Now that Psy’s future plans are beginning to take shape, Forbes magazine has asked the question that’s on everyone’s mind- ‘Will Psy find continued success after Gangnam Style?’

Forbes magazine’s Dorothy Pomerantz posted an article examining Psy in the Business section of the magazine on September 25 (local time).

Titled, ‘Is Psy the Next Justin Bieber or The Next Rebecca Black?’, the article highlights all the astonishing success of Psy and Gangnam Style including becoming the most “liked” video ever on YouTube and the most viewed musician on YouTube this month with some 15 million hits per day.

But the article asks the realistic question of whether Psy will turn out to be a successful artist like Justin Bieber or a one-hit wonder like Rebecca Black. Dorothy Pomerantz points out, fair enough, that unlike Rebecca Black who became a viral hit for her song and video being terrible, Psy is finding success for his “obvious talent and appeal”.

However, she insists that for Psy to be a long-lasting star, he will, “…have to transcend the K-pop movement and churn out some really great pop songs in English.”

She added she doesn’t expect Psy to make it on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list in 2013 and points out Psy seeming, “a little ill at ease” during his recent press interviews in America but adds, “if he can come up with some more cool dance moves and another great video, he might just make it.”
