PSY's international sensation "Gangnam Style" has reached the #2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and is poised to be the first K-pop song to top the chart.
After coming in at #11 last week, the song has seen a large increase in sales and airplay in the United States. It has topped the Digital Songs chart with an increase of 60% in sales, rose from 43 to 9 on the On-Demand Songs chart (up 105% in requests), received 34 million plays on the radio (up 79%) and is the 19th most played song on the radio (up 95% in plays).

The number one song, Maroon 5's "One More Night", spends its 2nd week at #1 this week. Its scores only rose by 12%.
