SEOUL--PSY fans can expect new moves following the comical horse dance with PSY's soon-to-be released bilingual track. In a recent interview with CNN, the “international singer” announced that his next single will be half in Korean and half in English.
There had been a lot of debate about whether or not Psy's next song would in Korean or in English. It was reported that his agency, YG Entertainment, suggested he keep his songs in Korean, but PSY later announced that he was planning to produce a song in English.
PSY cleared it up when he said in his latest interview which aired on Friday, “It's half Korean, half English, so I kind of united them together. And it has another dance move. I cannot predict that it'll be stronger than the horse, but still, I've got a really nice feeling about the choreography.”
He also revealed that he does not anticipate the new single, which is expected to be released before the end of November, to top “Gangnam Style.”
“I am not going to try to beat 'Gangnam Style,'” he said. “I cannot beat 'Gangnam Style,' I don't think so.”
Whether or not PSY's next song will become another international sensation, his horse riding dance move has already landed him the cover of the latest issue of Billboard Magazine which will be published on Nov. 3. The cover story titled, “How the K-Pop breakout star harnessed the power of YouTube, SNL and more to become music's new global brand,” hailed the rapping phenom as a “ready-made star.”
