Psy's 'Gangnam Style' Reaches Number One on UK Singles Top 100
The South Korean rap star's "Gangnam Style" reached the summit of the British singles chart on Sunday, making him the first-ever musician from his country to accomplish the feat. On Billboard 200, however, he is still camped at the number two spot trailing Maroon 5's "One More Night."
The 34-year-old released the viral hit on July 15 and it debuted at number one position on South Korea's national ranking list known as the Gaon Chart. The song's catchy tune and Psy's unique horse hopping dance moves soon got noticed by the non-Korean world too. The video has now been watched more than 336 million times on YouTube.
"Gangnam Style," which revolves around the pretentious and materialistic style of a posh Seoul neighbourhood named Gangnam, has also been dominating the iTunes Music Video chart for several weeks. Its strong performance on the Apple platform recently elevated it to the top of the U.S. digital songs chart.
Meanwhile, Irish band The Script's song "Hall of Fame," which held the number one spot in last week's UK rankings, has slipped to number two due to Psy's surge. American MC Flo Rida's "I Cry" from his fourth studio album "Wild Ones" rounded up the top three.
