Psy decided switching genres would be his best bet for another hit with his latest single so he teamed with Snoop Dogg on the hip-hop track Hangover.
The Hangover video, which debuted Sunday on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Psy’s YouTube channel, serves as a lesson in Asian hangover remedies.
“This video is not about dance moves, but it’s about like culture exchanging,” Psy said.
The South Korean pop star said Snoop Dogg signed on immediately after only hearing the song’s title.
Psy signed with Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, after Gangnam Style’s initial success. He said he appreciates Scooter Braun’s guidance and impressive drinking abilities.
“He is the most strongest tolerance with alcohol among Americans,” Psy said.
“Asians drink really hard and really mixing everything and really drinking hard every day. So literally I was kind of like unbeatable person with the alcohol before I meet Scooter.”
Psy will return to his EDM roots on a new EP, due later this year. But this time he plans to include more English lyrics.
“People always comparing my new thing with <<Gangnam Style>>, which is unbeatable,” Psy said in a recent interview at YouTube Space LA.
“That means I have a severe, heavy pressure on my shoulder. … In that way I don’t like the song.”
Gangnam Style recently surpassed 2 billion views, a record for YouTube. The South Korean pop star also holds the record for most views in a day with 38 million for his Gangnam Style follow up Gentleman.
