Psy’s melodies and unforgettable dance moves are officially back after nearly five years away from music. On Thursday, the South Korean superstar returned with the premiere of a chaotic music video for his brand-new song “That That.”

“That that, I like that/That that, I like that baby/It’s like that,” the “Gangnam Style” singer repeats on the chorus.

To many of its fans, K-pop culture is not only about fashion, food and entertainment, but also a community where marginalized groups can come together.

In a series of promotional videos, the two artists rave about the experience of working together for the first time.

“It felt like working with a childhood friend so it made the songwriting process that much more fun. … We became besties in a way,” Suga said.

“He [Suga] wasn’t my junior in the business, but also he truly feels like a friend,” Psy added. “If he thinks of me as a bestie, that’s great for me.”

By Friday afternoon, the music video had already been viewed more than 13 million times and was at No. 2 for trending music on YouTube.

Fans of Olivia Rodrigo and K-pop sensation BTS had a lot to unpack after V flirted with her at Sunday’s Grammys during the band’s performance of “Butter.”
