Born on April 25, 1987, in Edmonds, Washington, Jay Park had shown great interest in breakdancing and hip-hop music as a young boy. Growing up, he often spent his free time dancing with friends.

Two years later, he put together his first studio album, New Breed. Divided into two parts, the project contained fifteen songs, a few of which featured guest appearances from Dynamic Duo The quiet, and Bizzy. A big success, it reached the top of the South Korean music chart, with 80,000 copies sold in the first week. In the US, the album also charted at number four on the Billboard World Albums chart.
