Background[edit]

On April 26, 2012, Park stated on Twitter that he will release a mixtape containing songs he will perform for the 2012 Verizon APAHM Tour. He also shared previews of "BODY2BODY",[4] "William Hung"[5] and "Hopeless Love".[6] Park also warned that some of the tracks would be unsuitable for minors. The titles of the songs were not revealed until the release of the mixtape. On May 4, 2012, Park stated via a video on his YouTube channel that the title of the mixtape was Fresh A!r: Breathe !t, and that it will be released in a couple weeks.[7]

Cha Cha Malone and LODEF, who worked with Park in the past, produced the mixtape. Malone is featured on the song "Hopeless Love", produced by LODEF, while Korean-American rapper Dumbfoundead is featured on the song "You Know How We Do". Park and Dumbfoundead collaborated previously on the free song "Clouds" alongside Korean-American singer Clara Chung. The track titled "William Hung" makes reference to singer William Hung who gained fame in 2004 for his off-key audition performance of Ricky Martin's hit song "She Bangs" on American Idol. The title song of the mixtape is "BODY2BODY".[8]
