It can certainly be said that Jay Park’s music career has been a whirlwind. From the initial success of having debuted as a K-pop idol in JYP’s group 2pm which eventually led to the scandal that potentially could have ended his dream of being a artist in Korea.
However, he remained undisputed and learnt the hard lessons from the mistakes that had been made. And as a result this had allowed him to be able to build an empire for himself, in the form of AOMG entertainment.
Now in 2016, he’s a force to be reckoned with. Jay Park had just recently released his latest album ‘Everything You Wanted’ with a total of nineteen songs on the bilingual tracklist. He reaped in the rewards upon the release, with his fourth studio album being no.1 in a number of countries and was even no.7 in the UK album charts!
On his interview with I-D which you can read here, the highly successful artist and CEO of his own company comes across as being down to earth which dispels the hard hip-hop image he tends to portray in his music videos and on ‘Show Me The Money’ when he was a judge.
Jay Park seems to be a chilled individual and isn’t bothered about fame, he’s just an person who simply enjoys making good music that helps his growth as an artist and also to nurture the talent of those under his label. But more importantly, he’s content with being able to give the artists in his company the freedom to make the music that they’re passionate about – which is often a rarity to see in the K-pop industry.
