Second generation meets third generation. Psy and Suga’s “That That” lyrics in English celebrate the post-pandemic world, and it’s the collaboration we’ve been waiting for.

“That That” is the lead single from Psy’s new album, Psy 9th, which was released on April 29, 2022. The album, which is Psy’s eighth studio album and first release in five years 2017’s 4X2=8, is Py’s first album since he founded his own record label, P Nation, in 2019. Along with “That That” album features 12 songs, including collaborations with artists like Sung Si Kyung, Heize, Jessie, Hwa Sa, Crush and Tablo.

“That That” is the second song on Psy 9th and features BTS member Suga, who has also collaborated with artists like Halsey, IU and Max. Psy is best known for songs like 2002’s “Champion” and 2012’s “Gangnam Style,” which peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In an Instagram video announcing Psy 9th in April 2022, Psy reposted a speech he gave at a concert in 2013 about how he didn’t expect his next hit to come until 2022, exactly 10 years after “Gangnam Style” and 20 years after “Champion.” “I know a lot of you have high expectations for my next hit song. To be honest, I produced ‘Champion’ in 2002, and it took me exactly 10 years to produce a song that is more sensational than ‘Champion’ with the release of ‘Gangnam Style’ in 2012,” he said in the video. “I guess what I’m trying to say is, perhaps the next time you’ll meet a song like ‘Gangnam Style’ will be in 2022.”

What are Psy and Suga’s “That That” lyrics about? In a video on Psy’s Twitter in April 2022, Psy and Suga explained how their collaboration for “That That” came about. “To be honest, I haven’t gotten that close with anyone I collab with. It’s because I’m usually not the type to meet up with collaborators in person,” Suga said. He continued, “But he wanted to see me in person.” Psy added, “At the beginning, we met because he wanted to produce my music. “Then he ended up featuring on the track. Then he ended up learning the intense choreo. Then he ended up starring in the music video. Step by step, he got involved more and more deeply. Our Yoon-gi.”

Suga went on to explain that he didn’t expect to be featured on Psy’s song, let alone star in the music video. “While producing, we went back and forth a lot. I seriously didn’t expect to be dancing with Psy. Ah…I thought I was only writing the song.”

In another video on Psy’s Instagram, Psy and Suga opened up about the age difference between them when it came to working together. “When meeting younger artists, I don’t want to make them feel uncomfortable. I don’t want to be someone who’s hard to approach.I think about this quite a bit,” Psy said. Suga added, “At first, because he’s many years my senior and someone who’s so well-respected in the business, I was quite nervous.”

Both Suga and Psy agreed that they formed a friendship after working on “That That” together. “He wasn’t just my junior in the business but he also truly feels like a friend,” Psy said. “It was hard to feel any age gap. If he thinks of me as a bestie, that’s great for me. How much younger does that make me?” Suga added, “It felt like working with a childhood friend, so it made the song writing process so much more fun. We became besties in a way.”

So what are Psy and Suga’s “That That” lyrics about? In the song, Psy sings about how the “pandemic’s over,” so it’s time to get back to the “crowded streets” and the “hustle and bustle,” according to Genius’ English translation. The lyrics also have a small and subtle nod to Psy’s 2012 hit, “Gangnam Style,” inspired by the Gangnam District of Seoul. “Been aching all over for /Gotta scratch the itch for /Them crowded streets,” he sings. “Gotta love this hustle and bustle / North, south, east, west, ayy /Gangnam, Gangbuk, ayy /Everyone gather, throw your hands in the air / I say ‘yeah.'” In another part of the song, Psy and Suga sing about shaking it from “left to right, top to bottom” and how they feel good now that they’re back to “laughing, crying, living, loving.”

“On your mark, get ready (Go), set, go (Oh) /That, that I like that (Like that) /Feeling good, babe (Babe),” the lyrics read. “Shake it from left to the right, top to bottom (Sing it) /One, two, three to the four (Sing it).”
