Psy goes from 'Gangnam' to hip-hop style in new song Hangover

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Psy, who set off a global sensation with Gangnam Style, tried out a fresh sound on Sunday as he released a hip-hop tale of drunken debauchery co-starring rap legend Snoop Dogg.

Entitled Hangover, the South Korean star's new song returns to the Gangnam Style theme of material excess but eschews the giddy K-Pop arrangements of his 2012 megahit for more minimalist hip-hop beats. 

The video features Psy and the notoriously hard-partying Snoop Dogg on a night of intense boozing.

The subject matter is apparent from the video's first moments in which Psy vomits in a toilet bowl, only to start tapping his hands to the rhythm as Snoop Dogg jumps out of a bathtub revved up to party.
