Korean singer PSY returned with his ninth album “Ssada9” (literal title) along with the music video for the title track featuring K-pop band BTS singer Suga.
The album features numerous artists including Sung Si Kyung, Heize, Jessi, MAMAMOO‘s Hwasa, Crush, and Tablo.
“That That” is produced and written by Suga along with PSY. Suga also features in the upbeat music video in which the two sing, “That that I like that babe. Do what you want. Say what you wanna.”
A few days ago, the ‘Gangnam Style’ singer dropped several teasers for the upcoming single produced by BTS member Suga.

The accompanying teaser for the ‘That That’ music video opened with Psy in a Wild West-esque town while wearing a cowboy outfit. He runs towards the camera as a sentimental guitar instrumental plays in the background, and falls down as the screen fades to black.
In a separate teaser Psy and Suga also speak about meeting each other for the first time and how they feel like they’ve become good friends. “When meeting younger artists, I don’t want to be someone who’s hard to approach,” Psy said. “[Suga] wasn’t just my junior in the business, but also he truly feels like a friend. It was hard to feel any age gap.”
Suga noted that he had initially been “nervous” about working with Psy because “he’s many years my senior and someone so who’s so well-respected in the business”. However, the BTS member added that it actually “felt like working with a childhood friend, so it made the songwriting process that much more fun”. “We became besties in a way,” he added.
‘That That’ is the latest track from ‘Psy 9th’ to have been revealed so far, following ‘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’.
