From the success of his worldwide hit song “Gangnam Style“, Oppa Gangnam Superstar Psy, unleashes his brand spanking new single called “Gentleman“. Another possible big hit from Korea’s most successful male artist of 2012!
The new single “Gentleman” was released April 12, 2013 under Schoolboy Records and Universal Republic Records. Just one day after the release of Psy’s new single, it already entered the iTunes Top 10 Single Chart in Asia, South America and Europe.
The new single is sounds a bit similar to “Gangnam Style” with it’s electronic sound and it’s catchy lyrics including the part where he sings “mother, father, gentleman.” Another similarity to G-Dragon’s new single “Michigo” which was released early this month with the lyrics “mother, father, who are you?“. I also find the song similar to Baauer’s worldwide hit “Harlem Shake” with the tone and the use of synthesizers plus the beats.
Psy is back in saddle with his new song. And with “Gentleman“, he’s trying to make his new single more mainstream than “Gangnam Style” and reach more foreign listeners by including more English and minimizing the Korean language on its lyrics. It’s a good strategy for Psy so everyone would be able to understand what the song is all about.
He just recently performed his new single in Seoul Korea for the “HAPPENING” concert as part of the release of his new single and music video. The concert was streamed LIVE on Youtube and was promoted on Twitter as well. Label mates G-Dragon of BIGBANG, Lee Hi and 2NE1 and other korean acts also performed on the said event.
