PSY’s “Gangnam Style,” the most-viewed clip of all-time on YouTube, has hit a new milestone, racking more than 2 billion views on the popular video sharing website since it was first posted in early 2012.

"2 billion views ... they are very honorable and very burdensome numbers," PSY said in a statement.

"With appreciation, I will come back soon with more joyful contents!!"

The video became a global sensation in July 2012 and fueled a South Korean trend known as "K-Pop."

The video has Psy breezing through a world of speed boats, yoga classes and exclusive clubs -- all the while performing an eccentric horse-riding dance accompanied by beautiful models.

Justin Bieber's “Baby” is the only other clip on YouTube to enjoy more than 1 billion views.
