Gangnam Style Becomes #1 on iTunes Ahead of Official UK Release

Korean pop sensation PSY has ‘galloped’ his way to the top of the iTunes UK chart today with his single Gangnam Style, a month before its 22 October impact date set by record label Island.

The runaway success of the song can be attributed to its music video, viewed over 230 million times at the time of writing. Not only that, it’s also landed PSY, whose real name is Jae-Sang Park, into the record books. The video has been awarded ‘Most Liked Video’ on YouTube with over 2,234,180 likes, as confirmed by Guinness World Records.

On the off chance that you’ve yet to be affected by the viral impact of his video, check it out below and behold the true power of the Gangham Style.

PS: Don’t be a knob-head and be all “but this isn’t Japanese”. Just don’t. Thanks~

About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.

  1. But it isn’t Japa…. No! Stop It!
    Seriously fair play to him. It’s great that Gangnam Style has done so well here. I shall personally be purchasing the song the week that Christmas No. 1 is decided.
