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.
“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:
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.
