Korean singer Park Jae-beom will be releasing his solo debut single album next week, according to Warner Music Korea on Thursday.

Warner announced that Park's solo album featuring the English, Korean and remix versions of song "Count on Me" will go on sale on July 13.

Famed songwriter Park Keun-tae rearranged American singer B.o.B's hit song "Nothing' On You" to create "Count on Me," adding in new melodies to the original version.

Park Jae-beom is not a stranger to the song -- he had posted a cover of "Nothin' On You" on his video site YouTube channel in March which gained so much popularity that B.o.B recorded a new version of the song featuring Park instead of originally featured singer Bruno Mars.

Park, 23, is a Korean-American singer who debuted as the leader of popular K-pop band 2PM but he left the group and the country last September when controversy fired up over remarks he had written on his MySpace account while a trainee at agency JYP Entertainment (JYPE).

Park had been staying in the U.S. since, dancing with his b-boy crew Art of Movement and signing with U.S. online media company Digital Media Wire (DMW) to manage his career in the entertainment business.

He returned to Korea on June 18 to begin filming for the b-boy pic "Hype Nation."
