Psy Teams Up With Snoop Dogg For New Track
Singer Psy has said he is going off his record-breaking song Gangnam Style because it has made making new music so challenging.
The bizarre, colourful video featuring the now-iconic horse gallop dance recently surpassed two billion YouTube views.
The South Korean pop star also holds the record for most overall views, and most views in a day with 38 million for his Gangnam Style follow up Gentleman.
"That means I have a severe, heavy pressure on my shoulder and you know as many as it grows you know I'm really painful you know. When I'm releasing a next song or next step or whatever, people always comparing my new thing with Gangnam Style, which is unbeatable.
"So I got to say I cannot beat the song forever and I'm not going to beat the song forever and I'm not going to try to beat the song forever. In that way I don't like the song," said Psy.
The 36-year-old has teamed up with Snoop Dogg for his new hip-hop single Hangover.
He said the American rapper signed on to the project immediately after only hearing the song's title.
"And as soon as I got that hook I thought about you know I can't thought about only one person who is Snoop Dogg. We all know he is hanging over every day. So you know I called him right away and I said 'can you feature on my song? It's going to be really honoured'.
"And he asked me 'what is the title of the song?' And I said 'it's Hangover and he said 'I'm doing it.' So he really like the title of the song. So that's how we met."
The Hangover video teaches audiences about Asian hangover remedies.
"It's about like culture exchanging," said Psy.
"In Korea, or literally in Asia, we have our specific way of getting avoid from hangover. We have a lot of like really specified ways of getting avoid from it. So I told Snoop like 'we had this, this and this. And in video I want to teach you how to do it'.
"And he was like really interested in it and super excited about it. That's why he flew all the way to Korea and we did all that thing in Korea. So in video literally I'm teaching and he's learning."
