PSY dropped a huge gift on his fans today.
The South Korean rapper, best known for the giant international hit “Gangnam Style” in 2012 (2.46 billion views and counting on YouTube), announced that on Tuesday he’ll be releasing his followup album, “Chiljip PSY-Da” (which means, simply, “This Is PSY’s Seventh Album” in Korean).
But he also released two songs with music videos on YouTube, and one looks like it might reach “Gangnam Style”-levels of ridiculousness.
“Daddy” features an EDM beat reminiscent of PSY’s earlier hit, plus plenty of meme-able dance moves and oddities, like PSY’s face superimposed onto children and in old-man makeup. The chorus goes: “Hey where’d you get that body from? I got it from my daddy.” (CL of the South Korean group 2NE1 is also featured on the song.)
The music video for the funky “Napal Baji” has PSY as a South Korean movie star with some Elvis-inspired duds.
PSY also teased a song with will.i.am on the live broadcasting app V.
The rapper says he felt pressure to live up to the expectations of “Gangnam Style” with his latest release. “There were many thoughts going around in my head, including thoughts like, ‘If I write like this, it would be not as good as Gangnam Style,’ and ‘If I write like this, the international audience will not understand,’ so it took me a very long time to organise all those thoughts into one,” he said at his announcement.
In any case, he seems to be having as much fun as ever in his videos.
