South Korean producer Park Hye Jin has released a new single, “Y Don’t U,” featuring Clams Casino and producer duo Take A Daytrip.
On the track, Park delivers hypnotic Korean verses over a stuttering sample that meets booming, cloud rap-flavored beats. “Why do you love me? / Why do you hurt me? / Why don’t you love me?” she inquires on the refrain with her trademark deadpan delivery.
“This song had too many journeys before being released right now. It deserves to be listened to,” the musician commented on the song in a press release. “I first recorded it when I lived in London. I remember when I was a little more innocent and pure. Hye Jin is more innocent when she falls into such a love; not anymore though I guess.”
The track follows her recent collaborations with Nosaj Thing, Galcher Lustwerk and Blood Orange, on the tracks “Clouds,” “Can You,” and “Call Me (Freestyle)” respectively. Her previous full-length release was her second EP released last year, How Can I, which featured a moody title track and “Like This.”
Last year, Clams Casino released Instrumental Relics, a collection of the cloud-rap pioneer’s prominent early recordings. The release included the streaming debut of his instrumental for Lil B’s cult favorite, “I’m God.” In 2019, he also released the album Moon Trip Radio, which included the single “Rune.”
Meanwhile, Take A Daytrip most recently produced Lil Nas X’s chart-smashing single “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).”
