There seems to be no stopping Psy as he continues to horse-ride throughout the world and break records.

Psy's "Gangnam Style" music video has broken a Guinness World Record to become the most-"liked" video on YouTube video of all time.

According to Guinness World Records on Sept. 20, the video of the 34-year-old rapper racked up 2,141,758 likes since it was first uploaded on July 15. It added that the video quickly overshadowed the previous records by LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" (1,574,963 likes), Justin's Bieber's "Baby" (1,327,147 likes) and Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" (1,245,641 likes).

Dan Barrett, Guinness World Records Community Manager, commented, "Having been the 'Have you seen this?!' video of the last two months across the web, it's great to be able to award a record for this tremendously popular video. In years past it was unthinkable that something would be viewed a hundred million times, and now 'Gangnam Style' has achieved more than twice this figure in just three months on YouTube".

Psy, whose real name is Park Jae-sang, appeared on the Ellen Degeneres show earlier this month and taught the host along with Britney Spears how to do the invisible horse-riding dance. The artist also topped the iTunes Chart in 30 countries including the United Kingdom, the United States, Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland, Argentina and Brazil.

The song also climbed to 11 on the U.S. Billboard music chart, a first for a Korean song to ever make it that high on the American music chart.
