South Korean pop singer/songwriter/actor Xia Junsu recently sat for an exclusive GRAMMY.com interview and discussed his biggest career moments, his special relationship with music and his recently released album, Incredible.

“Ever since I was a kid, music has always been in my life,” said Junsu. “It is the only thing I know and I can do. Even before I became a singer, listening to music and singing [were a] major part of my life.”

Junsu made his career debut in 2003 as a member of South Korean boy band TVXQ, with whom he released four albums, including the 2004 debut Tri-Angle and 2005′s follow-up Rising Sun.

In 2010 Junsu formed JYJ with TVXQ members Kim Jaejoong and Park Yoochun. The trio released their debut English album, The Beginning, in 2010, followed by their first Korean full-length album, In Heaven, in 2011.

In 2012 Junsu released his first solo album, Tarantallegra, under the moniker Xia. The 12-song collection features elements of dance, pop and R&B and peaked at No. 10 on Billboard‘s World Albums chart. The title track, which features vocals from New York rapper/producer Flowsik of Aziatix, has garnered more than 6 million YouTube views to date. In 2012 Junsu released the English single “Uncommitted,” which was written and produced by Bruce “Automatic” Vanderveer (Christina Aguilera, Leona Lewis) and peaked at No. 1 on South Korea’s Hanteo music chart. Aside from music, Junsu has appeared in several Korean musicals, including “Mozart!” (2010) and “Tears Of Heaven” (2011).

Released July 15, Incredible features 11 songs, including the dance-ready title track featuring Quincy Brown, the stepson of Sean “Diddy” Combs.
