Billboard proved it had become a wall higher than last, as Psy′s Gentleman slipped down a staggering number of ranks.

Gentleman stepped down 21 steps to land on no. 26 in this week′s Billboard Hot 100.

Though the song had shot upwards in the previous week to make it up to no. 5, streaming and download data pulled it back this time.

According to Billboard, Gentleman′s streaming dropped 66 percent from the previous week to record 4.7 million, setting it on no. 6. It had ranked no. 1 in the same chart in the previous week. Downloads also shrank about 50 percent.

Billboard now takes into account YouTube views, a fact which heightened expectations toward Gentleman′s ranks, but it wasn′t able to play as big a role this time as only views from North America count.

No. 1 went to P!nk′s Just Give Me a Reason, setting the singer on top for three weeks in a row.

Psy arrived in America on April 25, and on April 30 watched Major Leaguer Ryu Hyun Jin play ball.
