After the bittersweet separation of GOT7 from their long-term label, JYP Entertainment, Ahgases have been over the moon watching the new beginnings of 6 of their 7 favorites forged; and now, are overjoyed to see their beloved GOT7 leader, Jay B joining 2020’s Label of the Year, H1GHR MUSIC!

There had been countless rumors previously that Jay B was going to join H1GHR MUSIC, but the label had dismissed them by saying, “Nothing has been decided in relation to recruiting GOT7’s JB.” While at the same time, Jay B had also denied the rumors from his end. This had led to many fans feeling disappointed as they had been excited to see R&B enthusiast Jay B’s new path with one of the hottest labels in the K-R&B/K-Hiphop field.

So, with anticipation and mystery heightened to the max about Jay B’s future endeavors, news of him finally signing with Jay Park’s label H1GHR MUSIC which houses artists like pH-1, Sik-K, Producer duo GroovyRoom, BIG Naughty, etc., has sent the fans reeling!

“I felt grateful that CEO Park Jae-bum first approached me and believed in me. I decided to join H1GHR MUSIC with the goal of becoming an artist who can show more diverse aspects in the future by making use of my previous musical career as an idol.” – says Jay B on joining H1GHR MUSIC

An added serendipitous news is that Jay B will also be releasing a new single on 14 May 2021 (6 PM KST) as part of H1GHR MUSIC – a new journey he is anxious-yet-very-excited to undertake!

He expresses the same through his Instagram post which reads, “Hello, this is JAY B. From today, I will be with H1GHR MUSIC. I’m so happy to be able to show you my music with H1GHR MUSIC, but on the other hand, I’m also worried. I’ll do my best to show you better performances in the future. Thank you to the fans who have been waiting for me and thank you to those who are looking forward to me.”

The label’s CEO, Jay Park who had earlier declared that he was “the only Jae-beom” in H1GHR MUSIC in response to the earlier rumors, also posted an amusing video of himself and Jay B singing “All I Wanna Do” by Jay Park and an excerpt from Jay B’s new single, “Switch It Up” produced by Cha Cha Malone! Jay B also revealed in a live with Jay Park (with a surprise appearance of Yugyeom) that the new single will feature a special guest as well.

This piece of great news might have been all you needed to feel fulfilled, thinking that “Now even the last remaining member is settled”, but let me remind you that, this is just the beginning! Marking the start of his new journey with H1GHR MUSIC, Jay B is all set to explore the vast musical horizons and we, Ahgases should definitely stay tuned to see GOT7’s charismatic leader bring out his newer sides!
