K-pop phenomenon BTS may have announced an indefinite hiatus after the release of their 9th album Proof but the group’s fans, also known as ARMYs, won’t be left without new music. Each member of the seven-piece group made it clear that they’re venturing into solo projects. The most recent one to confirm a release is J-Hope (Jung Ho-Seok).
J-Hope first solo single title and theme
According to the official WeVerse announcement about the release, J-Hope’s first solo single is titled Jack In The Box. The single aims to deliver J-Hope’s aspirations to “break the mould” and show off a “diverse” sound that will reflect his creative identity as a solo artist.
Jack In The Box single contents
This release is quite unique since it is technically digital but will have physical add-ons. Purchasers will receive a cardholder (one random out of two designs), photocard A, photocard B (one random out of two designs), and a QR card. The QR card will lead to WeVerse Music, a streaming app where the digital single purchased is stored.
J-Hope’s Jack In The Box pre-order and release date
The lead track for the single will be unveiled on 1 July and the entire single will be officially released on 15 July. This is perfectly timed considering that J-Hope is also set to appear as a headliner at Lollapalooza at the end of July.
The single can be pre-ordered on WeVerse’s Shop Global starting 27 June.
