Korean rapper Psy has revealed he has finished a new song — but he's still working on the dance moves to go with it.

“I think I got it!!! #NewSingle,” Psy's official Twitter account posted on Feb. 6. “Now gotta look for da #NewMove!!!”

The pop star will release a new album, and hopefully hit song, in April.

Psy became an overnight success around the world with "Gangnam Style" and its accompanying dance moves, and made history when his hit song "Gangnam Style" became the most viewed YouTube music video of all time.

Its overwhelming popularity was largely due to the trademark "horse" dance that accompanies the song, which mocks the fashion-conscious people in the Gangnam district of South Korea's capital, Seoul.

Since then he has been in high demand, with reports he flew to Malaysia from Brazil with his team of dancers last week, for a reported fee of $630,000.

Psy has told fans he's determined to repeat the success.

While not giving too much away, the star has said his new album will include a mix of English and Korean songs, and his new dance move will have something to do with sports, Allkpop reported.

Psy also dismissed rumors he would be collaborating with other artists, saying: “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.”

Earlier this week Psy performed at the celebrations following the inauguration of Park Geun-hye, South Korea's first female president, according to the Hollyword Reporter.
