The wait for PSY’s new single is over. “Gentleman” leaked earlier today, a day before its scheduled release, and it’s not as innocent as some may think.
The 35-year-old K-pop star’s “Gangnam Style” follow-up is exactly what you’d expect – and maybe a bit more, in terms of the raunch factor. “Gentleman” features familiar club beats heard throughout his breakthrough single “Gangnam Style.” But what is he really saying?
In between raps in Korean, he sings, “Damn girl, you’re so freakin’ sexy” before he asserts, “I’m a mother father gentleman.”
Things get a bit more explicit, though. He sings: “Gonna make you sweat/Gonna make you wet/You know who I am? Wet PSY!”
Meanwhile, he continues to rap in Korean. “Why does it have to be slippery/Your head, your hip, your calf, it’s soft/You make me gasp.”
While we’re not quite sure this song will embody its own dance routine like the YouTube sensation that was “Gangnam Style,” Billboard reports that PSY just finished filming the music video on Tuesday in Seoul so we’re bound to find out soon enough.
“Gangnam Style” debuted on YouTube in July of last year; by November, it had broken Justin Bieber’s record of 803,732,000 views to become the most-viewed video on YouTube.
PSY’s new single will be available for purchase on iTunes at midnight tonight.
