BTS member J-Hope unveiled on Friday his long-awaited album, "Hope on the Street Vol. 1".

 The six-track EP is described as “a special album” consisting of six tracks spanning a “diverse array of sounds and moods that showcase j-hope’s musical prowess and depth.” 

It also features several special guests, including bandmate Jung Kook on “I Wonder,” as well as Benny Blanco and Chic’s Nile Rodgers on “Lock/Unlock,” a dance mix of “What If” with Jinbo the SuperFreak and “NEURON” featuring South Korean hip-hop vet Gaeko of Dynamic Duo and yoonmirae.

The album is accompanied by a six-part docuseries, "Hope on the Street", which debuted earlier this week on Prime Video. It depicts the rapper’s dance journey as he explores and meets street dancers throughout the cities of Osaka, Paris, New York, Seoul, and Gwangju.

The project is a follow-up to J-Hope’s 2022 solo album, "Jack in the Box". A newly expanded HOPE Edition of the album was released in August 2023, featuring the original album tracks and three live recordings from J-Hope’s history-making performance at Lollapalooza in 2022 in Chicago, plus two instrumental tracks.

J-Hope is currently serving his mandatory 18-month military service, which began in April 2023.
