He first started talking about the single back in August 2014, but after 15 months of delays and speculation, PSY has finally returned to the music scene in spectacular style with his new track, “Daddy”
Joined by 2NE1 rapper CL, the 37-year-old viral sensation dresses up as a child (with the help of some computer trickery) to pull off a number of hilarious dance moves.
In later scenes he appears as an old man alongside a group of similarly-aged women, all vying for his attention.
“Daddy” is the first release to be taken from his new album “Chiljip Psy-da,” which comes over three years and five months after Psy 6-gap, which the unforgettable “Gangnam Style” featured on.
The single is actually a play on will.i.am’s 2007 release, “I Got It From My Mama,” which uses the same catchy hook “where’d you get that body from,” which is now CL’s line in this updated version.
At a press conference in Seoul on Monday, November 30, PSY said, “It’s been too long… Maybe it was pressure, maybe it was stress, I kept thinking, ‘This won’t do as well as Gangnam [Style]…’ or if I changed it, ‘overseas fans wouldn’t understand this.’ With every line I wrote, there were voices fighting in my head, and it took a while to get them all sorted out.”

At one point even his management at YG Entertainment didn’t know what he was working on anymore. But executive producer and agency head Yang Hyun Suk says he now understands the rapper’s ways. “The answer to PSY’s music is letting him do what he desires,” he has explained. “Because PSY was the person who created the ‘Gangnam Style’ phenomenon all over the globe, it is only natural that we let him do what he wants.”
