SAN FRANCISCO: Fresh from conquering YouTube by surpassing two billion views with his mega-hit “Gangnam Style,” handlers for Psy say the release of a follow-up video is just a week away, according to a report Saturday.
The Wall Street Journal said the music star’s next song — a collaboration with rapper Snoop Dogg — will get its worldwide release during a June 8 live broadcast of America’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” late-night talk show.
The new song — “Hangover” — will be “completely different,” displaying Psy’s hip-hop side, his handlers told the newspaper.
The South Korean pop phenomenon galloped into the record books Saturday when his “Gangnam Style” mega hit smashed through the two-billion views mark on YouTube.
It was a first at YouTube, where “Baby” by Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber in February became the only other video in the billion-view club.
“Gangnam Style” turned into a global sensation and fueled a South Korean “K-Pop” trend after it was uploaded to YouTube in July 2012.
