Korean American rapper pH-1, born Park Junwon (Harry Park), released a new single and music video titled “Mr. Bad” featuring Woo Wonjae on Tuesday.
The track will be on pH-1’s forthcoming album, his first in three years. According to a press release from label H1ghr Music, “Mr. Bad” is a turn for nice guy Harry Park, who “finally tackles his demons and temptations-he’s confronted throughout his career — whether it be parties, alcohol, or just friends, pH-1 was inspired by his experience of how being bad can feel good.”
Discovered by Jay Park in 2016, pH-1 made his debut in 2017 with the EP “The Island Kid” and became a founding member of H1ghr Music. Since then, he released the album “Halo” in 2019 and became a reliable collaborator in the industry, working with artists such as Jay Park, Chungha, TXT, Mamamoo’s Wheein, G.Soul and rapper Big Naughty to name a few.
In May, pH-1 was selected alongside artists Mndsgn and Audrey Nuna to perform for NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series for AAPI Heritage Month.
