The internet is loving this decision on Roc Nation’s part.
Park is the first Asian-American to be signed onto the label; he joins big name artists like Rihanna, Dj Khaled, Lil Wayne, J.Cole, Big Sean, and Vic Mensa, among others.
Fans will remember Park from his days in the Korean boy band 2PM; his early departure from the JYP group was controversial to HOTTEST (fan club name), and loyal fans followed Park throughout his career as a solo artist.
