Psy Knocked Off: Rapper Overtaken by 63-year-old on Korean Charts

Close

It appears that age is no hindrance in the K-pop scene. South Korean rapper Psy was bumped form his leading position in Korean music charts by 63-year-old Cho Yong-pil.

Cho, who first arrived on the pop scene in 1975, took over the top ten spots on the daily charts and bumped the sunglasses-donning rapper to No. 2 in the weekly charts, according to The Guardian.

The blow comes after Cho released his first album in ten years. Titled Hello, the record spawned the No. 1 hit song "Bounce," reports the Examiner.

However, Psy shouldn't lose heart. Last year's hit "Gangnam Style" still tauts a ridiculously impressive 1.5 biliion views on YouTube, making it the most viewed video on the site.

Meanwhile, Psy's follow up hit, "Gentleman," once again paired the rapper's entertaining video style with his flashy fashion sense. The combination rocked the new video to over 100 million views in just four days reports EW.

Released on April 12, the new song alone has seen success on the Billboard Hot 100, moving up this week from twelfth position to the fifth spot.

According to The Guardian, Psy is nothing but gracious to the elder musician.

"I couldn't be happier, although getting on the Billboard chart also makes me really grateful," Psy said.
