Psy single continues record run

PSY's new video is another YouTube hit

Psy continues to set records on YouTube.

The South Korean pop star hit another mark for viral views with his new single Gentleman, earning 38 million views in a single day as it set a blistering pace to 200 million views.

Kevin Allocca, YouTube's trends manager, says Gentleman was viewed 38 million times on April 14, surpassing the single-day record of 30 million set by the KONY 2012 short film. It also holds the day-of-debut record with 18.5 million views.

Psy's Gangnam Style is YouTube's most-viewed video at 1.5 billion.

Gentleman reached 100 million views in four days and was approaching 204 million views Monday afternoon. It's not clear if those are records, but it took Gangnam Style more than 50 days to reach 100 million views.
