J-Hope solo album speaks to the heart

Korean pop idol J-Hope/Jeon Hoseok, who is apart of the K-pop raved idol group BTS, has released his solo debut mixtape, known commonly in the ARMY fan group as the “Hixtape.” After the anticipated wait for over a year, he now drops seven well produced songs to start his solo career.

The solo album reached its way to the world on March 2. The music videos for two of the songs were released both March 2 and 6, titled “Daydream” and “Airplane,” together received a total of 49 million views.

This release wasn’t like any typical solo debut. Instead of rap or compiled music tracks and harsh verses, he spoke from the heart, working with soft melodies and heart warming lyrics.

Although he is the last of the three rappers in BTS to release a solo piece, his was most unique and has received far more attention recently due to their uprising popularity and has gotten very positive responses.

J-hope has set new standards for music and he has created an outstanding piece of work. I personally enjoy the track “P.O.P (Piece of Peace).” It’s composition is well put together and sounds nice, meant for any mood and speaks especially about the things people could experience outside hate.
