News : Psy's "Gangnam Style"
Now attention is focusing on Psy's next move, as he has wrapped up promoting the song and its follow-up, "Gentleman." Although the latter, which he performed for the first time at a concert in Seoul in April, climbed to fifth place on the Billboard Hot 100 within just two weeks of its release, it failed to emulate the success of "Gangnam Style." Most industry insiders predict that his new album will determine his future in the global market, as he can still trade on the so-called "halo effect" of his first hit. Psy started working on his new song in the U.S. after performing at a charity football game hosted by former Korea international captain Park Ji-sung in Shanghai last month. "We plan to release a new song this fall, but we haven't decided what genre or format it will be," his agency said.
