South Korean rapper Psy’s music video for his new song “Hangover” surpassed 50 million views on YouTube on Saturday, just six days after its release, his agency said.

As of noon on Saturday, the video had some 53 million views on Youtube after debuting on Monday, according to YG Entertainment.

The music video, which was shot in Seoul, depicts South Korea’s drinking culture and nightlife. In the video, Psy and American hip-hop star Snoop Dogg have drinks to cure their hangovers and visit some late-night venues such as a karaoke room, a convenience store and a billiard hall.

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.”

Viewers have expressed mixed reactions to the South Korean rapper’s latest song.

Some fans welcomed the viral sensation’s grand comeback, while others expressed their disappointment and concern over the song.

Psy rose to international stardom with his global mega-hit “Gangnam Style,” which set a record by topping 2 billion views on YouTube.

Psy heralded the coming of his new single, saying “New single ‘Daddy’ coming this summer” in a message inserted at the closing part of the “Hangover” video.
