Piko Taro Joins Psy in His Latest Music Video

Music Video

Ever since Piko Taro took the world by storm in the summer of 2016 with his viral YouTube hit "PPAP,“ people everywhere have been drawing comparisons between him and fellow YouTube superstar Psy, who broke records with his 2012 hit "Gangnam Style."

The two stars do have remarkably similar styles, with memorable outfits, larger-than-life personas, catchy tunes and easy-to-follow dance moves being their winning formula for success. If there was any speculation of rivalry between the two performers, however, those rumors can be put to rest, as Piko Taro has now popped up in Psy’s new music video clip for his latest hit "I Luv It."

As one of the title tracks from Psy’s latest album, titled "4×2=8," the music video for "I Luv It" has already racked up more than five million views since appearing on YouTube less than a day ago.

Just like the galloping, horseriding move seen in "Gangnam Style," this new song comes with a number of smooth steps that have us wanting to get up and dance like nobody’s watching!

While no official explanation has been given for Piko Taro’s appearance in Psy’s new music video, it’s not the first time Piko has rubbed shoulders with famous stars. Having already appeared alongside Justin Bieber and Cookie Monster and Elmo, Psy is Piko Taro’s latest celebrity crush, and given his love for unique collaborations, who knows where he’ll be popping up next!
