Justin Bieber May Record His Own Version Of Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’

Korean_Rapper_Psy

South Korean rapper Psy (Park Jae-Sang) is riding high — perhaps literally given his unique horse dance moves– with the viral music video “Gangnam Style,” and Justin Bieber may want a piece of the action.

According to ChannelNewsAsia, Psy is on his way to America to “explore collaboration opportunities” with Justin Bieber, and that “speculation is rife that Bieber may work with Psy to create a US adaptation of the song.”

On the other hand, Psy is denying any joint projects with Justin Bieber in connection with “Gangnam Style.” He told The Wall Street Journal that “No, that’s not true. But it is true that I am going to meet with Scooter Braun, who produced Justin Bieber…It will just be a casual meeting.”

Psy also told the WSJ that the music video’s popularity outside of Korea was a surprise: “But since I’ve been always a singer for the local market, it never occurred to me that people outside the country would listen to my music. I didn’t even have overseas fans. When I wrote the song, I had only one thing in mind — to create a fun song.”

“Gangnam Style” has received about 29 million hits on YouTube to date. Gangnam referenced in the title is one of Seoul’s trendiest neighborhoods along the lines of Beverly Hills, California. Time explains that “Much of the video features PSY riding an invisible horse through the streets of the Seoul’s Gangnam district, which gives you a pretty good sense of the clip’s tongue-in-cheek vibe.”

Psy has also just released a follow-up version of “Gangnam Style” with the same beat called “Oppa Is Just My Style” but apparently from a woman’s point of view. Watch it here:

“Gangnam Style” is everywhere. In between innings of any professional baseball game, the ballpark tries to keep the fans’ attention. In this video, the cheerleaders, mascot and even apparently the security guard dance to “Gangnam Style” at the Doosan Bears game in Seoul:

    Oh god, please no.. Bieber, no just no. Please just stick to your own horrible music. Kpop is a special thing, if you try to remake it, then it won't be so special anymore, and it won't be Korean either, it will just be, that song that Justin remade into a crappy english song -.- oh god why?

    Ew, he shouldn't. It feels like he's trying to ride off PSY's fame and get some more fans of his own. News flash, it'll just as well get you more hate. /cries/ I don't want.

    Ce serait tout simplement inacceptable. PSY n'a rien à voir avec Justin Bieber. Je ne parle pas en tant que personne qui n'aime pas JB mais tout simplement en tant que personne qui reconnait la différence de style musical entre ces deux artistes là. Si JB parle de refaire Gangnam style pour que ce soit plus adapté aux États-Unis, il va BRISER la chanson totalement. Même si PSY voulait la faire pour être plus adapté aux US, ça la briserait. Gangnam Style, c'est du KPOP et non du POP américain/comercialisé. Rien ne ressemble au style de PSY alors, par pitié… PSY… ne laisse pas Justin scraper ton bébé…

    A part of me wants Bieber to remake this song. Why? Because he'll eff it up and ruin his career. He'll try to copy PSY's tongue in cheek style and dance moves only to make himself look like an unoriginal little punk. Which is exactly what he is already, but the entire world will finally realize it. Then, in a grand twist of luck, PSY wins a lawsuit against Bieber for ruining his name and reputation. PSY goes on to become even greater and Bieber lives drunk and penniless on the streets of LA.

    well it's October now and so far no shit beiber remake, so we may be in the clear, I wish that little arrogant kid would drop off the face of the earth already.
