PSY released the music video for the song ‘Celeb’ featuring Bae Suzy on Wednesday (3/5). Celeb’s music video was finally released after PSY had leaked a bit about the clip in 2019.
The music video begins with Suzy miming as if playing the piano. This then continues with snippets of Suzy’s activities as a ‘Celeb’, from appearing on stage, greeting media colleagues, to partying.
Another interesting thing in the clip, PSY displays elements around celebrity life, for example, trends in mass media as well as the use of social media that affect his popularity.
Previously, PSY mentioned the collaboration with Suzy on Celeb three years ago. On the sidelines of a Summer Swag concert in 2019, the founder of agency P Nation teased fans with a sneak peek of the music video for Celeb, which is part of his latest album, PSY 9th.
The album was supposed to be released in July 2019. However, the plan had to be postponed due to Covid-19 and finally released in late April 2022.
Meanwhile, the song ‘Celeb’ involves Block B’s Zico and Yoo Gun-hyung for the musical arrangement, while PSY and Zico are responsible for the lyrics. For the music video itself, PSY took Bae Suzy, a former member of the girl group Miss A.
Based on CNNIndonesia.com monitoring on Wednesday (4/5) evening, the music video has garnered more than 7.4 million views on YouTube.
Previously, PSY released the music video for ‘That That’ on Friday (29/4). ‘That That’ involves BTS’ Suga as a producer and duet partner. In the MV That That, PSY and Suga BTS are seen acting like cowboys.
The movie-like clip also shows the presence of a cowboy-style Suga who is about to have a shootout with his opponent.
After its release, the song shot to the top of the realtime Bugs chart in Korea, which was then followed by topping the iTunes chart.
Meanwhile, the album ‘PSY 9th’ also gained achievements by topping the iTunes Top Albums chart in several regions including Indonesia, Singapore and Taiwan.
