BTS’s dancer and rapper J-Hope officially unveiled his first solo single titled “More” on Friday, July 1. 

The track was uploaded at exactly 1 p.m. on the Weverse Album platform as a digital format. It was the first solo track from members of the KPop supergroup since they announced their hiatus and decision to spend time apart to focus on solo projects last month. 

“More” will be part of J-Hope’s soon-to-be-released solo album called “Jack in the Box,” scheduled for release on July 15. 

In 2018, the singer-rapper whose full name is Jung Ho-seok dropped his first yet unofficial solo mixtape called Hope World. It landed on the No. 38 spot on the Billboard 200 chart in the US. He also released a collaborative single called “Chicken Noodle Soup” with American entertainer Becky G back in 2019. 

BTS’ agency Big Hit Music described “Jack in the Box” as the representation of J-Hope’s goals to expand his reach. The agency also mentioned in a statement that “More” sounds like an old-school hip-hop song mixed with impressive guitar sounds and strong drum beats. 

On the other hand, J-Hope shared that he intentionally added “more” intense, dark, and edgy beats in the song. 

The official music video for “More” was also dropped on YouTube together with the song’s release.
