Friday marked 10 years since the release of "Gangnam Style," 

the song that took the world by storm in 2012 and was a must-have at every party. 

South Korean singer, Psy, released the song on July 15, 2012, and it became an instant phenomenon. 

The song was so popular it became the first video posted on YouTube to reach 1 billion views 

and was the sole video to hold that honor for a whole year.

Until Justin Bieber’s music video for "Baby" also hit 1 billion views. 

" Being the first artist to reach 1 billion views on YouTube was an extraordinary feeling 10 years ago, and it still is today,"  

Psy said through a statement released by YouTube.  

"To have played a role in paving the way for music of all kinds to transcend borders is a true honor." 

It took less than six months for the video to reach 1 billion views and 

currently sits at 4.47 billion views and is included in YouTube’s Top 5 most viewed videos list.
