J-hope is ready to embark on a fresh start as a solo artist, and in his much-awaited solo album “Jack in the Box,” J-Hope combines his signature hip-hop and rap with rock cues. The song, sung mainly in Korean, expresses J-Hope’s desire to challenge himself musically to meet his passion.

He emphasizes multiple times during the song “MORE” how important his craft and artistry are to him, expressing his “aspiration to break the mold and grow further.” j-hope also added that he wants to highlight a raw dark side of an album with the lead title track “MORE”.

As of writing, the “MORE” official music video has garnered 32 million views, and BANGTANTV uploaded a visual teaser of “Hope in the Box” on July 5.

ARMYs are thrilled to hear j-hope’s own piece for the first time. “Jack in the Box” is set for release on July 15, 2022, at PM (KST).

J-hope’s previous hit songs Blueside, Chicken Noodle Soup feat Becky-G, Daydream, Airplane, among others, are hit makers, for sure. But we are sure Jack In The Box will be a pop like Mic Drop.  /TV
