At the American Music Awards, South Korean rapper PSY performed "Gangnam Style" with a special guest: MC Hammer. The performance was a mix of Gangnam Style and MC Hammer's "Too Legit."
South Korean rapper PSY has become famous on an international level for his music video called “Gangnam Style.” According to Google, Gangnam Style has a huge number of views in the nine digits and could possibly go up to almost one billion in the near future. PSY has become an international and Internet sensation because of that one song. It has inspired parodies. In terms of politics, people have used the song and dances as a means to protest against governments and so forth. It can be anybody's guess on how long the Gangnam Style craze is going to last.
There was talk about possible collaborations in the future. So far, PSY had his first collaboration; but, it kept mainly to Gangnam Style. However, it wasn't a record collaboration. It was an on-stage live collaboration at the American Music Awards. It was mainly PSY performing Gangnam Style and bringing along a special guest. This special guest, a blast from the past (early nineties), was MC Hammer. PSY and MC Hammer performed together as Gangnam Style was mixed with one of Hammer's hits “Too Legit.”
This idea wasn't born from a music studio. It was actually born out of Google Zeitgeist. It was revealed that Hammer was one of the people attending this event. This came to be with the meeting of MC Hammer and Scooter Braun in which the latter represents PSY. Braun said that PSY was a fan of MC Hammer. After talking, PSY and Hammer ended up performing together at the AMAs. The next question is: Who's PSY going to perform with next?
