Released today (April 29), the clip sees both the ‘Gangnam Style’ singer and the BTS rapper dressed in cowboy outfits as they dance to the energetic track. The music video is set in an Wild West-style town in the middle of a desert, as the musicians sing about celebrating the end of the pandemic.
“Brush, you frogot what I do for a living? / Still her withstanding the test of time / I don’t care, I don’t care, that, I like that,” Suga raps on his verse. ‘That That’ is the title track of Psy’s ninth studio album ‘Psy 9th’, which was released as the same time as the music video for the new song..
‘Psy 9th’ also features several other collaborations, including ‘Celeb’ with Bae Suzy, ‘Happier’ featuring K-R&B singer Crush, and a remake of Jermaine Jackson and Pia Zadora’s 1984 hit single ‘When The Rain Begins To Fall’ with MAMAMOO member Hwasa. Other features include Epik High‘s Tablo, Heize, Sung Si-kyung and Jessi.
Earlier this week, when Psy and Suga were teasing ‘That That’, the duo revealed that the BTS member was not originally meant to feature on the song. “To be honest, I haven’t gotten that close with anyone I collab[orate] with, it’s because I’m not usually the type to meet up with collaborators in person,” Suga explained. “But [Psy] he wanted to see me in person.”
The BTS rapper noted that while they were working on the song, the duo “back and forth a lot”, and admitted that he never saw himself going as far as being featured on the song and appearing in the music video. “I seriously didn’t expect to be dancing with Psy. Ah… I thought I was only writing the song,” he added.
