K-Pop sensation PSY had the entire world galloping around at one point with “Gangnam Style,” the most-watched video of all time (1.5 billion views and counting), but the reality is that the hype surrounding him has died down.
Before PSY broke the unprecedented YouTube record of one billion views on the site with “Gangnam Style,” a legion of dedicated global fans were already supporting him and his K-pop peers. South Korea has 50 million people, but the videos from the country’s shiniest, glossiest pop stars, who sing mostly in Korean, were ranking millions of views past that on YouTube.
From the moment Psy appears in his new video (unexplainably kicking over a traffic cone in the first five seconds), you know “Gentleman,” the follow-up to the juggernaut that was “Gangnam Style,” is going to be every bit as strange as its predecessor.
The wait for PSY’s new single is over. “Gentleman” leaked earlier today, a day before its scheduled release, and it’s not as innocent as some may think.
Back in December Diplo dropped a hint about a genre-shaking mashup that was underway, a song that featured PSY’s “Gangnam Style” and the vocals of ATL club-king 2 Chainz.
