Did Park Jae Sang, or PSY’s song “Gangnam Style” copy or borrow from LMFAO?

comments:

“borrow from LMFAO” LMFAO is LMFAO and PSY is PSY. They don’t need to borrow or copy anything. PSY is awesome. He doesn’t need to “borrow” from anyone. PSY has been in the music industry long enough to know that.”

“PSY is not actually an underground singer..he’s signed to what many consider the best company in korea. YG Entertainment which is one of Korea’s Big Three entertainment companies along with SM and JYP. Artists from YG are 2NE1, Big Bang, Teddy, Se7eN, and Gummy among others, they are considered korea’s top stars.”

“he’s been around longer, Americans tend to co-opt everything as ours.

just think of the writer trying to make the track more relatable to his readers  LMFAO is probably synthpop which has been around since the 70/80s it’s not like they invented the genre.  I doubt that’s what the guy is saying

also keep in mind that Psy’s sound changes radically pretty much every album as he becomes interested in different stuff”

>>>just because someone is around longer, doesn’t mean they can ‘borrow’ whatever is hot in market right now right? i mean, it’s just smart marketing, same goes for pit bull and making dance songs. just because someone has been around longer doesn’t mean they make new styles, just mean this guy is doing it korean AND lmfao style, no??

anyhoo, via dailydot:

Just how awesome is PSY’s “Gangnam Style”? We’ve counted the ways.

About neaat

The NETWORK OF ENTERTAINING ASIAN AMERICAN TALENT ORG is an independent site for information on Asian American Arts, Talent, Culture, and Entertainment. NEAATO started as a myspace page under http://www.myspace.com/asianamericannetwork and also a blog in 2007 (http://www.neaat.wordpress.com/) by Donnytello Tran. The idea was made when we noticed our friends on Myspace were posting more information about their work online through bulletins instead of waiting to get published in magazines or an Asian American Blog. We decided to put all these ‘posts’ together and share it with anyone that was interested and NEAATO was born. The current NEAATO blog site is http://www.neaato.com/. NEAATO was inspired by Bruce Lee’s quote: “"To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.”
