South Korean rapper Psy uploaded the video of his latest song "Hangover" on YouTube on Monday morning, hours ahead of the song's official release.

Also released on the official blog ( of YG Entertainment, the rapper's local management agency, the video comically features Korea's unique drinking culture. 

It depicted Psy and the famous American hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg having drinks to cure their hangovers and gimbap at a convenience store, making bomb cocktails and going to a sauna after drinking.

The video also had scenes showing the two men on a date with women at an amusement park and in a karaoke room.

The two rappers teamed up for the new hip-hop song, with most of the lyrics in English and some in Korean.

The video does not have unique dance moves like in the videos of Psy's previous hit songs: "Gangnam Style" and "Gentleman."

Psy heralded the coming of his new single album, saying "New single 'Daddy' coming this summer" in a message inserted at the closing part of the "Hangover" video.

The song "Hangover" is scheduled to be released worldwide on iTunes at midnight Monday (U.S. Eastern Standard Time), or 1 p.m.

on Monday in Korea.

It marks the first song to be released by Psy since "Gentleman"

in April last year. "Gangnam Style," a 2012 mega-hit song that earned Psy global fame, set a record by topping 2 billion views on YouTube on May 31. (Yonhap)
