Viral videos and hit songs are well thought-out things, right? Well according to Korean star Psy, his smash hit “Gangnam Style” was actually an accident.
The song and video, which has surpassed 1.5 billion views on YouTube, spoke at Harvard University recently and explained how the whole thing wasn’t thought-out or planned at all.
“‘Gangnam Style’ was not normal. ‘Gangnam’ was not standard – that was an accident and accidents don’t happen often,” he says.
The entertainer also admits that he doesn’t expect to match the success of “Gangnam Style” and has no expectations, even though his follow-up single “Gentleman” has already been viewed over 300 million times online.Tweet
