Psy hailed his ascent to "Billion Style" Saturday, after the South Korean rapper's viral hit became the first video to break a billion views on YouTube, marking a historic milestone on the Internet. 

South Korean pop sensation Psy, whose real name is Park Jae-Sang, performs for fans at a promotion by the Sunrise breakfast television show in Sydney, on October 17, 2012. Psy's "Gangnam Style" became the first video to hit a billion views on YouTube on Friday, marking a fresh milestone in the global craze for the South Korean rapper and his horse-riding dance.

The view counter for "Gangnam Style", which was only posted on the video-sharing site July 15, clicked over into 10 figures at around 1550 GMT Friday, as the global craze for the singer and his horse-riding dance refuses to die down.
