    Released: July 13, 2010

Count On Me (Korean: 믿어줄래) is the first extended play by Korean-American singer, Jay Park. The album was released in digital and physical format by July 13, 2010. The EP is a rendition of B.o.B's hit song "Nothin' on You", which Park made a cover of on YouTube.

Background[edit]

Back in March 2010, Park made a cover of the original song by B.o.B in his bathroom and released it on his old YouTube account.[1] It was the first apparition by Park since the MySpace controversy and his contract termination with JYPE. The video went viral and reached over 2,000,000 views in less than 24 hours. In Korea, the original song by B.o.B and Bruno Mars topped the Cyworld background music chart in a matter of hours upon the video's release, beating Girls' Generation's song "Run Devil Run" that was released the following day.[2]

Park released a duet single of "Nothin' on You" with B.o.B, where he replaces Bruno Mars' vocals. Warner Music Korea explained that Park's featuring was made possible by music distribution company, Warner Music America's Asian counterpart, SEA, as well as his YouTube cover contributing to much of the song's success in Korea with more than 5 million hits.[3]

Park then released his own version of the song under Vitamin Entertainment, a subsidiary of Warner Music Korea, with the approval of the original writer.[4] Renowned composer Park Geun Tae, who was a part of the production, revealed that the song has a newly added melody[5] and style to fit Park's characteristics.[6][7] The English and Korean lyrics were written by Park himself.[6] The full EP was released on July 13, 2010.

Music video[edit]

Park released a short music video of the song on his old YouTube channel on July 13, 2010.[8] Warner Music Korea also released the short music video on YouTube on their channel on March 30, 2011.[9]
