Billboard editor expressed his thoughts about "Gangnam Style" ranking number 2.

Billboard editor Benjamin Ingram stated his opinion on why Psy was still ranked at number 2.

He stated, "Psy's song 'Gangnam Style' song is a song so successful it's shocking. However, if the conditions were different, the results could have been different."

It is because the U.S. music industry is at its most competitive streak right now. If Psy had come out with that song during a different time, he probably would already have been at number 1 for over 15 weeks."

Psy has recently become a global sensation with his song, "Gangnam Style." He has ranked number 1 on iTunes in 30 countries and has ranked number 2 on the U.S. Billboard main single chart HOT 100.

He has also surpassed 480 million views on YouTube with his music video for "Gangnam Style."

He has appeared on many shows such as the "Ellen Show" and "SNL" and featured on news programs such as NBC and CNN.

He has also recently signed a contract with Justin Bieber's agency and plans to release his first U.S. single sometime in November.
