PSY's comeback album 4X2=8 is all set to hit the stores on May 10. Meanwhile, PSY's agency YG Entertainment has confirmed that the album will star an array of YG artists including BIGBANG's G-Dragon and Taeyang, Epik High's Tablo, iKON's B.I and Bobby, and actress Lee Sung Kyung.
A statement from the agency stated, "Only YG artists have worked with Psy this time, while the singer's seventh album in 2015 featured artists from other agencies such as Zion.T, Dynamic Duo, and JYJ's Junsu."
The album will have 10 songs with two title tracks, namely, I LUV IT and New Face. Earlier, PSY released the full track list of the album on his Twitter handle, but, it is still unclear what 4X2=8 symbolises.
PSY's last album release was "Chiljip Psy-da" which included the double lead tracks "Daddy" and "Napal Baji," almost 18 months back. This will be his eighth studio album.
PSY's first full-length album was "Psy from the Psycho World!" in 2001. However, it kickstarted few controversies for its vulgar lyrics. His popularity rose in 2012 after hits like "Gangnam Style," "Gentleman" and "Hangover."
PSY's "Gangnam Style" still holds the YouTube record for the highest number of hits. It garnered more than 800 million hits and 2.8 billion views. The song became a massive hit across the globe and PSY became an international sensation overnight. In December 2012, MTV noted PSY's rise from little-known outside South Korea to an international superstar, and, for being first in the YouTube-era to secure a place in pop-culture history, hailed the singer as the "Viral Star of 2012."
The song had topped the music charts of more than 30 countries including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
