After Gangnam Style, what next? Psy has finally unveiled his new video for his new single, Gentleman.
The Star reported that..
South Korean pop star Psy unveiled Saturday the hip-swinging dance and music video for his new song, aimed at replicating the global success of "Gangnam Style" and its famed horse-riding dance.
The singer showed off the much-anticipated dance moves - a simple swaying, grinding hip movement - at a promotional concert in Seoul.
The long-awaited video, released a day after the new single "Gentleman" hit online stores worldwide, was posted on YouTube shortly after the concert which was streamed live on the video-sharing site.
"Gentleman" went straight into the top five of the iTunes charts in South Korea and other Asian markets like Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia, but could only manage 90th spot in the crucial US equivalent.
In Britain, it rose quickly to number 25, but elements of the British music press were scathing in their assessment.
"Like a seven-year-old on a Casio," was the judgement of the Times newspaper, while the underwhelmed Guardian critic called it "a fairly standard issue, pop-dance single".
I still prefer Gangnam Style - which, btw, is still the most-watched YouTube video of all time, registering more than 1.5 billion views since it debuted last July. Gangnam Style is a satire on the luxury lifestyle of Seoul's upscale Gangnam district, which incidentally is where Psy and his family live.
Gentleman, the song is not as catchy and the video sillier. Oh well, it's just a video.
Watch the video and tell me what you think.
