How do you follow the most-watched YouTube video of all time?

Well, Psy began his campaign to try this morning with “Gentleman,” his first single since “Gangnam Style,” which has 1.5 billion YouTube views. It’s hard to say whether “Gentleman” will succeed at this point -- Psy only released the audio track and, let’s face it, what sold “Gangnam Style” was the video and the galloping choreography.
