The K-pop star became a crossover sensation after "Gangnam Style" was released four months ago. He has since performed the dance hit with Britney Spears, Madonna and most recently MC Hammer at the 2012 American Music Awards.
In September, PSY became labelmates with Bieber when he signed to Scooter Braun's Schoolboy Records.
