This marks Psy's second time entering the main Billboard chart (not the specific one dedicated to K-Pop). The first was with last year's smash international mega-hit, "Gangnam Style."

Psy's breakthrough single debuted on the Hot 100 list at 64th and was never able to make it all the way to the top.

"Gentleman" is already performing better than Psy's first international single, and Billboard analysts anticipate it might have the right stuff to get to that all-important top ranking.

Another Billboard-made list, Streaming Songs, had Psy in the number 1 spot by a long shot. The "Gentleman" video was an instant viral success and broke the record for most YouTube views in the first 24 hours, a title previously held by Canadian singer, Justin Bieber.

According to Billboard, in less than two days "Gentleman" received 8.6 million views in the United States alone, clinching Psy's spot at the top of the list.

There is literally no denying that the charted success of the Korean rapper-singer's newest song, as well its predecessor "Gangnam Style," are a direct result of internet popularity.

Billboard uses CD sales, digital downloads, and radio play when compiling the weekly list. However, due to the internet fame of Psy last year, the have recently added a 'YouTube' score which is based solely on views from the US.
