Jay Park talked about his new digital single “Ganadara,” which features IU.

It is the first time that the two musicians have teamed up, with the single being released on Friday.

“She said, ‘Let’s work together someday when there’s an opportunity,’ and I immediately started doing the song and asked her (to collaborate),” he said. He said she was the ultimate professional and he loved her vocal tone, describing the result as “perfect”.

In the second verse, they were singing together and ad-libbing when she burst out laughing during her role, he said, and in the end he loved it so much the laughter became part of the song.

“When you think of the two of us, it can be hard to imagine what a vibe the combination would be,” he admitted, adding that it’s a sweet song that makes the most of their vocals.

Separately, IU postponed the release of their documentary for a week. It was to be unveiled on March 16.
