"Gangnam Style" has made the viral rounds and propelled South Korean Pop star a literal worldwide sensation.

The wacky Korean music video that has gained 1 billion views and the video which came out in mid July, has put Psy and his quirky dance moves on the map as an international celebrity. He's done everything from a spot at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards as a presenter and on the Ellen Degenerous show teaching his dance moves to Brittany Spears.

Now Psy fans can rejoice because the song is now getting a remix. USA Today reported that "The Gangnam Style Remix Style EP" is available on the web, Tuesday on School Boy/Republic Records. It has four tracks which includes a Diplo remix which features Tyga and 2 Chains, two instrumentals and an Afrojack remix.

MTV reported that Republic said that they remixed the popular song to take the song "straight to the dance floor with propulsive production and uncontainable club energy. "

Psy told MTV that he doesn't have plans for further collabs. "I don't think I'll be doing any collaborations until my new track is done, and it's not done yet, but I'm thinking of doing it by myself, so I can prove I can do it one more time," he said. "And I'm working hard on it, because I've got to be good with the track and the video, and I've got to be able to perform it on the stage."

In Korean, Gangnam means "south of the river," and refers to it's location in Seoul near the Han River. The area is an expensive, highly coveted area to live in known for high-end dining and luxurious designer shopping.

Psy's video which is actually making fun of the glitz and superficial glamour of the neighborhood, is also known as an area with many famous plastic surgeons.

In December the singer apologized after it was discovered that he had concerts in the past with anti-American lyrics. He apologized before a holiday performance scheduled that would be attended by Barack Obama and his family,Reuters reported.

Reuters reported that in one performance over eight years ago Psy commented on the deaths of two Korean girls who were killed by a U.S. tank in Korea. He also commented on the U.S. invasion on Iraq in another concert. CNN reported that the lyrics, "included lyrics calling for the death of American troops serving in Iraq, not long after news of the brutal slaying of a South Korean hostage by Iraqi insurgents -- an incident which sparked anti-American sentiment in South Korea."

Psy said that the song "was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two Korean schoolgirls that was part of the overall anti-war sentiment shared by others around the world at that time," reported CNN.
