Psy’s “Gentleman” gets over 40 million views in less than 2 days

Psy could be on his way to another huge YouTube hit as his latest single “Gentleman” gets over 40 million views in less than two days.

The “Gangnam Style” star Psy’s new music video had been watched more than 10 million times on YouTube less than 24 hours, setting a new record for having the most views in one day after breaking Justin Beiber’s record of 8 million views for “Boyfriend” on the day of its release.

As of this morning that view count has skyrocketed to almost 44 million views.

The video is fairly straightforward, as Psy plays a “gentleman” who constantly acts like a total jerk around ladies. It looks like the song will inevitably succeed after Psy’s previous hit, “Gangnam Style”, which has recorded over 1.5 billion views since its release in July 2012.
