JAY B is smitten in love in ‘B.T.W’ music video featuring Jay Park; drops solo EP SOMO FUME
The title track 'B.T.W' features JAY B smitten in love expressing his desire to be in the company of his partner. Keeping up with the theme of longing for love and beyond, JAY B expresses, "My heart for you / It might hurt me / But it's okay I care about you / Get close to me if you want me / Graze my hands gently on your skin / Coming to you slowly / Always having good times with you / Engrave you into my heart tonight."
The R&B song features H1GHR Music's CEO himself Jay Park during rap sections whereas the song is produced by ace producer Cha Cha Malone. The groovy vibe to it brings a fun flavour to it with JAY B getting into his star power element. The smooth choreograph adds a carefree vibe to it.
JAY B's 7-track album features collaborations with Jay Park, MAMAMOO's Whee In, G1nger, JUNNY, and more. Titled SOMO: FUME, SOMO stands for ‘Style Of My Own’ but it is also a play on Korean word '소모품/somopoom' which means to consume. FUME is short for perfume by which JAY B hopes that this album is absorbed into everyone just like a perfume. Known for being a wordplay genius, the title is absolutely JAY B-esque level amazing. While the 6 tracks are available on streaming platforms, the seventh track 'Paranoia' is a CD-only track.
JAY B, real name Lim Jaebeom, has been known as a hip-hop dancer, vocalist, songwriter, and producer. In the last seven years of his career in GOT7, he has produced and written several songs for the group under the name DefSoul. Apart from that, he is a part of the R&B soul crew Offshore.
