BTS’ J-Hope + Crush Release ‘Rush Hour’: Look + Listen

On Thursday (9.22,) K-Pop sensation Crush released his 1990s vibe-filled single “Rush Hour” alongside J-Hope

Performing in both Korean and English, Crush (born Shin Hyo-seob) sings “So let me hear y’all scream hibihibi hop, just like that/Again clap clap clap and then hit that.” “Gather one and all like traffic jam/Get up, get up.”

Born Jung Ho-seok, J-Hope joins in with a fun verse about the “red carpet feel” of snapping pics with his friends as both stars hit exhibit perfect dance moves, as they’re surrounded by a makeshift city and dancers in the music video.

After serving in the Korean military for two years, “Rush Hour” is a taste of the new Crush, a song that J-Hope teased earlier this week by writing “Get ready to feel the Rush hour!!”

Ahead of its drop, the BTS member spoke to Rolling Stone  about his recently released album, Jack in the Box and how he feels about branching out on his own:

“While being part of BTS for 10 years, I’ve experienced a lot. From that standpoint, of course there are stories I want to tell, and I realized that it could be tough to tell some of these stories through music with the existing image and vibe of J-Hope.” “I felt the need to show some of my darker aspects … and I think I really wanted to do something like this” adding “I wanted people to realize that J-Hope isn’t limited to bright things. He can do these concepts and has a wide spectrum. I wanted to call attention to this ability by challenging myself. I didn’t think much of the future.”
