Psy At Least Two-Hit Wonder

Psy‘s new hit song, “Gentleman,” rose to the No. 17 position on Britain’s Official Singles Chart Top 100 on June 16, a leap of 34 places in the course of a single week. The movement is interesting because the single entered the chart in April at No. 61 and descended steadily.

The steep comeback is attributed to the Korean star’s recent promotional tour of the UK, during which he performed as a special guest during the final round of the seventh season of “Britain’s Got Talent” and sang alongside Robbie Williams and Justin Timberlake at the “Summertime Ball 2013” at Wembley Stadium, which was broadcast live over the radio. It pays to show up.

In related news, Psy reportedly has been working on a track with Queen guitarist Brian May. According to British tabloid The Sun, May told reporters at the Relentless Kerrang! Awards that he had met with Psy and found out that the singer was a “massive Queen fan” and is “in the business because of us, which is nice to hear.”
