PSY continues to set records on YouTube.

The South Korean pop star hit another mark with his new single "Gentleman," earning 38 million views in a single day.

YouTube's trends manager Kevin Allocca says "Gentleman" was viewed 38 million times on April 14, surpassing the single-day record of 30 million set by the "KONY 2012" short film. It also holds the day-of-debut record with 18.5 million views.

And these aren't his only big achievements on the site.

PSY's "Gangnam Style" is YouTube's most-viewed video at 1.5 billion.

"Gentleman" reached 100 million views in four days and had reached over 208 million views by Tuesday morning. It's not clear if those are records, but it took "Gangnam Style" more than 50 days to reach 100 million views.
