New single available now
BTS’ J-Hope has premiered “More” as the first single from his solo album Jack In The Box. “More” is available on digital music services, and the song’s official music video is available on YouTube now via.
The song is an old-school hip hop track highlighted by raw drum beats and powerful guitar sound. The K-pop superstar’s unique rhythmic flow and shouting rap delivery manifest his flame-like aspirations and pure passion to escape the box and show the world what more he can offer.
“More” shows J-Hope inside the box as suggested in the album title, Jack In The Box. The track acts as one of the key anchors conveying the core message that penetrates the whole album.
Jack In The Box will be released digitally on July 15th and via “Weverse Albums” on July 29th via BigHit Music. “Weverse Albums” allow users to download the albums, photos and more via a QR code.
The project marks the first member of BTS to release a solo project as the group embarks on “BTS’ chapter 2.” Earlier this month, the K-pop superstars announced its members would pursue solo projects while “remaining active as a group.” On June 14th, the group released a new BTS Dinner Party video to celebrate their ninth anniversary when Suga commented the band was going on “hiatus,” causing a frenzy on social media and sending Hybe’s stock plummeting by $1.7 billion overnight. The next day, Big Hit Entertainment, clarified that the statement was mistranslated into English when subtitled in the video.
BTS released Proof, on June 10th, a three disc anthology album that celebrates the nine years of BTS’ journey since their debut, and opens a new chapter upon their tenth year as artists. The project — featuring new tracks, members’ selections, demo versions, unreleased tracks and more — garnered the group’s sixth No. 1 album atop of the Billboard charts with 314,000 equivalent sales in the US driven by CD sales in multiple configurations.
