BTS’ J-Hope releases ‘More’ music video ahead of debut solo album ‘Jack in the Box’

  • BTS’ J-Hope released the music video for his new single “More” on Friday.

  • The track and its music video provide a taste of his forthcoming debut solo studio album “Jack in the Box,” which will be released on July 15 at 1 p.m. KST.

  • This makes J-Hope the first BTS member to release a solo project following the announcement of the group’s break last month.

  • The 28-year-old rapper is already set to make history by becoming the first South Korean headliner on the main stage of Lollapalooza later this month.

With the release of his single “More” on Thursday, J-Hope is the first BTS member to release a solo project following the announcement of the group’s break last month.

The music video for “More” provides a taste of J-Hope’s forthcoming debut solo studio album, “Jack in the Box.” The album will be released on July 15 at 1 p.m. KST in both physical and digital formats, and online and in-person pre-orders for the album were made available starting on June 27.  

Although J-Hope’s new project has no affiliation with fast-food chain Jack in the Box, the latter’s Twitter account joined in on the fun and tweeted that J-Hope was their “bias for a reason.”

They then posted another tweet with the Spider-Man pointing meme.  

On June 26, Big Hit Music announced the release of the upcoming album, stating:

“We would like to announce the release of ‘Jack in the Box,’ J-Hope’s solo album… J-Hope will be the first member of BTS to start this new journey and release his solo album. J-Hope’s solo album, as expressed in the title of the album ‘Jack In The Box,’ represents his aspirations to break the mold and grow further.”

The 28-year-old rapper is already set to make history by becoming the first South Korean headliner on the main stage of Lollapalooza later this month. 

Prior to J-Hope’s recent drop, fellow BTS member Jungkook shared his long-awaited collaboration “Left and Right” with singer Charlie Puth last week
