  • PSY's 'Gentleman' Debuts at #12 on Billboard's Hot 100
  • [2013-04-19]
  • World star PSY's latest single, "Gentleman" entered Billboard's Hot 100 Chart at 12th place.

    According to Billboard Magazine's online business news site Billboard Biz, PSY's new tune recorded 12th place on Billboard's main singles chart "Hot 100". The ranking is far ahead of PSY's previous hit "Gangnam Style" which debuted at #64 on Sept. 13th, 2012 after being released on July 15th the same year. Based on Billboard's system which releases the rankings each week, the song's ranking was based on how it did just for two days after it's release.
     




    The reason why "Gentleman" was able to reach #12 was it's strong performance in the number of views for the music video on YouTube and the number of digital downloads. Since being released on April 13th at 9 p.m., the music video has surpassed 100 million views in just four days (as of 5 p.m. on April 17th).

    According to Billboard, "'Gentleman' has recorded 125 million views on YouTube and 18.9 million views just on the first day". It added that "after the downloads and official sales records start piling up this week, 'Gentleman" may cause a storm within the teop ten on next week's chart".

    Meanwhile, PSY debuted his newest single "Gentleman" to Korean fans during his concert "HAPPENING" on April 13th and will focus more on international promotions.
