The singer, real name Jae Park, released his first official single as a solo artist, ‘Car Crash’, earlier this year in April. The single follows a series of unreleased and unofficial solo projects the singer has dropped since 2020, and is his first music since departing from Day6 and long-time label JYP Entertainment earlier this year.
eaJ previously released ‘Stab’, a collaboration with South Korean rapper BIG Naughty, in November 2021. He has also released singles featuring Seori, keshi, MAX and more.
The singer has since opened up about his unhappiness with the K-pop industry, explaining: “I think I was very angry with the system itself, and to be honest, I think I carried that anger further than I needed to. I realised I was hurting friends because of my experience within the industry, and I don’t think that’s fair.”
He also pointed out the lack of creative control as one of his major gripes with the system: “It kind of felt like sometimes the company’s visions were not aligned with [Day6’s]. It was frustrating to voice an idea and not have that be listened to.”
