Psy’s “Gangnam Style” has made him one of the most famoust people on the planet (for now). The music video has seen nearly 300 million hits on YouTube (at time of writing) and landed at the top of the UK Singles Chart last weekend, outselling its competition by 26,000 copies.
With all of this success, one would think that Psy’s got to be, well, Psyched (forgive the pun) but apparently, that’s not the case.
While speaking to Newsbeat, the singer expressed his concerns about releasing a successing single to “Gangnam Style.” “The second single is going to be in English. And the thing is, it’s too much pressure to overcome “Gangnam Style.” It’s really hard,” Psy lamented.
“The problem is my music video is more popular than I am. That’s a big problem for me right now, so I’ve got to overcome my music video first,” he said. “I’ve got to come to the UK, I’ve got to go everywhere to promote myself, who I am and what I’ve done for 12 years in Korea.”
Do you think Psy will be able to overcome the fame of “Gangnam Style” or do you think he will fade out as quickly as he rose to fame? Let us know in the comments below!
