Just when we thought we’d finally escaped the wrath of K-Pop overlord PSY, he sends another missile to the Western world.
The ‘mastermind’ behind 2012’s ‘Gangnam Style’ released a new song disturbingly titled ‘Daddy’.
To sum up the auto-tune overload that is ‘Daddy’, the song is about Psy being ‘genetically blessed’, thanks to his father – giving us a male version of the clichéd and overdone topic of women getting their assets from their mothers.
‘Daddy’ also features vocals from CL (a member of K-Pop girl group 2NE1 that, in typical K-Pop fashion, is at least ten years younger than Psy) repeatedly asking where Psy got his body from.
To make matters worse, the music video features the typical bizarre chaos of a K-Pop music video – a simple dance routine for everyone to perform at social gatherings, but the most disturbing aspect of the clip has to be Psy’s portrayal of an old man, a professional dancer, and even a child.
With the failure of previous songs like ‘Gentleman’ and ‘Hangover’, with Snoop Dogg you would think ‘Daddy’ would follow suit. Unfortunately, however, it has already placed at #50 on the Australian iTunes charts.
Do you think Psy’s latest effort is catchy or disturbing? You be the judge.
I'm keeping you in the loop with the mainstream world of music and your guilty Spotify private-browsing pleasures.
