Need a “Gangnam Style” pick me up? Though it wasn’t actually supposed to drop until tomorrow, samples of Psy’s new single have already surfaced online.

“Gentleman,” Psy’s follow-up single after “Gangnam Style,” is now available despite promises that the song would be released this Friday. Though it’s not quite the same as the smash viral hit, the song features the Korean rapper’s signature electronic beats and has already made its way to sites like Fuse.

“I’ve been working and reworking on it continuously and I think the latest version will be the final one,” Psy has told a South Korean TV show earlier this month, according to The Independent.

Wasting no time, Psy will also debut the new song live at Seoul’s World Cup stadium on Saturday. Given that this is Psy, there’s even a dash of fun in the event: he’s asked the crowd to wear white, and has even given them clues about the dance routine. (It’ll be broadcast live on YouTube at 6:30pm Seoul time — or 5:30am on the U.S. East Coast.)

Will his signature horse-riding moves make a comeback? The Korean megastar has indicated that filming for the “Gentleman” music video has already wrapped but it’s not known when the video will be released.

Psy’s record-breaking “Gangnam Style” managed to collect over 1.5 billion views on YouTube last year.

Wait - everyone thought it wasn't supposed to drop until tomorrow, but Erica clearly states it "actually" wasn't supposed to drop until tomorrow.  Anybody got a rule book on when to add the useless, unnecessary word "actually"?

Nothing on Gangnam Style. Actually, at least half the ladder down from where he was... Sad story. Gonna stay a one hit wonder.

everyone needs to shut the hell up! I dont know what the hell you people were expecting another gangnam style or what?  Plus crapnam style was not that good of a song either, with a decent video, this will hit!

Well, the song's not very important actually- Gangnam style wasn't that good of a song by itself either, it was mainly the choreography and the video effects that grabbed people's attention. So, it's a bit early to be disappointed I suppose

@cannyyoungbut this video doesn't do anything new and doesn't do any of it better than he did it last time. The song, while similarly mediocre, isn't as catchy and again seems too much like the previous song without being better.
