The Korean rapper PSY is sitting on top of the world right now. With the newly re-elected President Obama hinting that he might even be doing the hilariously viral “Gangnam Style” horsey style dance if he won to garnering #1 single status in the United Kingdom and Australia, and becoming a global iconic symbol of what it is all about to be “Gangnam Style,” PSY has truly become an international star. And what helped him become an international star? Maybe it was appearances at NBC’s Today Show, the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Saturday Night Live, and MTV’s VMAs. Or maybe it was press coverage in Rolling Stone, New York Times, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Newsweek and any other outlet that matters.
Well, PSY will now be making a performance on one of the biggest stages you can possibly perform on. On Thanksgiving night, PSY will be bringing his world-renowned “Gangnam Style” to The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. As one of the most watched shows on television, PSY’s “Gangnam Style” will now be penetrating through millions of homes. And unlike his contemporaries in K-pop girl group Girls Generation, PSY has already achieved the type of fame that could keep this “Gangnam Style” madness going. So make sure to catch the horse dancing on November 22, 2012 on NBC.
Lastly, when you’re an international star – you’re an international star for a reason. His single “Gangnam Style” has now hit double platinum. And if you don’t know, that’s 2,000,000 digital purchases which are tracked by the RIAA. The music video itself is also sitting at #2 on YouTube’s most viewed with almost 700,000,000 views. He’s right behind Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” It’s sure to surpass that once he performs it live on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.
So if you’ve been out of the loop for the last few months, here’s PSY’s “Gangnam Style” again:
