On May 1, Jay Park unveiled his YouTube documentary Chosen1.
During much of his career, Jay Park promoted primarily in Korea. Despite a rocky start as an ex-2PM member, Jay rose to prominence and became a respected R&B and hip-hop artist. He started his own labels AOMG and H1GHR Music.
Jay Park is currently preparing a U.S. crossover under Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation. As an Asian-American hailing from Seattle, he wants to make music in English as well. Hopefully it will be a successful venture!
Chosen1 features industry senior Dok2 and AOMG’s Simon Dominic, Loco, Gray, and DJ Pumkin. They had high praise for Jay Park’s supportive, hard-working nature, and also spoke about the Korean hip-hop scene as a whole.
Chosen1 is available as a YouTube Original documentary and can be watched with a premium account.
On April 25, prior to Chosen1‘s release, Jay Park held a press conference with others involved with the show’s production. He discusses aspects of the documentary in-depth. You can watch it here.
