Going solo and going strong seems to the BTS current way. Group members, on individual basis, have kept their fans engaged with regular updates and music bytes. And treading the same route comes BTS’ J-Hope’s solo album “Jack in the Box.” This, incidentally, is the first solo album from any band member ever since the hiatus was announced June 11. Slated for a July 15 release, “sunshine” J-Hope shared 10-track list. But what caught all eyes was the scorching clicks and J-Hope’s cryptic message: “Burnt It All.”
A Big Hit release, “Jack In The Box” features Intro, More and Pandora’s Box with Arson being the title do. While More was released last week, fans were introduced to the look of Arson over the weekend.
The snap series is enveloped in an unmistakable dark energy aura. J-Hope appears an intriguing persona, an image completely divorced from his cheerful, feel-good vibes as part of the septet. The concept pictures show a grim scene in which J-Hope is posing next to an accident-mangled vehicle which is set ablaze. Dressed in a clean white jumpsuit, he stares into the camera with ominous clouds looming in the background. Another set of pictures shows him standing alone amidst wreckage, in charred clothes.
Billboard quoted a news release that described Arson as J-Hope “encountering the world outside the box and standing at the crossroads agonizing which path he should take.”
J-Hope became the first member of the band to announce his solo album titled Jack in the Box and recently announced the full tracklist of the album.
