SEOUL – Last year the world was rocked by the K-Pop sensation PSY and his ubiquitous Gangnam Style video which spawned a multitude of parodies as well as being a massive success in and of itself.
However, time has not been kind to the rapper and music innovator. He spoke exclusively to Studio Exec.
PSY, when can we expect the next internet sensation and pumping pop anthem?
Well, Studio I’m glad you asked me that. I’ve been writing and writing but nothing seems good enough. The problem I think is I set the bar too high. The expectation in the rest of the world is enormous. In Korea, I do very well, but on the international stage it’s only Gangnam Style and that’s it. And I’m sick of it. I want to show the world that I have a lot of different ideas. Not just Gangnam Style, Gangnam Style.
So what are the ideas?
I’ve been working on a new sexy song called Bangbang Style, which is going to have everyone hot under the collar and then Flimflam Style is probably going to be a B side. I’m also interest in getting into film soundtracks.
Yeah. Ben Affleck called me up and asked if I’d do a new song for his new movie and of course I said yes. It took me a long time and lots of different versions before I finally came up with something that will be worthy of the opportunity.
So what is it?
PSY’s new album ShimSham File will be available from iTunes and all good record stores shortly.
