Template:Multiple image Asian music videos always remained a part of popular culture for the music lovers. They are known for their different style, unique clothings, resemblance of their cultures and multilingual lyrics. Although they had a good presence amongst the global listeners supported by the popularity of Bollywood songs and K-pop, the real environment for the Asian music videos to attract global audience was created by South Korean singer Psy with his hit single Gangnam Style. The song smashed many music records and became the first music video to hit 1 billion views on YouTube.[1] It drew the attention of global entertainment firms and convinced them to find a new opportunity in the unique Asian music.

Gangnam Style's popularity was followed by another hit release by Psy called Gentleman; it further boldened the potential of Asian music artists in the pool of western singers.

As of April 2018, there are only two music videos from Asia with more than 1 billion views on YouTube, both by Psy.
