PSY Can’t Beat Maroon 5 in Close Band’s Race For Hot 100’s Top Spot

 

While the Korean rapper has pledged to perform “Gangnam Style” “topless in a place where everyone can watch,” should the song crown the Billboard Hot 100, Maroon 5 prevents the spectacle this week, as “One More Night” spends a third week at No. 1. PSY’s smash, fueled by buzz generated by its video in which he deftly serves up his equine-esque moves, holds at No. 2. The race was extremely close. “Night” bests “Style” by fewer than 500 overall chart points, after “Night” won last week by approximately 3,000 points. (This week’s points difference between Nos. 1 and 2 is the thinnest, in fact, since the Feb. 18 chart.) Both titles gain in overall points this week, but “Style” closes the gap courtesy of an 8% overall points gain, while “Night” increased by less than 1%. http://www.billboard.com/news#/news/psy-can-t-beat-maroon-5-in-close-race-for-1007966592.story
