Thanks to BTS‘s Jungkook, some music lovers are hearing the name “Justin Park” for the first time.
Today, Jungkook used his massive star power to promote Justin Park on his personal Instagram account. Jungkook is new to the platform, but he already has a jaw-dropping 24.7 million followers.
In an Instagram story, Jungkook shared Justin Park’s song “On The Low,” and well, let’s just say it blew up!
Who is Justin Park? This 24-year-old Korean-American singer is a 97 liner like Jungkook, who hails from sunny Los Angeles. His agency, 5A LABEL, describes him as, “the future of R&B.”
Prior to debuting, Justin Park wrote songs for other K-Pop artists, including B.A.P, and posted song covers on YouTube. His first cover, DRAKE‘s “Fake Love,” was posted in 2017.
After five years of working on his first album, PLACES LIKE HOME, Justin Park officially debuted in 2018. That same year, he toured North America with his friend, singer Amber Liu.
Justin Park’s latest single, “YOU DON’T KNOW,” is a laidback love song. It was released in July, just a month after his cover of BTS’s song “Butter.”
Thanks to Jungkook’s help, Justin Park is getting the exposure he deserves and earning new fans. He personally thanked Jungkook for posting his song.
Guys, I don’t know what’s going on, but I’m just so happy and Jungkook, thank you. Thank you so much. BTS, thank you, you guys are doing amazing things for our people.
