Psy Leaps to 11th on Billboard’s Hot 100 – Highest Showing for a Korean Artist Ever
Psy has topped his own record for the highest showing by a Korean artist on the Billboard Hot 100.
After first making history last week with a 64th place debut in the Billboard Hot 100, the September 19 (local time) updated chart figures shows Psy making a giant leap to 11th in this week’s ranking.
Though falling just short of entering the chart’s top ten, the rocketing in ranking tops his own record for the highest showing on the Billboard Hot 100 by a Korean artist.
Gangnam Style’s success was also mirrored in other Billboard charts making another vault to 4th on the Hot Digital Songs (which soared 210 percent), 43rd on the On-Demand Songs (300,000) and Hot 100 Airplay (19 million and up 131 percent).
