Hello, one and all!
Your average ARMY here showing one of her works.
More than a month ago J-Hope, one of the members from a boy group called BTS, released his very own mixtape called Hope World (which was lit asf btw) which has achieved many accomplishments and broke many records.
Alongside the mixtape’s release two brand new MVs released called Daydream (released on March 1st, 2018) and Airplane (released on March 6th, 2018).
After much anticipation from fans around the world, BTS member J-Hope has finally released his own mixtape titled “Hope World.” The album marks J-Hope’s — born Jung Ho-seok — first album, and it’s the third mixtape released by a BTS member, following RM’s self-titled release in 2015 and Suga’s “Agust D” from 2016.
Despite having less than a day’s worth of sales to be considered for the charts, “Hope World” debuted at Number 63 on the Billboard 200, making J-Hope the highest-charting K-pop solo act in Billboard 200 history. Only four other solo K-pop acts have entered the charts, including BoA, Taeyang, Jonghyun, and G-Dragon.
What makes J-Hope’s achievement on the Billboard 200 even more impressive is the fact that fans had the option to download the album for free instead of purchasing it. As well as being made available for purchase on Spotify and iTunes, fans could download the entire album free of charge through Google, MediaFire, and Dropbox.
Because BTS’ popularity has grown significantly within the past few months, the mixtape received different treatment than RM and Suga’s releases, which were only made available through Soundcloud.
The seven songs of Hope World offer a look into the BTS member’s artistry and personality, with the groovy intro track, also called “Hope World,” declaring it an expression of his hope and career-propelling determination by comparing the mixtape to a novel relaying J-Hope’s life. “My name is my life/ hopeful vibe,” he opens up the melodic retro-leaning track before later comparing his World to Jules Verne’s classic sci-fi explorative 20,000 Leagues under the Sea.
The following success of this mixtape and BTS y stunned the world with their music.Recently, J-Hope’s Daydream hit 50 million views on YouTube and 3million likes. In24 hours, and the MV has reached the 12 million views milestone! The MV also gained 2 million ‘likes’ and has bumped up to #7 in trending.
Okay, Imma stop with my fangirling ^^
