Psy's 'Gentleman' jumps to 5th in main billboard chart

South Korean rapper Psy's "Gentleman" galloped to fifth place on the Billboard's main chart this week thanks to increased downloads and sales, its official magazine said Wednesday.

"K-Pop star PSY blasts into the Hot 100's top 10 with 'Gentleman,' which wins top Streaming and Digital Gainer honors following its first full week of availability," it said. "Gentleman" ranked 12th last week.

"Gentleman" bounded into the top 10 "fueled primarily by a 60% gain in streaming, as it tallies a second week at No. 1 on Streaming Songs with 13.9 million U.S. streams," said the online magazine, billboardbiz.com.
