NEW YORK — Vi­ral star PSY has reached a new mile­stone on YouTube.

The South Korean rap­per’s video for “Gang­nam Style” has reached 1 bil­lion views, ac­cord­ing to YouTube’s own counter. It’s the first time any clip has sur­passed that mark on the stream­ing ser­vice owned by Google Inc.

It shows the en­dur­ing pop­u­lar­ity of the self­dep­re­cat­ing video that features Park Jae-sang’s giddy up-style dance moves. The video has been avail­able on YouTube since July 15, av­er­ag­ing more than 200 mil­lion views per month.

Justin Bieber’s video for “Baby” had held the YouTube record at more than 800 mil­lion views.
