J-hope inspired ARMYs worldwide by working with his longtime role model, J.Cole, for this significant track, which was made public earlier this month on March 3 as a special gift to fans in honour of his impending military enrollment. And “On the Street” has given J-Hope his highest solo entry on the “Hot 100” chart to date!
The selling power of ARMYs is illustrated by the fact that “On the Street” came in at 2nd position “Top-Selling Singles” chart of this week, just behind Nicki Minaj.
Congrats on your entry, J-Hope and J.Cole!
Jung Hoseok, also known as BTS’ J-Hope, recently celebrated his 29th birthday and greeted his fans by sharing tales of his legendary collaboration with his own “inspiration,” J. Cole.
The two initially connected while performing at the 2022 Lollapalooza music festival, where the BTS member was headlining and making a significant career move.
The brief encounter in the backstage area developed into something extraordinary as J-Hope connected with the 38-year-old American rapper to write a song essential for their respective fan bases.
While it is no secret that the BTS member respects the ‘Work Out’ singer, many people may not know that J-Hope attributes his inspiration to the artist from an early age.
In the recent video, J-Hope was anxious but eager to meet his idol so they could genuinely collaborate on music rather than pose for photos.
The BTS member also penned a message to the celebrity in his handwriting, admiring it as a faithful fan would.
The K-pop artist could not contain his excitement when the two gathered, ready to shoot together, and claimed that his mind had gone blank.

On the other side, J. Cole claimed that the fact that the two ended up writing a song together was a “gift”.
J-Hope, a consummate professional, concentrated on finishing the shoot in New York. The younger musician described how J. Cole’s music was the first one he started genuinely listening to when he was a boy of nearly 15 years old.

That may be the beginning of the K-pop star’s ambitious intentions for his dance project, “HOPE ON THE STREET,” the South Korean star said.
