The first video ever to hit that mark...
PSY's "Gangnam Style" is now the first video in the history of YouTube to garner over one billion views. The video hit the mark around 10:00 AM EST according to Billboaerd and at 10:50 AM had 1,000,382,639 views. The video surpassed Justin Bieber's "Baby" as the most watched YouTube video less than a month ago.
"Gangnam Style" has averaged 6.5 million views per day since it passed Bieber. On its current trend, "Baby" is unlikely to pass one billion views until late 2014 due to a decelerating view count because of its age.
