PSY Reveals He Was Nervous ‘Gentleman’ Would Fail
PSY was worried he’d become a one-hit wonder after the international success of “Gangnam Style.”
But with “Gentleman, the South Korean pop star has done it again.
The sensational singer revealed to On Air with Ryan Seacrest: “[When] I released ‘Gentleman’ what I thought [was] if this fails, I’m already happy enough with ‘Gangnam’ and I experienced enough with ‘Gangnam’ so if it fails, I still can be happy.”
However, failing wasn’t the case for PSY, with “Gentleman” having over 200 million views to date.
“When I released the song and uploaded the video, it increased even faster, so what can I say? [I'm] the happiest Korean ever right now,” he joked.
Another performance of PSY’s getting a lot of views was his take on Beyoncé‘s “Single Ladies.” The singer laughed off his look, saying “Oh, man. It’s nasty.”
So why did he don a red bodysuit and shake it like Queen Bey?
“I used to do that kind of lady singer parody for more than a decade when I’m doing a concert for fun and…I literally tried Beyoncé ‘Single Ladies’ a couple years ago before ‘Gangnam’ came out…and what I thought was maybe I can do it one more time so meanwhile Beyoncé can figure out what I’m doing.”
