PSY has revamped and re-upped his multi-platinum, history-making phenomenon “Gangnam Style” with the star-studded GANGNAM STYLE REMIX STYLE EP, available digitally on March 5 via School Boy/Republic Records. The collection features fiery new guest spots by hip-hop titans 2 Chainz and Tyga on one track and remixing from electronic dance music titans Diplo and Afrojack.
These remixes take “Gangnam Style” straight to the dance floor with propulsive production and uncontainable club energy courtesy of some of the biggest presences in the EDM scene. Meanwhile, 2 Chainz and Tyga add their own flavor to the massive hit, giving it another dimension altogether.
“Gangnam Style” has solidified PSY as a bona fide superstar, with the music video for “Gangnam Style” being the first clip ever to reach 1 billion views on YouTube/VEVO. It also holds the Guinness World Record for “most-viewed” on the site, unseating Justin Bieber’s 2010-released “Baby”. It’s the “most-liked” video on the hub with over 5.8 million “Likes.” And the video shows no signs of stopping still. Views range between 7 and 10 million daily for “Gangnam Style”, and countless fan-generated versions have popped up wracking up their own plethora of eyeballs.
PSY also has been honored recently in the U.S. and across the Atlantic. At the 2012, MTV Europe Music Awards, “Gangnam Style” received the top honor for “Best Video”, while at the American Music Awards, he took home their coveted trophy as this year’s “New Media Honoree.”
Last Thanksgiving, PSY popped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for a very special holiday rendition of the song. That followed a string of successful high-profile TV appearances including the Today Show, Saturday Night Live, Ellen DeGeneres, ABC’s Nightline, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and The View. Psy also closed out his stellar chart-topping year with a performance of the hit song onABC’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve w/ Ryan Seacrest live from Times Square on Dec 31st.
PSY has also graced the cover of Billboard Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, and has been featured prominently in Time Magazine, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, New York Times, L.A. Times, GQ, People, Maxim, and more.
