"Gangnam Style" is a song made by the K-pop singer PSY.
On July 12, 2012, Korean pop artist PSY released "Gangnam Style" on his album PSY 6 (Six Rules), Part 1. The music video for the song was uploaded onto YouTube the same day. The song became the most viewed video on YouTube in August 2012 (which caused emergency maintenance of the website following its foray into 1 billion views), having currently over 2.7 billion views and 12 million likes. "Gangnam Style" was the most viewed video on YouTube up until mid-2017.
After the music video for "Gangnam Style" was released it became a massive viral hit, with the song, dances, and PSY himself becoming pop culture icons. The song and dance would be referenced in various commercials, tv shows and films. "Gangnam Style" would appear in in video games such as Just Dance 4. "Gangnam Style" would also inspire multiple parodies to be made of it. PSY has also made numerous appearances at major events and in other media after the song's success.
As of June 2020, it is currently the 7th most viewed on YouTube.
The song would also become a meme and be the source of mashups on Triple-Q's channel. He would release collaborative albums on his Bandcamp page based around "Gangnam Style" and other songs by PSY called GANGNAMCORE.

Charlie Puth", which was closely trailed by "Despacito' by Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee. The following day, Triple-Q announced he was taking submissions for his latest album GANGNAMCORE 3 & Knuckles: The Weight Oppa World. On July 15th 2017, the SiIvaGunner channel began another "Gangnam Style" event starting with "The Sun Rises - Ōkami". President Haltmann would later Tweet about Triple-Q's album, which was released an hour before the rip "The Weight of the World - NieR: Automata" was uploaded.
