Jay Park Live in Singapore: A sizzling night well-spent
The Star Performing Arts Centre might be a little chilly – but screaming fans of Jay Park will beg to differ, because when the Korean-American entertainer took the stage on January 18, all he did was turn up the heat.
Kicking off at a little past 8pm, Jay wasted no time in jumping into hit songs ‘Nothin’ On You’ and ‘Girlfriend’ (where he ditched his shades) to ear-splitting cheers. When dance crew Prepix joined him on stage for ‘Abandoned’, Jay really stepped up his game with the dancing. Besides his trademark b-boying skills swiftly incorporated into the night’s various song choreography, we also spotted him with some pretty wicked popping moves during ‘I Love You’!
The 25-year-old also showed off his impish side by asking fans if they liked his leopard-print shirt. Jay: “Do you guys like my shirt? I feel like a tiger today. Roar!”
But what we really love more than that? How Jay had no qualms performing edgier, more controversial (i.e. sexier) songs from ‘New Breed‘ and his mix-tape. When he performed ‘Do What You Do’ and ‘Turn Off That Phone’, he didn’t forget to saunter all over the stage to interact with fans as well. The man also sure knows how to tantalise: providing blink-and-you-miss-it shirt lifts and innocently asking “Take what off? You perverts!” when fans egged him on, until the end of the concert when he finally performed topless during encore stage ‘Body 2 Body’. What a tease!
When Jay insisted that the first thing he did when he got to Singapore was to ask where the gym was, there was no way we could believe him. Even when he said that the next time he came back he would look like Arnold Schwarzenegger, we’re sure everyone in the house couldn’t stress enough how that wouldn’t be necessary.
But perhaps the best part of the evening was when the fan-project for ‘Carefree’ made it to great success. As prompted by fans prior to the concert, the audience unanimously raised signs that read ‘Work Hard, Play Hard’ when Jay sang the exact lyrics. The latter got so excited, he grabbed his own sign from a fan and waved it around as well, thanking the fans after for their support.
Although the concert was short, wrapping up after about an hour with Jay sheepishly explaining that he had not enough material with only two albums, he promised to come back really soon. We’re sure he’s not pulling a fast one here – he let us in that he’s been working on new music and videos during his Press Conference, and we can’t wait to see him back here!
We’d once again like to thank Agenda Events Pte Ltd for allowing us to cover the event and for bringing Jay Park Live in Singapore to fruition.
