Psy Becomes First Korean Singer to Win Billboard Music Award

Psy is still bearing the fruit of Gangnam Style’s success, most recently picking up an award at the Billboard Music Awards, the first for a Korean singer.
The award show was held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on May 19, where Psy was awarded the Top Streaming Song (Video) award for viral hit Gangnam Style, beating out heavyweights like Carly Rae Jepsen, Taylor Swift, Fun, and Macklemore.

The award is given to the most-viewed music video online via YouTube and other SNS platforms. With Gangnam Stylehaving amassed more than 1.6 billion (and counting) views on YouTube, the award didn’t come as a surprise to anyone.

Psy was nominated in a total of six categories at this year’s ceremony, including Top New Artist, Top Streaming Artist, Top Rap Artist, Top Dance Song and Top Rap Song.
