There’s many issues still surrounding this new trio, JYJ (Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun, Xiah Junsu) but for now they have released their debut album titled ‘The Beginning‘.
The album embarks the trio’s journey after filing a lawsuit to their former label, SM Entertainment for slavery and unfair contract whilst under the group DBSK.
For the album production, the boys teamed up with Kanye West and Rodney Jerkins (Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, Se7en) with the title track end up being Ayyy Girl featuring Kanye West.
The Beginning compiles 8 tracks which I personally think have strong influences from the American producers they worked with, making it hard to label the album in the ‘kpop’ category. However, I do throughly enjoy the R&B beats!
