Global sensation Jay Park has dramatically adapted his sound to resemble newfound prospects after being signed to Roc Nation in 2017. Being the first Asian-American artist to be signed to Jay-Z’s iconic label, the Seattle-born K-Pop turned global superstar wants to show the world what he’s capable of, mandating new sonic tendencies that see him stepping into more hip-hop territories that move away from his signature R&B sound. After releasing a variety of hits on his first EP with Roc Nation, Ask About Me, the renowned artist has returned with a brand new single alongside super producer Hit-Boy, entitled “K-TOWN.”
The new track, which runs a little over two-minutes, maintains Jay’s usual machine gun flow, intersected with various vocal interludes that showcase the artist’s range of talent – he can sing out choruses with no auto-tune needed and rap out hard verses with immense flow. Hit-Boy lends his hand to an equally hard-hitting beat, filled with distorted samples and effects alongside battering 808 basses and snares. As is evidenced by the song’s name, the video was filmed in Los Angeles’ Koreatown.
