Psy released his newest single and MV. Did he live up to the hype of Gangnam Style?

You tell me.

Personally the song isn't as strong, but the MV on the other hand. Golden.

Personally, that was way better than Gangnam Style. (Considering I was never a huge fan of Gangnam Style.) Its always fun to see someone be an ass to everyone else.
I love mocking people at my school (that claim to be Psy fans) about the fact tat they don't even know he has a new single.

It's funny that this new dance is basically just the Abracadabra dance and Gain is in this with him. Considering the fact that I am a hopeless Gain fangirl, I approve.

I think both song and video might need to grow on me a bit more, but the song is already stuck in my head. It's funny, too, because if this has been released instead of Gangnam Style I'd be all over it, but now I'm looking for similarities and it's impeding my enjoyment. I'm sure there is no way it will be as successful as Gangnam Style, but he did a good job anyway and I hope it'll be successful in Korea at least.

Edited the capitalisation of PSY's name. It bugged me, sorry.

The video is hilarious in an odd way, but I really enjoyed the song. This man is a beautiful creature.

It's the exact same thing again, just this time there's no catchy tune in it.

Are all the people "famous" ?
I think I've recognized who Plum means, is it the same girl at around 1:45 with the G on her shirt ? She (also) seems familiar.

I think the music video way outshines the song, but the video lacks the energy of Gangnam Style. It was kind of funny just seeing PSY be a dick, but they dropped it. The song is catchy, if a little more generic k-pop to Gangnam Style's generic American-pop sound. I don't know. I'm not blown away, I guess.

The main girl in this video (at the gym, dancing with him, eating with him) is Son Ga-In from Brown Eyed Girls. The dance for this song is basically just a dance Brown Eyed Girls got famous for. She also has a solo career under just the name Gain/Ga-In, and she is magical.

From what I understand some famous people came back and there were also some new ones, so yeah, it's full of celebrity cameos again.

From what I got, he was a dick and then he meets a girl who does the same thing as him, so he falls in love and they run off into the magical rainbow Korean sunset. Or something like that.

As expected, it was way too try-hard.

Gangnam Style was so popular because it felt rather spontaneous. In this one it almost felt like there was someone behind the scenes yelling "THAT'S NOT FUNNY ENOUGH. DO IT AGAIN, GODDAMNIT". Hence a major lack of energy in comparison.

I do like that they're basically trying to bring the Abracadabra dance to the rest of the world, but the little sideways horse-gallop dance hybrid / rehash is, once again, too try-hard.

I want this to do well in Korea, but I really hope it doesn't catch on with the rest of the world the same way Gangnam Style did.

:lol: Rally, I actually disagree. I mean, I think Gangnam Style actually had more elaborately set up gags than this video did. I honestly think if this had been released first we'd all go bonkers over it and if Gangnam Style had come second we'd say THAT video was trying too hard.

Psy has always just been doing his thing, really. If anything I love that he didn't alter it just to suit the world. He kept Korean celebrities, made a very culturally Korean video, and sang in Korean. If he had come back with a Ke$ha collaboration I'd agree, but nah, Psy's just being Psy.

That doesn't necessarily say anything good about either video, though.
Anyway, I think if this came before Gangnam Style, I think the music video would be pretty different.

I'm just saying it's pretty much level with Gangnam Style in every way, and it's mostly getting shit on because it came second. And I don't know if you've seen Psy's other videos, but acting ridiculous in public is kind of a theme for him. I'm pretty sure it would still have been him acting ridiculous in public.

Plus, Gangnam Style was HUGE in Korea, so I'm almost inclined to think he would have put out the same release even without the worldwide success. I feel like he's mostly pandering to Korea, if anything, but the style of this is basically just in line with what he was doing before.

The truth is there is no way to follow up a freak success like Gangnam Style with anything that people won't then compare unfavorably or rag on him for. He could have pandered a hell of a lot more than he did, and I respect that he didn't.

I can totally give you that.

And I'll admit that it's really, really tough to approach this song and video without having to compare to Gangnam Style. I think it's just my inner fear of it going viral and being forced to hear it daily for 6+months.

Haha! I'm happy for him on one hand, but the ignorant crap I've had to listen to people say about him. Good Lord. Another six months of that might make me smack a stranger.

I'd like to mention that the game he was playing on the phone is "Candy Crush Saga" . . . I recognized it because my grandma plays it on Facebook.

I liked it. He's being himself. Ga In is hawwwwt as usual. The song is almost exactly like GS, but it's still fun. Since billboard factors in YouTube I hope he gets another #1 for the luuulz.

Right Now is still my favorite PV.

The only thing that makes me laugh are those calling him one hit wonder like he hasn't had a long and fruitful career in Korea.

This was on the news this morning, so most likely I'm going to be met with screaming idiots at school today. <_<
Seriously, those screaming idiots make me regret calling myself a KPop fan because I don't want to be associated with them. :noway:

I don't know how new it is, but I know that's why Harlem Shake got its number one awhile back.

edit - did a quick search, looks like it's been going on since February. The HOT 100 chart is the only one though, it seems.

Psy is back with a new song featuring Snoop Dogg.

 

Hangover.

 

The song, kinda annoying. But the video is classic Psy and I love it.

Can't decide if I hate this song or what.

 

Talk about an odd couple tho.
