PSY will probably never top 2012's "Gangnam Style" as long as he lives, but he certainly knows how to get his new single the most exposure he can.

The Korean rapper/K-pop entertainer’s dance tune - maybe you heard it - has garnered over 2 billion views on YouTube, the most of any video. Ever.

So what better place to debut his follow-up?

Will it be any good? We'll have to find out!

Yesterday was PSY's 35th birthday, and one the Korean rapper will never forget.

As December 31 drew to a close, PSY and special guest Hammer reprised their epic American Music Awards performance with another joint effort in Times Square.

Watch the awesomely odd couple's Gangnam Style / 2 Legit 2 Quit mashup:

Two main takeaways from their New Year's Rockin' Eve 2013 performance:

  1. Hammer is 50! And still has pretty unreal dance moves and pants.
  2. PSY's semi-botched English interview was awfully endearing.

If he is retiring the song after this, he went out on a positive note.

In the spirit of the holidays, the Washington establishment appears to have forgiven the "Gangam Style" sensation for his controversial 2004 anti-American rap.

"Gangnam Style" rapper PSY is in hot water over anti-American statements and lyrics he belted out at a 2004 anti-war protest concert came to light.

Among the incendiary lyrics: "Kill those f--king Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives / Kill those f--king Yankees who ordered them to torture."

"Kill their daughters, mothers, daughter-in-law and fathers / Kill them all slowly and painfully."

Yeah. Not good.
