Psy to work with Brian May

Dance hitmaker Psy is working on his next track with Queen’s guitarist Brian May.

The Gangnam Style, YouTube sensation, credits Queen as the reason he decided to pursue a career in music, and says if it wasn’t for Queen’s gig at Wembley, he “wouldn’t be a pop star”.

And now it seems the 35-year-old Korean native’s dream is coming true, with Brian May working with him on his next track.

Brian May told The Sun newspaper: ''It turns out he's [Psy] a massive Queen fan and he says he's in the [music] business because of us, which is always nice to hear.''

Brian added: ''I was quite nervous to meet him. The guy's had 1.6 billion views on YouTube. It turns out that he was pretty nervous too. So we just sat there and looked at each other for a while.

''Then we had a good conversation and it was nice. It was a friendly lunch.''

Speaking about Queen’s legendary frontman, the late Freddie Mercury Psy said: ''When I was growing up I would watch Freddie Mercury with all those fans in the palm of his hand. He is the best.''
