South Korean rapper Psy is back with a wild new single, and this time he’s tapped US rap legend Snoop Dogg for a night of brews, brawling, billiards, and babes in the new video for “Hangover.”
Psy would be hard pressed to top the 2012 smash hit “Gangnam Style,” but he’ll be giving it his best shot with “Hangover.” The catchy, bilingual tune features both Psy and Snoop rapping in their native languages. In true Psy fashion, the video is half the fun.
The wild video for “Hangover” features the two rappers taking it out on the town, with Psy showing Snoop his home turf for a night of totally responsible drinking. “Hangover” gives us terrific visuals like a half (we hope) naked Psy lounging in a green fountain, Psy and Snoop Dogg in a game of drunken billiards, and the requisite panoply of shots of Psy making some outlandishly odd faces.
“Hangover” also features the requisite array of video dancers shaking their money makers, but Psy and Snoop appear to don their beer goggles halfway through “Hangover” to party on the town with two women who might not be exactly what they appear. There’s a wild karaoke scene that – as these things do – turns into a slow dance, with Psy and Snoop getting close and personal with some older women while “that dude” takes up the lyrical duties. Then, it’s off to the amusement park.
About the only thing this “Hangover” vid is missing is Zach Galifianakis, Mike Tyson, and a three wolf moon shirt. Considering how the latter Hangover movies turned out, though, we’ll stick to Snoop and Psy’s vision of a night out.
The new track will have some stiff competition for the song of the summer, even with a catchy hook and Snoop Dogg guesting. Other hypnotic party tracks are tearing up the charts right now, including Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What?” and Vanilla Ice clone Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy.”
(Yeah, we said it. Yeah, you know it’s true.)
“Hangover” is the lead single off Psy’s forthcoming new album, but it’s not like Psy’s still got to work. “Gangnam Style,” released in 2012, just recently crossed the two billion-viewer mark. In the time that humanity has spent watching Psy’s last hit video, one could write every article in Wikipedia… twice. While the world is still recovering from Psy’s last mega-hit, though, the rapper isn’t resting on his laurels, and he’s determined to give us a “Hangover” with his new one.
