While talking to the Rolling Stone magazine a day before his Lollapalooza performance, BTS‘s J-Hope opened up about how he plans to pan out the path of his solo endeavors moving forward.
His debut album Jack In The Box is a 10-track record that has no features on it. The aim here, according to J-Hope, was to amplify his individuality and build a solid base for his musical style. But that doesn’t mean he is not open to collaboration ideas in the future.
According to J-Hope, Jack In The Box was an important step to lay the groundwork for him to grow as a solo musician.
I learned that maybe I was a little bit arrogant, maybe I was a little lacking, and I was a little inexperienced. But I learned so much through this album. In that sense, I think this album is very, very meaningful to me.
Now that he has established his sound, J-Hope is ready to think about collaborating with different artists. Though there is no set plan in motion yet, he wants to work on a project that will allow him to feature his biggest strength, dance.
Nothing’s set yet, but it’s just my bold ambition. I’m open to any future plans like this. If I do a next collaboration, it’ll probably showcase my ultimate weapon, which is dancing.
So far, J-Hope has collaborated only once as a soloist. It was for the song “Chicken Noodle Soup” with Becky G. The duo finally performed it together live at Lollapalooza, three years after the song’s release.
