Psy's "Gangnam Style" is the first song ever to reach the top of a British music chart.

An official chart company which calculates British song sales said that 'Gangnam Style' is #1 for the first week of October.

"Gangnam Style" beat Irish rock band Script's 'Hall of Fame,' which was #1 for three straight weeks and also passed last week's #2, Example's 'Say Nothing.' It's the first Korean record to reach #1 in Britain. This is only after 6 weeks of being on the British charts.

"Gangnam Style" is on the verge of taking #1 in both Britain and in the US at the same time. The song is continuing to experience increased popularity, as it broke the 300 million view mark on YouTube only after 76 days since its release.

Psy's "Gangnam Style" is currently #1 on iTunes chart in 30 different countries.

In an interview with officialchart.com, he thanks the British fans and said he would visit the UK soon.
