PSY news : 'Daddy' YouTube video viewed 31 million times since Nov. 30 upload, reaps positive feedback


South Korean singer PSY seems to be on track for another hit as he dropped his latest single “Daddy” on YouTube.

PSY returns on YouTube with his catchy music along with another crazy set of dance steps similar to his 2012 hit “Gangnam Style” and “Gentleman.” Since its upload on Nov. 30, the video has been viewed over 31 million times by fans who are curious to see what what the artist has to offer.

The song features three generations of PSY. He depicts his father, himself, and his son in the video and shows scenes of the three characters together using CGI. The chorus also prominently features the line “I got it from my daddy” referring to his dancing skills. The video also boasts of an appearance from Korean superstar CL of Korean girl group 2NE1, who sings part of the chorus, as well as cameos from other Kpop idols.

In the Youtube comments section, fans expressed that the song is even better than his original hit “Gangnam Style” and pushed the song to become viral like PSY’s previous music videos. “Gangnam Style” broke YouTube records by hitting 2.5 billion views worldwide, making PSY an international phenomenon.

In an interview, PSY said that there was tremendous pressure to come out with new material following the success of “Gangnam Style.”

“There were many thoughts going around in my head, including thoughts like, ‘If I write like this, it would be not as good as Gangnam Style,’ and ‘If I write like this, the international audience will not understand,’ so it took me a very long time to organize all those thoughts into one,” he said.

The single is part of PSY’s latest album Chiljip PSY-Da.

Meanwhile, it seems like PSY’s music is not for everybody as Canadian crooner Michael Bubl admitted that while his two-year-old son Noah loves PSY’s music, he isn’t much of a fan, the Waltonian reported.

“No. I don’t get it. I’m sorry! Maybe I’m just over-the-hill or something but I don’t get it anymore,” Buble said in a press conference held in Seoul.
