Originally hailing from Seattle, Jay’s musical roots grew out of his passion for dance. As a competitive b-boy, Jay developed a genuine enthusiasm for hip-hop music and culture. Jay has always held true to both his culturally American roots, while embracing his ethnically Korean roots. Due to his nuanced, multi-cultural understanding and open-mindedness, Jay has garnered respect domestically in Korea and beyond as a global music icon.
In August 2017, Jay Park announced a partnership with JAY-Z’s Roc Nation, garnering worldwide excitement surrounding his foray into the US market as the first Asian artist signed to the label. In 2018, Jay Park dropped his debut US music capsule, Ask Bout Me. Jay is currently readying the release of his next project, scheduled to be released this summer.
