Psy has gone to where no K-Pop artist has gone before.

A look at America’s iTunes Top 10 chart on September 13 (KST) revealed Psy had moved on up in the ranking with Gangnam Style to crack the top ten at number eight- a first for a K-Pop artist.

YG Entertainment commented on the accomplishment saying, “For a Korean language track to crack the top ten of iTunes, which controls 80 percent of America’s online music market share, is a big feat. Psy’s accomplishment will likely be difficult to break [for a K-Pop artist].”

It’s likely the singer received a bigger boost following his much-publicized recent appearances at the MTV VMA and at NBC’s Ellen Show with Britney Spears.

YG Entertainment revealed Psy would be back once more to the Ellen Show as well saying, “Following Psy’s performance at NBC’s The Today Show on September 14, Psy will be appearing once more on the Ellen Show as a main guest sometime next week. It will be good to anticipate the song’s ranking to go up even higher.”
