The 'Gangnam Style' singer claims a new milestone on the file sharing site.

PSY's YouTube channel has reached a new milestone after racking up three billion views.

The South Korean's channel is now just the fifth ever to cross the threshold of three billion views.

These new figures now place PSY alongside the likes of Rihanna and Justin Bieber, the only other artists whose YouTube channels have received as many views.

The 'Gentleman' singer first appeared on the international music scene, despite a previous six albums, back in 2012 when his single 'Gangnam Style' went viral.

The single's music video also became the first, and only, to exceed one billion views on YouTube.

The K-Pop man recently posted his excitement on Twitter at the success of 'Gangnam Style', simply stating: "My GOD!!! 1.7Billion Views!!!"

The huge rise in viewing figures comes alongside a surge in overall weekly streams, as PSY has claimed 69 million more plays, inspiring the media to label the star as "The King of YouTube".

As well as celebrating his international fame, PSY had been busy performing all over the world, recently appearing at Capital FM's Summertime Ball 2013.
