Remember Psy? Yes, the same South Korean rapper who basically owned 2012 with his K-pop sensation 'Gangnam Style'. He is back with another bizarre new video 'Daddy', and it has gone viral within just a few hours of going online.

Released on Nov 30, Psy's 'Daddy' music video has now generated more than 12 million views.

A gender-flipped version of will.i.am’s 'I got it from my Mama', 'Daddy' has Psy at different phases of his life, with his adult face superimposed over a baby, then an errant schoolchild, a hairy-chested salsa dancer, and finally over an vigorously-dancing elderly gentleman.

It features lyrics such as “You be my curry, I’ll be your rice”, and "Hey, where did you get that body from? … I got it from my daddy”.

Psy has also announced the release of a new album, 'Psy 7th Album', to correspond with the 'Daddy' video.

Psy acknowledged Monday to AFP that he could never repeat the phenomenal global success of his 2012 hit, but said he was perfectly happy being "just another" K-pop artist.

The quirky South Korean singer was catapulted to unlikely international stardom after the "Gangnam Style" music video, with its invisible horse-riding dance, went viral.

The song — a satire of the luxury lifestyle of residents in Seoul's glitzy Gangnam district -- remains the most-watched video of all time on YouTube, with more than 2.4 billion views.

The 37-year-old singer said the success of the song and the expectations that came with it had sometimes been difficult to cope with.
