Psy will go it alone on "Gangnam Style" Follow Up

It wasn't enough to create a worldwide global army of fans bewitched by the "Gangnam Style"; no, Psy is coming back for more expecting to follow the success of his popular hit, and he will be doing it alone.

After his performance on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' eve", he told MTV News that he was "ending" the song, because it "became too popular". "I'm thinking of doing it by myself", said the South Korean idol about the follow-up single, which –according to Psy- will put him front and centre.

"I don't think I'll be doing any collaborations until my new track is done, and it's not done yet, but I'm thinking of doing it by myself, so I can prove I can do it one more time," Psy told MTV News. "And I'm working hard on it, because I've got to be good with the track and the video, and I've got to be able to perform it on the stage."

Therefore, it looks like there will be no collaboration with Diplo and 2 Chainz after all, though he has been taking inspiration from a few of his pop contemporaries.

"I really like (Rihanna's) ‘We Found Love,' and these days I've been listening to ‘Scream & Shout' by and Britney Spears," he said. "And, of course, all year, I have liked what Usher has done, too".

Psy knows it will be hard to match "Gangnam Style" success, yet he views that pressure as a good thing since he hopes to become a genuine K-pop pioneer this year.

"If you look at K-pop, it's kind of popular around the world, but it is known for some skinny boys and pretty girls", he said. "So I'm proud to be here without that skinny body. If I can do it, anybody can".
