NEW ALBUM DROP: Jay Park delivers hard-hitting hip-hop on "The Road Less Traveled" with U.S. and International Artists


They knew it was coming, but fans will still say they weren't ready. Music icon Jay Park dropped his latest LP - "The Road Less Traveled," on June 7th, complete with features from artists and producers from around the world. The 17-track album is hip-hop focused, heavy on the rap lyrics with strong beats, like his 2015 project "Worldwide," but mostly in English with international collaboration.

Features include plenty of collaborations from rappers in his hometown of Seattle, Washington, as well as artists in South Korea and other parts of Asia. His crew from both of his labels (H1GHR MUSIC and AOMG) are also well represented on this project, as well as artists from the label he's signed to - Roc Nation - and beyond.

Standouts on the album include the melodic tracks "For Ourselves," featuring Chloe DeVita and produced by H1GHR MUSIC's Mokyo, as well as "Undefeated," featuring The Flavr Blue, and produced by AOMG's GRAY. Also a favorite - "Legacy," featuring Gifted Gab and Shelby; also produced by GRAY. Park shared this socially conscious track on his YouTube channel back in December.

Jay Park has thus far released three visuals for the LP -  "Ben Baller," "GRAYGROUND Cypher," and "Feng Shui" (title track produced by Cha Cha Malone).

For fans looking for his next R&B project, like his 2016 "Everything You Wanted" crooner, Park has previously said that it's on the way after this current album. We could see it later this year, before he hits the road for his SEXY 4EVA WORLD TOUR.  You can find more visuals and information about "The Road Less Traveled" LP on its website... http://jaypark-trlt.kr/.
