“I filled the whole album with just my voice. So I made this album so I could prove myself, you know?
I wanted to show people that this is the music I make.
This is the vibe that I have. I wanted to let a lot of other artists hear my music; that I want artists to know that ‘Oh, J-Hope makes this kind of music‘”.
“I’m looking forward to a collaboration, so maybe I can do a really cool and awesome collaboration with other artists. Nothing is set yet, but that’s just my bold ambition.
I’m open to future projects like this.
If I do an upcoming collaboration, I’ll probably showcase my ultimate weapon, which is dancing“.
Fans are waiting for J-Hope to reveal who are the artists he wants to collaborate with, his future plans and his goals regarding his solo and group career.
