The music video for “Gangnam Style,” released last month, so far has garnered more than 49 million views on YouTube. The bright, vibrant clip features the comedic and flamboyant PSY delivering somewhat bizarre choreography while rapping and singing in Korean over a thumping, dance-flavored beat.

South Korean rapper PSY says he’ll unveil his much-awaited follow-up to “Gangnam Style” next month and celebrate it with a huge concert in Seoul.

PSY made the announcement Friday on YouTube, where his “Gangnam Style” video has a record 1.39 billion views.

PSY said he’ll release the new single on April 13 and hold a concert at a soccer stadium that evening. He’s dubbed the concert “Happening” and says it will be broadcast live on YouTube.

The rapper, whose real name is Park Jae-sang, has been on a worldwide tour since his viral video made a global splash in July, with its catchy tune and much-imitated horse-riding dance. He recently released a “Gangnam Style” remix and performed at the inauguration ceremony for South Korea’s new president.
