Okay, raise your hand if you thought that Psy was going to be nothing more than a one-hit wonder after his massive, worldwide hit Gangnam Style? I mean, we saw the dance at every wedding and every club in 2012. Wasn’t that enough Psy for a lifetime?
Apparently not. Psy is back and in typical Psy fashion, the South Korean hitmaker has returned in a big way. This time Psy has hooked up with Snoop Dogg to create an odd party time hip-hop inspired music video that flaunts a shot-taking boozy night, followed up by a hangover-filled morning.
Drink til you drunk
Smoke like a broke’ stove
Don’t quit take flight
I can’t remember last night
It’s aight this the life of a superstar
Check out the unlikely dapper duo partying all night and puking the next morning, to only party again the next day:
Since being uploaded Sunday night, the Hangover video has been viewed more than 10 million times. That’s 10 million times in less than 20 hours.
It still has a ways to go to catch up with Gangnam Style, which surpassed the two billion hit mark. However, the immediate success of Hangover could mean that the song could easily contend for party anthem of the summer. So, it seems possible that Psy could have another ubiquitous hit that has staying power. Teaming up with Snoop Dogg certainly doesn’t hurt.
So far, the Twitter reaction has been mixed:

If you’re wondering if Psy and Snoop Dogg actually partied when the cameras stopped rolling, Psy reported to TMZ last month that, “We were hangover.”
What do you think of the video?
