The K-Pop star reveals he wants to prove he can match the success of his breakout hit all by himself.

PSY has confessed that the follow-up to his worldwide smash 'Gangnam Style' will not be a collaboration.

The singer was rumoured to have teamed up with Justin Bieber on his next single, although he has now told MTV News that he will be going it alone on his new release.

"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," he revealed.

He added: "And I'm working hard on it, because I've got to be good with the track and the video, and I've got to be able to perform it on the stage."

PSY, who recently hinted that his performance of his track at Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve show in New York would be the final time he performs the song in the US, also went on to reveal some of the inspirations for his new material.

"I really like [Rihanna's] 'We Found Love,' and these days I've been listening to 'Scream & Shout' by and Britney Spears," he said. "And, of course, all year, I have liked what Usher has done, too."

'Gangnam Style', which hit one billion YouTube views at the end of 2012 was also revealed to be the most played track on New Year's Eve.
