On 1 December 2015, PSY released his 7th complete album titled “Chiljip PSY-da”, which he has been promoting for the past weeks. He released the two title track “Daddy” which features fellow YG artist, CL; and “Napal Baji” or as it’s known, Bell Bottoms.

In a matter of hours, the two music videos of the title tracks garnered a lot of attention, with “Daddy” getting over a million views, and Bell Bottoms achieving over half a million views.

It’s known that PSY’s “Gangnam Style” music video is the most watched YouTube video, and all of his videos after that have had hundreds of millions of views.

The album includes other high anticipated Korean and international collaborations such as “I Remember You” which features Zion.T, “Dream” which features Xia of JYJ, “ROCKnROLLbaby” which features will.i.am, “Ahjussi Swag” which features Gaeko, and “Sing” with Ed Sheeran.

He also held a press conference on November 30 at the Conrad Hotel where he discussed the immense success of “Gangnam Style” and the consequent burden, and to celebrate the release of his latest album.

according to ALLKPOP, reporters asked him to compare his double title tracks “Daddy” and “Bell Bottoms” to “Gangnam Style,” and he replied, “I will do no such comparison.  The weight of ‘Gangnam Style’ was too heavy, so I don’t even go to Gangnam often.  I will politely decline from any comparison with ‘Gangnam Style.’  More than that, please listen to how I created the nine songs in the album with the utmost care.”

He also said during the press conference, “It took too long [for me to release new music]. It took two years and eight months since ‘Gentleman’ and three years and five months since my sixth album.  I did not know it would take this long.  Just like how they say that there is a time studying is the easiest for honor students, there was a period of time where music was the easiest for me, but as the netizens said, I thought that no matter what I wrote, whether I was feeling oppressed, stressed, or had the American disease, I thought that if I wrote like this, it would not live up to ‘Gangnam Style.’
