Global 'Gangnam Style' Fad Continues

2012/10/03 | 193 views | Permalink | Source

South Korean singer PSY's hit single "Gangnam Style" continues to dominate the charts since its release two months ago.

The song topped the U.S. iTunes Chart and reached second on the U.S. Billboard Singles Chart in just a month.

"Gangnam Style" has attracted more than 300 million hits on YouTube and has become the first South Korean artist ever to rise to the top of the U.K'.s singles chart.

It is an epoch-making feat, since PSY has released no albums in the U.K. and the song is in Korean.

"Gangnam Style" has become a global phenomenon with its electronic sound and easy, infectious tune. And the funny, horse-riding dance has also greatly helped boost the spread of the song on social networking Web sites such as You Tube, Twitter and Facebook.
