Discography

koogle.tv

Over the course of ten years, he’s released many albums, dozens of digital singles, and collaborations. Since becoming a solo artist, he has complete creative control over his music. He writes and composes his own songs, produces his albums, chooses the people he wants to work with, and participates in the mastering and mixing of his songs, something almost unheard of for a singer in the Korean music industry. More than just making hit songs, Park says he wants people to hear his style of music, to make them listen to “Jay Park-sounding” music. His style of music is generally contemporary R&B and hip-hop, but he also incorporates pop, dance, soul, electronic, and acoustic into his songs. Here is the list of his albums (find the individual song names here):

He created his own YouTube channel on March 15, 2010, titled jayparkaom, now JAY PARK, with the first upload being his own version of “Nothin’ on You” which went viral and reached over 2,000,000 views in less than 24 hours. He helped contribute to much of the song’s success in Korea with more than 5 million copies sold thanks to his YouTube cover. With the success of his popularity, on September 5, 2010, he got invited to the 3rd International Secret Agents Los Angeles concert held in Cerritos, California, together with well-known YouTube celebrities such as Ryan Higa, KevJumba, AJ Rafael, Alyssa Bernal, Far East Movement, and America’s Best Dance Crew Season 5 champions, Poreotix.

Also, in July 2012, he started a web series through his YouTube channel titled Jay Park TV which is filmed and edited by his friend and fellow Art of Movement member Hep. The web series shows Park’s daily life with his friends, behind-the-scenes of concerts and filming, and the fun and games that he gets up to.
