There might be some tension in Scooter Braun’s offices this morning, as PSY’s “Gangnam Style” officially overtook the music video for Justin Bieber’s “Baby” to become the most-viewed YouTube clip of all time.

In the span of only four months, PSY has been able to rack up 805 million views for his candy-colored K-Pop hit, surpassing the 803 million that Bieber’s Ludacris collaboration has garnered since its debut in 2010. (If you were curious, the third-most-viewed video on YouTube is Jennifer Lopez ft. Pitbull’s “On the Floor,” with 624 million views. We challenge anyone to find a reason why.)

Interestingly enough, though both music videos stand far above all others on the YouTube charts, neither song made it to no. 1 on the Hot 100. The Biebs is still looking for his first chart-topper, while “Gangnam Style” was marooned behind “One More Night” for more than two months. Does this make Carly Rae Jepsen the alpha-dog at the Schoolboy reunions?
