From ‘Oppa’ to ‘Appa’ – PSY’s New Music Video ‘Daddy’ And Lyrics Here!

It can be very difficult to top projects that go viral. Just ask Korean pop sensation PSY: the man behind Gangnam Style, the 2012 hit that made waves all over the world, of which the music video has now amassed a whopping 2.46 billion views on YouTube.

Gangnam Style is quite the tough act to follow, and even PSY himself acknowledges that. In a press conference for his latest album, Chiljip PSY-Da (This Is PSY’s Seventh Album in Korean), the singer revealed he felt a lot of pressure to live up to Gangnam Style’s success.

“Maybe it was pressure, maybe it was stress,” he said, according to the Korea Herald. “I kept thinking, ‘This won’t do as well as Gangnam (Style)… or if I changed it, ‘Overseas fans wouldn’t understand this.’ With every line I wrote, there were voices fighting in my head, and it took a while to get them all sorted out.”

PSY doesn’t seem to be in too much trouble, what with the release of his latest music video, DADDY, already hitting 1.4 million views — and it was only released yesterday. It is a more humorous video compared to other, more eloquent productions in the K-pop industry, but ultimately it is right up the alley of Gangnam Style’s feel — and PSY’s brand.

DADDY is one of the songs PSY wrote with American rapper Will.i.am of the musical group Black Eyed Peas. Will.i.am had apparently contributed to PSY’s album, and their collaboration is allegedly a remix of his hit, I Got It From My Mama.

Moreover, DADDY shares just a couple of similarities with Gangnam Style: both are catchy, both are dance-oriented, and both are downright funny. DADDY’s music video shows PSY’s face being superimposed on several people, from an old man to a young child. It additionally features labelmate CL of girl group 2NE1 while Korean actress Ha Ji-won makes an appearance as well.

Lyrics For PSY’s Daddy

[Chorus: PSY]
I got it from my daddy
Daddy

[Verse 1: PSY]
I feel nice, you look nice
널 보자마자 나 어머나 땡잡았스
Don’t think twice
이미 게임 끝났스

You’ll be my curry, I’ll be your rice
My name is P-S-Y
한국말로 박제상
너의 아련한 눈동자에
빠져서 헤엄치고파
오빠 달린다 꽉 붙잡아 언니야
나는 아름다운 아가씨의 동반자

[Pre-Chorus: PSY]
Hold up, wait a minute
지금부터 선수끼리
밤이 아까워, turn up louder
불타오르는 아름다운 그대여
How you like me now?
How you like me now?
How you like me now?
How you like me now?

[Chorus: PSY (CL)]
(Hey, where’d you get that body from?
Where’d you get that body from?
Where’d you get that body from?)
I got it from my daddy
I got it from my daddy
I got it got it
(Hey, where’d you get that body from?)
I got it from my daddy
I got it from my daddy
I got it got it
(Hey, where’d you get that body from?)
I got it from my dad, dad, dad, dad, dad
Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad
Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad, daddy
I got it from my dad, dad, dad, dad, dad
Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad
Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad, daddy

[Verse 2: PSY]
I’m on fire, take you higher
넌 한폭의 명작 난 아낌없는, buyer
Don’t be a liar, 까고 말해봐요
I be your honey, never expire

낮에는 잠만 자 밤이 오면 상남자
널 보자마자 나 너무 좋아서 뻑이 가
척 보면 압니다
신나면 어린애 입니다
오빠가 오방가 깜빡이 안 키고
훅 들어갑니다

[Pre-Chorus: PSY]
Hold up, wait a minute
지금부터 선수끼리
밤이 아까워, turn up louder
불타오르는 아름다운 그대여
How you like me now?
How you like me now?
How you like me now?
How you like me now?

[Chorus: PSY (CL)]
(Hey, where’d you get that body from?
Where’d you get that body from?
Where’d you get that body from?)
I got it from my daddy
I got it from my daddy
I got it got it
(Hey, where’d you get that body from?)
I got it from my daddy
I got it from my daddy
I got it got it
(Hey, where’d you get that body from?)
I got it from my dad, dad, dad, dad, dad
Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad
Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad, daddy
I got it from my dad, dad, dad, dad, dad
Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad
Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad, daddy

[Bridge: PSY]
Listen
My papa was a superman, hey
그대로 받아왔어 그 몸매, hey
신사이길 거부하는 신사
이 구역에 미친놈은 바로 나, hey

[Outro: PSY]
I got it from my dad, dad, dad, dad, dad
Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad
Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad, daddy
I got it from my dad, dad, dad, dad, dad
Dad, dad, dad, dad, dad
Dad, daddy

What do you think of DADDY? Is it better than PSY’s debut hit, or will it forever live under the shadow of Gangnam Style?
