J-Hope, the first member of BTS to have a solo project since the group’s announcement in June, topped iTunes in many regions with his new song.
His song “More,” a pre-release track of his upcoming album “Jack In The Box,” grabbed the No. 1 spot on iTunes’ Top Songs chart in 84 countries and regions, according to Big Hit Music, including in the US, Canada, Spain, France and the Philippines.
The music video for “More” also garnered 17.14 million views in the first 24 hours based on YouTube’s screen counter.
It begins with a box delivered to J-Hope. The rooms behind the doors in a hallway each represent different sides of J-Hope. Moving between the rooms, J-Hope shows off his various charms. The overall mood is powerful and dark, and the Pierrot-motif outfits and items in black and white highlight the aesthetics of the video in opposing senses and his passions.
“More” is an old-school hip hop track highlighted by raw drum beats and powerful guitar sound. J-Hope’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.
The remaining tracks of “Jack In The Box” will also be available on digital music services on July 15 and via “Weverse Albums” on July 29.
The “Weverse Albums” app allows users to download the album, photos and more via QR code.
