PSY’s video for “Gangnam Style” recently racked up over one billion views, but he’s clearly ready to move on from the horsey dance. The Korean star is set to perform his hit song at “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” but he told MTV it could be the end:
“Being in Times Square on New Year’s Eve is already special — it’s the biggest stage in the universe — plus it’s my birthday, so, with all that, it may be the ending of “Gangnam Style.” I mean, what better way to do it? It’s my biggest and most meaningful birthday.”
While that statement sounds as though PSY will stop performing the song, he clarified his statements.
“I’m really working hard on a new single right now, and I’m not saying [‘Gangnam’] is ending on ‘Dick Clark’ — I still have a lot of invitations to perform it … I’ll be in Paris, and in February I got invited to perform in China, and I’ve still got to do promo. So let me say that in America I need a new single because ‘Gangnam Style’ got too popular, so I’ve got to write a new single.”
So there you have it. PSY is ready to put “Gangnam Style” behind him, but he still has some major obligations to perform it around the world. The bigger question is how will he follow-up the monster hit? Will he be able to create another smash or will he be a one-hit wonder in the U.S.?
