Jay Park Signs With Jay Z’s Label, Roc Nation

On July 21, Roc Nation, Jay Z’s label, officially announced that they have signed on Korean-American singer/rapper Jay Park to their label.

The tweet features a photo of Park and reads, “We are excited to announce @Jaybumaom has officially signed with #RocNation! Welcome to the #RocFam!!!”

Park also took to Instagram to upload a post of his own.

“It’s Official @RocNation This is a win for the Town This is a win for Korea This is a win for Asian Americans This is a win for the overlooked and underappreciated This is a win for genuine ppl who look out for their ppls This is a win for hard work and dedication This is a win for honesty and authenticity Thank you for the acknowledgement and recognition🙏🙏 Just gettin’ started 10년차가수인데 이제부터시작이네 🙌 🙌🙌#RocFam #RocNation”

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.
