    Psy's "Gangnam Style" ranks 12th on Billboard’s 100 greatest music videos of the 21st century.

    Lady Gaga topped the list, followed by Missy Eliot, D'Angelo, Beyonce, OutKast, Rihanna & Calvin Harris and Britney Spears.

    Psy was the highest-ranked Asian star.

    "It's hard to believe that it's been over half a decade since the satirical dance track 'Gangnam Style' took the world by storm to become the first-ever video to be viewed over 1 billion times," Billboard wrote.

    "Psy's video became a surprise global sensation that turned all eyes to [Korea's] music industry. Though it's no longer the world's most-viewed video, the legacy of 'Gangnam Style' remains."

    In 2012, "Gangnam Style" held second place on the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks, a milestone in the history of K-pop. The video has reached 3.1 billion views.

    Psy is now on a nationwide tour.
