GOT7’s Lim Jae-bom, also known as JAY B, has officially signed with H1GHR MUSIC, the agency confirmed on Wednesday, May 11. 

“Welcome to H1GHR MUSIC, JAY B,” they wrote alongside an announcement trailer.  The agency also revealed that JAY B is set to release a digital single on May 14. 

JAY B opened up on how excited he is to start his solo career. “As I’m starting as a solo artist, I wanted to be free in the musical spectrum. So I had to spend a lot of time thinking of what kind of music I should pursue and other factors outside of the music,” he said as per Soompi. 

“I finally decided to join H1GHR MUSIC with the faith that I could accomplish my goals here, of becoming an artist who puts out various outcomes based on my previous music career as an idol,” JAY B continued. 

JAY B is the last of the GOT7 members to sign with another label after leaving their former agency, JYP Entertainment, in January 2021. Mark Tuan, who is now based in the United States, signed with Creative Artists Agency, while Jackson Wang works with his own label Team Wang. 

Jinyoung joined BH Entertainment, Youngjae is with Sublime Agency, Bambam signed with Abyss Company, and the youngest member Yugyeom is with Label AOMG.  

Despite being part of different labels, GOT7 members assured their fans that they are not disbanding and they have plans to continue working as a group. In February 2021, the septet launched their new YouTube channel with a new song, “ENCORE.”Rappler.com
