Male soloist Jay Park storms the chart with his recently released single, "I Like 2 Party," at No. 13 this week. The track was first previewed in Korea after being selected as the ending theme song for the premiere of Will Smith’s new movie, "After Earth."

The song was produced by Jay Park and longtime friend Cha Cha Malone. The song has a powerful beat with heavy electro sounds topped off with an infectious hook, a perfect fit for the summer. In the music video, Jay Park flaunts his sculpture-like body and nimble dance moves, crooning and partying, with women in fun costumes and colorful wigs. The clip has scored nearly 700,000 clicks since its release on July 9 and also features a cameo from famous celebrity jeweler Ben Baller.

Jay Park also represents K-pop as his EP "I Like 2 Party" debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard World Album charts. He even beats our popular Japanese pop artist KyaryPamyuPamyu's album "Nanda Collection."

To start off the year, Jay Park brings some solid R&B tracks back into the K-pop scene with his upcoming new album New Breed. Part 1 was released at the end of December, along with the video for sweet and smooth track “Star.”

What I like about these songs is the mixture of talents from both Korea and the US. It’s a blending of musical and stylistic influences from both reaches of the world in a fundamental way — by way of collaborations between different artists, crews, and groups.

Recommended Tracks:

“Up & Down” — Another of Jay’s collabs with rapper Dok2 and independent Seattle-based producer Cha Cha (Chase) Malone, the beats of this track are sick. Cha Cha, Jay’s fellow Art of Movement member, had previously produced “Abandoned” for Jay and Dok2. The rehearsal video below shows the tight choreography by Haw from dance crew Prepix, who also did the aptly suave dance for “Star.”

“Star” – Inspired by the love story of Park Han Byul & Se7en, Jay sings of the woes of dating in the limelight. You can sense producer Jun Goon’s hand in the song, with similar nuances to his previous hits “Fading Star” by Wheesung and “I Need A Girl” by Taeyang, while staying true to Jay’s voice and style.

Here’s the tracklist for Part 1, a taste of what Jay’s got coming up in the full release:

1. Star
2. Enjoy The Show (Feat. Dok2 & The Quiett)
3. Up And Down (Feat. Dok2)
4. I Got Your Back
5. Can’t Live Without You (Guitar By Yohan)

While you look forward to the full album in early 2012, check out the rehearsal video and see if you can learn some of the tight choreographies from Jay and the Prepix crew.

Seattle R&B singer/producer Cha Cha Malone's "Breakthrough" EP


Hat tip to djblesOne for cluing me in to Cha Cha Malone, a Seattle R&B singer and producer streaming his "Breakthrough" EP at chachamalone.bandcamp.com. "Breakthrough" is cast in the mold of the current king of R&Bemo, The-Dream — shimmer-stutter synthesizers, two-step drums, octave vocal stabs — and succeeds in being well-engineered, well-written, and emotionally resonant. Dig "I Still," above. Be enveloped by the fake strings. Float away on echoes of rain sticks. Get over your ego and admit you are hopelessly in love.
