"Hopefully I can release that during the summer season."Psy's fans got to know a little more about the rapper on a personal level during the video segment of the online radio programme in which Psy answered questions that had been sent in by his fans. One fan asked the rapper who he most wanted to do a collaboration with in the future.About the best part of being an artist, Psy said, "After 'Gangnam Style' I had so many unrealistic chances such as dancing with Britney Spears, MC Hammer, Madonna, had a meeting with the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon ... (I'm) really happy to be an artist these days."Despite the tremendous global success the Korean star received after "Gangnam Style" went viral, Psy admitted that of all his songs, his all-time favourite is the Korean track "It's an Art" from, his fifth album.
