Psy is hoping to go viral again — this time with the help of his “daddy.”
The South Korean singer, who became an international sensation with the 2012 hit “Gangnam Style,” dropped the music video “Daddy” on Monday.
Just like “Gangnam Style,” the video showcases Psy performing some odd but energetic dance moves, but this time just not as himself, but also as a little boy and old man.
“I get it from my daddy,” Psy sings in the single’s chorus, with his various selves occasionally uniting to show off their moves.
“Daddy” is one of the first singles off of Psy’s latest album “Chiljip PSY-Da,” which means “This Is PSY’s Seventh Album” in Korean.
“Chiljip PSY-Da” is his first album since breaking big with “Gangnam Style” three years ago. The video earned over a whopping 2 billion views on YouTube, making it the most viewed YouTube video of all time.
At a press conference in Seoul on Monday, Psy said that the monumental success of “Gangnam Style” affected him when recording the follow-up to 2012’s “PSY 6.”
Psy portrays a little boy and old man in the music video for “Daddy,” his first single from his new album out Tuesday.
“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,’” he said.
“So it took me a very long time to organize all those thoughts into one.”
It remains to be seen if “Daddy” will be Psy’s next “Gangnam Style,” but the video has already racked up over 450,000 views to date.
