GOT7 made their debut in 2014 under JYP Entertainment but left the company in January following their contracts expiring.
Since then, most of the members had already signed contracts with new agencies. Youngjae signed with Sublime Artist Agency, Yugyeom joined AOMG, BamBam signed ABYSS COMPANY, Jinyoung joined with BH Entertainment, and Mark joined American talent agency CAA.
Unlike the other members, Jay B seemed more cautious about choosing his new label. However, since the teasers were first posted, many fans predicted that it would be Jay B. They also thought he would be the perfect fit for the label!
It will be exciting to see what the future holds for Jay B now that he has become part of the H1GHR MUSIC family!
