His follow-up song ‘Gentleman’ also cemented his popularity, as it achieved 5th position on America’s Billboard. PSY’s ‘Hangover’ which was released in June of this year, entered American Billboard chart at No.26, as he showed his staying power. He recently filmed the MV for his new song ‘Daddy’, and has left everyone looking forward to his comeback. PSY’s unique charms and energy will no doubt light up the stage, and make his fans go wild.
