There are a lot of things that you can say about Jay Park is that he knows how to make tracks and projects that are perfect for the season they’re released in.  And, it’s July, he had to make a summer bop.

The production on this track is just so feel good.  The minimalist beat is just perfect with its prominent steel drum melody and persistent skittering snare mixed with the drum machine.  It shouldn’t be enough to make the track interesting, but what elevates it are those Jay Park vocals and harmonies that provided the backbone of the track’s underlying beat.  He fills out all of the empty spots with the right amount of sound, making some sections of backing vocals and production indistinguishable, which is amazing.

We also have to hand it to Park and pH-1 for bring a bright and energetic flow to the track.  Had they decided to make their flow more minimal, it would have brought the song down and made the minimal production stand out more.  Instead, they fill up most of their verses and the layer affect is awesome.

It looks like between G.Soul and this, AOMG/H1GHR Music is coming for the summer crown with the aid of Thurxday.  Who’s going to deny them?

We love our lives whenever pop!gasa is a part of it…

Lyrics:
Even if you cover my mouth so I can’t breathe
I’ll somehow make a sound
With a language I learned late
How can I express my feelings on this paper
I think
With the sparse ingredients that I’ve been given
I cook a top class dish
Before the word “quit” comes out of my mouth
I’d give up my life first
Each moment is precious
I respect all of you
Mix it up, beer and soju
Cheers to this life, let’s toast to it
Don’t waste a single second
If you do, you might miss your chance
Your dream is waiting for you over there
We’re still young
Let’s do this fxckin’ right
Yeah we moving on and a on and a on
Yeah we sipping dom’ after dom’ after dom’
Can’t help that time keeps ticking
So let’s try our best while we’re alive

Every morning, I open my eyes and pray
I heal my soul with good music
Win over my haters with positive vibes
Push away the negative energy

I love my life I love my life oh yeah
I love my life I love my life oh yeah
I’m working hard but what’s wrong with you?
Even if things don’t go my way, I’ma keep going
I gather my hands, pray for better days
Pray for better days

I thank the lord he put us all on a better path
Don’t front like we hard we can smile and laugh
Don’t got to act like we a super duper thug
Like we moving all these drugs man
I just want to sing and dance
I still get caught up
with the bitches and the money
and the watches and the gold
and that’s real real shit
But I kill kill kids on the beat
and shit I might steal they chick
Who as real as this
Got a habit of getting too lit off the champagne
FTM that’s the motha fxckin campaign
AOMG yeah we do the damn thang
$hway bum that’s my motha fxckin rap name
I’m just enjoin the scenery
Lookin at pictures on the gram
and I be like DAMN
Emily Ratajkoski why u gotta do me like that

You so fine
I want to make you mine

I love my life I love my life oh yeah
I love my life I love my life oh yeah
I’m working hard but what’s wrong with you?
Even if things don’t go my way, I’ma keep going
I gather my hands, pray for better days
Pray for better days

Every morning, I say hallelujah
A new day, new day
So I do pray, do pray
Who can mess up my mood?
I’m like who that, who that
Boy here’s a news flash
I got way too many people messin up my mental
Jay hyung who held his hand out to me, he’s my mentor
I left behind those I love and came to Seoul
In just three months, I’m H1GHRMUSIC

I keeping the heart that my Lord gave me
Haters won’t leave me alone now
But even them, I’ll place in my heart
This is my class

Only one goal, it’s money over fame
My rewards are located higher
This world is dangerous and dark but
I’m livin la bella vita

I love my life I love my life oh yeah
I love my life I love my life oh yeah
I’m working hard but what’s wrong with you?
Even if things don’t go my way, I’ma keep going
I gather my hands, pray for better days
Pray for better days
