Jay Park & Ugly Duck – ‘Ain’t No Party Like an AOMG Party’
For Park Jaebom, the below track is a mixed rap, dubstep-trap hybrid that acts as a shameless plug for his own label, AOMG. It’s not hard to see why he’s proud of his label as Ugly Duck and Jay Park go hard over a banging EDM beat. You don’t see this everyday in Korean music
Jay Park X 1 MILLION – ‘All I Wanna Do’ Feat. Hoody, Loco
Who wants to bet that Jay Park and Loco will be performing ‘All I Wanna Do‘ this Saturday? Fingers crossed. Musicians collaborating may be common, but for a versatile dancer like Jay Park, he took ‘All I Wanna Do’ to a whole new level, collaborating with popular dance choreographers 1MILLION Dance Studio. The result is a hypnotising dance that will have you grooving to the beat all day, every day
Jay Park – ‘Solo’ Feat. Hoody
Speaking of collaborations, this would not be a perfect list without ‘Solo‘. Arguably one of the sweetest songs about romance in recent memory, Jay Park laments over a girl that he wishes is single. Nek minnut, the girl isn’t single but said she was anyway. I guess Jay Park’s charm would do that to you.
Jay Park – ‘Drive’ Feat. GRAY
“Let’s go for a drive,” Jay Park sings. We would go for a drive with you any day. To Darling Harbour maybe, or the Blue Mountains? In all seriousness, Gray sing-raps his way through the song, leaving Jay Park to sing and … Cough cough, dab.
DPR LIVE – ‘Right Here Right Now’ Feat Loco, Jay Park
It’s a crime that DPR LIVE isn’t more popular. With under a million views on YouTube, ‘Right Here Right Now‘ is a track that you don’t wanna sleep on.
