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.
