PSY revising upcoming song lyrics

Singer concerned title could offend Arabs

Headline Goes Here

At 900 million views and counting, "Gangnam Style" topped Justin Bieber's "Baby" to become the most-viewed video on YouTube. But how does that translate to cold, hard cash?

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - PSY says he will change the title and lyrics of his potential "Gangnam Style" follow-up over worries it could offend Arabs.

The announced title for the song can be written as "Assarabia" or "Assaravia" in English. It's slang used by South Koreans to express thrills. It suggests no ethnicity or body part, but worries have risen that Arabs might misinterpret the title and find it derogatory.

PSY said Monday on a South Korean social media website that he has decided to change the title. Some lyrics also will change.

After several Korean albums, PSY has promised future work in English but it isn't clear when. The "Gangnam Style" video with its catchy tune and much-imitated horse-riding dance has a record 1.44 billion views on YouTube since July.
