New Music On The Way: AOMG - Jay Park, Simon Dominic, Gray and Loco


by Nefertiti Jenkins 
A surprise announcement from hip-hop label AOMG.  On Saturday, April 14, the label (based in Korea) shared a post on Instagram with a silhouette image of four guys in a dark place that read "Here we got Jay Park, Simon Dominic, Gray and Loco shooting a music video. Please stay tuned for collaboration work from our artists."


There were two pictures. One upright, and the other upside down.  To add to the AOMG announcement, rapper Loco posted on Instagram, an upside down picture of himself from a set with a caption that says Tuesday, May 1st. Producer/Singer/Rapper Gray has also posted a picture from a set on his Instagram that also reads Tuesday, May 1st.


Based on a tweet from the fanbase Jay Park Network on Twitter,  the collaboration could be called "Turn It Over/Upside Down."

Many fans excited about the news are calling the upcoming release a comeback for the OGs of AOMG. The label was founded by Jay Park in 2013. The name comes from Jay Park's b-boy crew that he grew up with in Seattle, WA (AOM- Art of Movement). Currently Simon Dominic and Jay Park are the CEOs of AOMG.  Their early artists and producers included Gray and Loco.

The four work well together and many fans already know that Jay Park, Simon D, Gray and Loco are "Success Crazed."
