 Psy is back with the much anticipated follow-up to the 2012 chart-topper “Gangnam Style,” releasing his latest single, “Gentleman,” to much fanfare.

The song, which is reminiscent of the instantly recognizable “Gangnam Style,” is an electro-pop dance tune, but this time Psy isn’t mocking the posh, materialistic nouveau riche of Seoul.
