From the man who brought us “Gangnam Style” comes “나팔바지 (Napal Baji)”, a new track that takes us back to the 70s.
On 1st December (Tuesday), South Korean singer/rapper Psy made his epic comeback with his highly anticipated 7th studio album, “Chiljip PSY-Da”. The album was released alongside the music videos for his double title tracks, “Daddy” and “나팔바지 (Napal Baji)”.
As compared to the newly-released “Daddy” music video, the music video for “나팔바지 (Napal Baji)” is less traumatising and filled with tonnes of 70s-inspired looks.
The singer managed to incorporate a few popular dance moves from the 70s into the choreography of the retro track. It also seems like he also incorporated the famous dance moves from T-ara’s disco-inspired track, “Roly Poly”.
According to Koreaboo, this retro track is composed by Psy himself and Yoon Gun Hyung. The YG Entertainment artiste said that it is “the most PSY-like song” that he has ever composed. The name of the song roughly translates to “Bell Bottom” in Korean.
During a press conference held yesterday at the Grand Ball Room of the Conrad Hotel in Seoul, Psy said:
“DADDY” was completed in March last year. 7 seasons have gone by and I’m not even Beethoven. I’ve made many changes and put in a lot of thought into it.
“But I made “NAPAL BAJI” really quick after performing at a festival. I think it will be fun. One song was very difficult to make and the other wasn’t. People often say that it is the easy-made songs that do well, but we’ll have to see,” he added.

Psy’s “Chiljip PSY-Da” goes on sale today. The singer will hold his comeback stage at the 2015 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) on 2nd December (Wednesday).
