Psy has taken a few months off, but now the Korean pop star is back with a brand new song titled, “Hangover.” The song, which features Snopp Dogg ( nice to see Snopp Lion has been put to rest).
While the song is all sorts of bad, it still doesn’t matter because Psy is kniwn for making these horribly catchy songs that stick to your head like peanut butter on the roof of your mouth.
Check out the new song and video below.
Psy’s newest music video, “Gentleman” has already broken Youtube record by getting 147 million viewers in the short time it has been online, but it looks like the people behind the South Korean state-run network, KBS aren’t one of those millions who liked it. The video has been banned from airing on their network.
Now at this point you’re probably asking yourselves, “why they would ban the video?” Turns out that the part where Psy knocks over a traffic cone is considered “destruction of property” and that violates KBS’ broadcasting standards.
But no matter how ridiculous this guideline sounds, apparently the network takes destruction of property very serious because this isn’t even the first time they have used the same reason to yank a video off of TV; they have done the same thing two times before.
Until then, enjoy Psy destroying some property in the video for “Gentleman.”
Yesterday, Psy released his first new song since “Gangnam Style” in 119 countries. Today the Korean pop star has graced us with the music video for the new tune which he had been working on earlier this week. Since “Gangnam Style” went on to become one of the most watched videos on Youtube, it’s only natural that he would premiere his new video in style, at Seoul’s World Cup Stadium on Saturday where he was performing.
According to Reuters, the stadium was packed with 50,000 in attendance and about 160,000 people watching the live stream. If that isn’t dedication, then I don’t know what is.
Without further ado, here’s “Gentleman”:
While to world will always know Psy as the guy who cursed us with “Gangnam Style,” it doesn’t means that he’s a one trick pony. Yesterday, the Korean pop star’s management agency announced that his new song, “Gentlemen” would be release, simultaneously in 119 countries around the world tomorrow. Due to confusion about the time of release, the official time for its unveiling will be midnight Thursday (GMT) on iTunes and other local music sites.
The Youtube Sensation had been filming the music video for the song earlier this week, wrapping up production on Tuesday. According to insiders, the video had been filmed in several different locations in Seoul, much like how “Gangnam Style” was.
Psy was quoted as saying that the new song will have “a fast, exciting tempo” and be accompanied by a dance that will “be largely in a Korean style.”
But the new song isn’t the only thing that he has planned; Psy will be holding a concert called, “Happening” at a sport’s stadium in Seoul this coming Saturday which will be the launching pad for his international tour to promote the new song.
OPPA ! Gangnam Style!
Oppa Gangnam Style icon?
Apparently the people at Korean cosmetics line, Somang, took the style part of the song to heart because the ring leader behind 2012’s most annoying, but also catchy song has been named the face of one of their lines.
Ever since the rapper started to endorse their men’s lotion line, Energy Factory, the company has said that their sales have gone through the roof. According to Somang, they have moved “more than 200,000” bottle of their lotion just one month after Psy endorsed the product. The company hopes that they will be able to move more than a million by the end of this year.
The company followed it up by saying that the lip balm used in the ad campaigns have not only been popular with their target audience (men in their 20s just in case you were wondering), but also men in their 30s and 40s have been buying the product.
Psy reportedly was in on the making of the product from what ingredients were used for it to the packaging of the products and marketing for the products.
As if that wasn’t enough for the Korean pop star, it looks like he will be the face of several limited edition postage stamps too.
Oppa Gangnam Style, indeed.
