    Psy's new song "Gentlemen" has finally been released, but will it create as much attention as its predecessor? Gangnam Style was a sensational hit, achieving over a billion views on YouTube - but what do you make of his new single?

    The music video is in the link below:

    Just by listening to it, I'm not convinced. Depends on what dance goes with it because, let's face it, that was the whole reason Gangnam Style was so popular.

    Sorry, Harlem Shake, your time is up.

    Nope.

    Definitely not as catchy as Gangnam Style

    But the music video is funny

    Not unexpected: a disappointing song with a video as funny as all his other videos (Gangnam Style is far from his first, of course).

    Very disappointing though. The flow is awkward, and even the dance is pretty much the same, and the video isn't that funny actually.

    How many views he has on his second and third post-Gangnam release will show if he's still popular.

    He should have done the complete opposite to his last single and released a proper song (if he can't write one get a respected musician to write it for him) instead of taking what made Gangnam Style go viral and basically doing another version. The former would have shocked people and kept him relevant a bit longer.

    Imagine releasing a gimmick song like Gangnam Style then following it up with something actually respectable like Bohemian Rhapsody, nobody would have seen it coming.

    How would the producers cash in though? It seems now, instant success with catchy tunes seem to be prefered... :dontknow:

    Same way they cashed in with the first song? Dunno. I've not thought that far ahead, iPoop.

    Gangnam Style was actually a good song, that's why it did as well as it did combined with the funny video. L.M.F.A.O. doing a serious Bohemian Rhapsody would tank.

    Psy IS the producer.

    Psy owns the record label, so no conflict of interest.
    In that case then he lacks musical inspiration!

    And it would seem like he thinks the world needs gangnam style 2.0 :holmes: as opposed to something mesmerising and inspiring...:beard:
