The trippy video open with the K-pop idol receiving a mysterious unmarked package that transports him to a strange world once opened. His apartment suddenly connects to a dystopian-looking office, which the rapper soon takes over.
Later, he changed out into an all-white outfit to perform the song’s rock-inspired chorus in what appears to be a run-down garage. “Hah, shout out / I say ‘more’ / Hah, yeah, right / ‘Cause I want some more,” he sings.
‘More’ is the first taste of J-Hope’s upcoming debut solo studio album, ‘Jack In The Box’, which is due out on July 15. According to a previously Big Hit Music press release, the record will serve as a way for the BTS member to “break the mould and grow further”.
The news came shortly after BTS announced a temporary break from group activities to focus on solo endeavours. However, Big Hit Music has since clarified the statements, noting that it would not be a “hiatus”, instead saying that the septet will “harmoniously carry out their group and individual activities”.
In a recent interview with Weverse Magazine, J-Hope opened up about the group’s state of mind while preparing for their Grammys 2022 performance in April. “The other members were on the brink of mental exhaustion at that point, to be honest,” he revealed.
Earlier this month, it was announced that J-Hope will headline Chicago’s Lollapalooza festival in July alongside Green Day, Metallica and more. The BTS member’s performance will mark the first time that a South Korean artist has headlined a major music festival in the United States.
