, the hit song continues to receive significant airplay on radio and online. In fact, “Gangnam Style” still gets more than three million views per day.
At press time, the view counter for Psy’s hit reads over 2.6 billion.
During the week of July 8 through 14, “Gangnam Style” was viewed 22.3 million times — more than recent videos from pop stars like Meghan Trainor (“Me Too”), Justin Bieber (“Sorry”), and Fergie’s recent viral sensation “M.I.L.F. $.”
The video was the first in Youtube history to hit two billion views, and although sales of the song have dipped, Psy is still collecting checks.
According to Forbes, someone could earn around $1 million for every one billion views on Youtube, placing the revenues for PSY’s “Gangnam Style” at around $2.5 million at this point… and that’s not calculating any other revenue streams.
It’s safe to say, he’s still getting paid.
