You will need "stay on your lane" Alicia Secret is pop megastarregulate ego Skye Summers says in this week's episode of "Empire," or else your enthusiasts volitiondesolate tract you.
The 37-year-old South Korean rapper Psy will almost certainlyat all times existperfectreferred to as the goofy guy dancing in the "Gangnam Style" tune video, the maximum viewed clip in the history of the Internet. That maytake place when billions of folks see you in something. And he will haveeffortlessly stayed in that lane, turning out slapstick techno-rap for the remainder of his career.
Instead, on his first full-length since July of 2012, the "7th Album," released Tuesday, Psy throws away the script and adopts a technique of never being afraid to leave from the birthday celebrationsurroundings momentarily, to hammer housea truly perfect hook.
That's no longerto mention Psy does not throw in ample of the puffed up audiohe'smost sensible known for, to meet his more not easy fans, on songs like "DADDY" featuring 2NE1 frontwoman CL (with its ubiquitous yet hilarious over-the-top video) and "ROCKnROLLbaby" with Black Eyed Peas rapper will.i.am.
But even at those peak power moments, there's ahint of melancholic introspection which pervades anything of the album even more so, practically like a bachelor shaken out of his funk by capacity ofa palon the town who forces him out to into the nightlife. His sadness is still there, just dissipated in the haze of the dance floor.
And most surprisingly, these are the most productive moments of Psy's "7th Album."
The rap he delivers on "Dream" featuring Kim "Xia" Junsu of JYJ channeling his musical theater background to provide an odd '80s homage energy ballad, is some of his most efficientpaintingsat the mic yet. It is exciting to look Psy so willing to drop his personality and to make noticeable innovations in his versatility as an MC.
The most effective moment of the "7th Album" could also be its most somber, as Jun In Kwon contributes an attractive reggae-infused vocal on "The Day Will Come." Whilst tracks like the album opener "Dance Jockey" and Ahjussi Swag" featuring Dynamic Duo's Gaeko be offering a glimpse to a more biological direction for Psy's music to move in, all while keeping up its keyboard-generation punch.
Sure, Psy might accept stayed in his lane and risked nothing. Yethere is an artist who was once honing his sound for more than a decade ahead of "Gangnam Style" and even though he would possibly silentno longer be afraid to play the idiot for a couple of laughs, at his middle he in point of factis solely an electronic dance music aficionado searching fora superb groove.
For any person more fascinated by style than substance, that edition of Psy is so muchmore uncomplicated to like.
