“on the street (with J. Cole)”

The Kpop idol launches into heartfelt rap verses and choruses about what he hopes ARMY will take away from the song. J. Cole features on the second verse with his own rap. With the signature vinyl scratches and melodic whistle, “on the street (with J. Cole)” is another beautifully mixed, classic J-Hope song.

In an interview with Variety, the artist expounds upon what this lofi hip-hop song means to him. Tamar Herman writes that “on the street (with J. Cole)” “is a reflection of j-hope’s career and life thus far, looking towards the future while recalling the path he walked to get there, emphasizing his history as a street dancer.” “on the street (with J. Cole)” is so named to reference, not only his time as a street dance before BTS, but also a broader metaphor for life and what can be encountered on it.

The song also holds special meaning to J-Hope because it is a collaboration with J. Cole. That artist happens to be one of J-Hope’s biggest musical idols.

J-Hope’s Military Enlistment Process Has Already Begun

Now, onto the other reason ARMY are crying their eyes out.

Herman from Variety writes that “on the street (with J. Cole)” “arrives on the verge of j-hope taking a step out of the spotlight temporarily, soon enlisting in South Korea’s military, fulfilling the country’s mandatory draft service.”

Because the song comes not long after the artist’s enlistment announcement, many ARMY are seeing this song as the beginning of a farewell.

Jin, the eldest BTS member, just recently left for his enlistment term this past December. ARMY were not expecting any of the members, let alone J-Hope, who is not the second eldest, to leave them so soon.

Regardless, they stand behind J-Hope, Jin, and the other members. They continue to cheer on and support BTS as a whole, as well as the individuals who make up the Kpop group.
