  • [2013-04-16]
  • International star Psy’s new music video received more than 40 million views in the first two days after its release on YouTube as of April 15. His new single “Gentleman” is rapidly accruing views, and is topping the iTunes chart in over 10 countries.  

     

    The dance video to Gentleman, which was released online at 9 p.m. on April13, racked up 39.45 million views as of in the morning of April 15. The rapid view increase is remarkable with 10 million views in the afternoon on April 14, 20 million views during the night and then 30 million views in the early morning of April 15.

     

    Psy’s Gangnam Style garnered more than 1.5 billion views since it debuted last July, a YouTube record, which pushed him to global stardom last year. Gentleman’s rate of increase is surpassing Gangnam Style and now challenging to set a new record.




    Gentleman made it into the Top 100 for the first time, ranking 61st on the UK single chart counted by English Official Chart Company as of April 15. Gangnam Style first ranked 61st on the same chart last year. 

     

    Gentleman is making a sensation in the world’s iTunes charts. As of in the morning on April 15, it topped the charts in 167 countries including Belgium, Cambodia, Finland, Hong Kong, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. In the U.S., where Gentleman was released more than 10 hours later than in Korea due to time zone difference, it charted in 25th place.

     

    The song was released at midnight on April 12 in 119 countries. With the release of the music video, it is achieving a huge number of views and the rankings in global music source charts is skyrocketing. People are watching with keen interest to see whether Gentleman will replicate the success of Gangnam Style. [Yonhap]
