Psy has begun teasing his follow-up to "Gangnam Style." That is despite the fact that it has only been eight months since the super-hit began taking the world by storm. On Friday, the Korean superstar said the new tune will be coming as soon as April 13.
Psy began by tweeting a teaser, which linked to a video that showed his take on the "Harlem Shake," "Gangnam Shake."
Allright PPL~!!! I'm Uploading the video at my @YouTube acc. It's regarding a #NewSingleInfo and #PSYdoingGangnamSHAKE!!! Plz WAIT!!
In the video Psy told his fans that there will be a live, worldwide "happening" on April 13. The happening will occur as Psy performs a concert dubbed “Happening” -- go figure -- at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. The concert will be streamed live on YouTube.
Psy, whose real name is Park Jae-sang, delivered the news verbally in Korean and English, with subtitles in Chinese, Thai, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Indonesian subtitles. The multiple subtitles show just how popular the song has become, globally.
The YouTube video of "Gangnam Style" has become the most viewed YouTube video, ever. In December of 2012, it became the first YouTube video to surpass one billion views. Since then it has added nearly 400 million more views, as it closes in on 1.4 billion views.
The song has become so popular it has spawned numerous parodies and copies. It also turned Psy, mostly unknown outside Korea prior to the song's release, into a global sensation. Psy even performed at the White House’s Christmas concert and at South Korean President Park Geun-hye’s inauguration ceremony last month.
