is making use of the hype around "Gangnam Style". The DJ has acquired the approval of South Korean pop star to remix the extremely popular song for his debut album, due April next year.

"I remixed him two weeks ago and it's getting released next week," Afrojack told Billboard at the backstage of KISS FM's Jingle Ball concert in Los Angeles on Monday, December 3. PSY was the one who contacted Afrojack for the remix, saying "You're going to be the only one to remix 'Gangnam Style'."

Afrojack himself is a fan of the song. "It's genius!" he said, adding it's his personal favorite of the year. However, it was not like he did not fear the song. "It's a really really really big song! But three months ago I remixed 's 'Bad' and that worked out so I felt like 'OK. Might as well have 'Gangnam Style'," he said.

Described as "way clubbier", the eight-minute remix will appear on Afrojack's debut album which is nearly done. "It's going to get released the first week of April. I'm really excited about that. It's a big part of my heart right now," he revealed.

Among other collaborations in the album is a -assisted song called "As Your Friend". It will be released as a single in February, just two months before the double-disc album hits the stores.
