We will not be the ones to deny that even when we remember Gangnam Style it makes us want to dance and sing at the top of our lungs. This song marked a before and after in the career of its interpreter, PSY, but it was also a turning point for the expansion of K-pop around the world. Since the singer released this hit song, many things have happened and now, after so long, he has returned with an album that has left us all speechless.
The title song of the album is called That That and it is in collaboration with none other than Suga, one of the rappers of the group BTS. In addition, the group member has also been the producer of the song, as outside of the group’s activities, he also produces for big artists. Since its release on the afternoon of April 29 (KST), the MV of That That has over 60 million hourly views.
Written and produced between the two, the song has a beat that you won’t be able to get out of your head and that appeals to everyone who listens to it. This is one of the reasons why PSY chose this song as the lead single of his ninth studio album, PSY 9th.
PSY, whose real name is Park Jae-sang, revealed in an interview all the details of how this collaboration with Min Yoongi (Suga) came about. “One day, I received a text message from an unknown number. It said, ‘Hi, this is Suga. I want to talk to you about something.’ So we met”. “Suga is a great artist, but he’s really good at writing music”, PSY continued.
“He has made many songs for other stars before this one and he told me that he wants to be the first in his production plan by giving me a song”,PSY Said
Moreover, PSY surprised Suga since as they revealed, originally Yoongi did not know that he would also rap and dance along with him, but the latter fully involved him in the song in a sneaky way. “We worked on the song together and he appeared in the song. I want to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to him,” the Korean artist commented.
PSY 9th has 12 songs and also includes collaborations with K-Pop big names such as Sung Si-kyung, Heize, Crush, Tablo, Jessi and Hwasa from the girl band Mamamoo.
Undoubtedly, this track has all the chances to become one of the hits of 2022.
