NEW YORK (CNN) - It is official, the rap star who wowed the world with "Gangnam Style" is now the new King of YouTube!

The South Korean rapper known as Psy has broken the record previously held by teen pop sensation Justin Bieber for the most-watched "YouTube" video ever. It's quite a feat since Bieber was discovered on the site.
