BTS' J-Hope: Solo Mixtape Charts, Soars With "Airplane"
BTS' J-Hope followed in the footsteps of fellow bandmates RM and Suga by releasing his own mixtape on March 1, Hope World. The Billboard 200 for the week ending March 10 showed it entering at No. 63, and first singles "Daydream" and "Airplane" have been massive YouTube hits.
"Daydream" keeps things light but super catchy, and as J-Hope awakens in the end, the shadow of an imposing airliner crosses his wall. Now we know that shadow was presaging the powerful bounce on "Airplane" which manages to be bumping and luxurious at the same time.
BTS are reportedly cooking up their next album but if their individual mixtapes mean more like Hope World, "champagne on my airplane" will be the least they can expect, separately and together.
For those counting clicks "Daydream" has risen to 26 million views on YouTube since March 1. Posted March 6, "Airplane" has passed 6 million and is heavily trending.
The clicks are following music millions consider infectiously fun, and J-Hope's "Airplane" might have you flying too.
