South Korea — South Korean rapper PSY is set to release his first album since becoming an international sensation more than three years ago with the smash hit Gangnam Style.
The 37-year-old says the pressure to live up to that success caused him to take his time with his latest project.
"There were many thoughts going around in my head, including thoughts like, 'If I write like this, it would be not as good as Gangnam Style,' and 'If I write like this, the international audience will not understand,' so it took me a very long time to organize all those thoughts into one," PSY said at a news conference in Seoul on Monday, a day before Chiljip PSY-Da is set to debut.

Chiljip PSY-Da — which means This Is PSY's Seventh Album in Korean — comes about a year and a half after the release of his single Gentleman. It's his first album since 2012, when Gangnam Style swept the world with addictive music and dance moves and made PSY a global superstar.
Gangnam Style, featured on the album PSY 6, recorded 2.46 billion views on YouTube, becoming the most viewed YouTube video ever.
PSY's new album includes songs of various genres, including dance music, hip-hop and punk.
He said he tried to include many emotions, including happiness, anger, sadness, joy, love, hatred and greed, as he had done in his past albums.
The first hit released off his album is called Daddy. Is it another Gangnam Style hit? We're not to sure about that but the video sure is WTF weird!
