The rapper, whose hit song made history as the most-watched video on YouTube, will perform jointly with Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte Friday in the northeastern city of Salvador, the Gilette company said.
The week-long Salvador Carnival, often dubbed the biggest street party in the world, attracts two million people annually.
The next day, Psy will take part in the world-famous Rio Carnival, Gilette said without giving further details.
Psy, whose real name is Park Jae-sang, made Internet history last December when “Gangnam Style” ― featuring his signature horse-riding dance ― clocked more than one billion views on YouTube.
The 35-year-old quirky singer won adulation in his homeland for the global hit and has been awarded one of South Korea’s highest cultural honors, the Okgwan Order of Cultural Merit.
