Twenty years after Psy delivered his global hit song Gangnam Style, the K-pop star is back to take the world by storm with That That, a new song from his latest album. And he comes armed with a member of BTS, no less. Psy (real name Park Jae-sang) is known for his energetic dance moves – Gangnam Style’s hook step is etched in our minds forever. He brings the same energy to the new song, but what was quite unexpected was that BTS member Suga (Min Yoongi) went against Psy in the music video.
The 29-year-old rapper literally jumps into frame mid-song and launches a rap battle with Psy, before matching steps with him. The clip, which was released today, has a Wild West setting with the two K-pop stars showing up in cowboy-inspired outfits.
Musicians sing to celebrate the end of the pandemic. “Bruh, have you forgotten what I do for a living? / Still here, standing the test of time / I don’t care, I don’t care, that, I like that,” Suga raps on his verse.
“That That” is the title track from Psy’s ninth studio album “Psy 9th”, which was released along with the music video for the new song. The song was produced by Suga, and his involvement in the song was to end there. But the rapper, who is not one of the most enthusiastic dancers, became more deeply involved in the song after meeting Psy, his senior in the K-pop industry.
“Psy 9th” also includes several other collaborations, including “Celeb” with Bae Suzy, “Happier” with KR&B singer Crush, and a remake of Jermaine Jackson and Pia Zadora’s 1984 single “When The Rain Begins To Fall” with MAMAMOO member Hwasa. . Other features include Epik High’s Tablo, Heize, Sung Si-kyung, and Jessi.
