Thania Garcia South Korean R&B singer Crush, who is in the midst of a comeback after a two-year military service hiatus, has recruited BTS’ J-Hope for his new single, “Rush Hour.” The celebratory song arrived on Thursday with an accompanying music video which also stars J-Hope and sees both artists skating through elaborate dance numbers in an alleyway.
After Crush begins the track, he’s joined by the BTS member, who playfully raps, “Wherever I go now it’s a red carpet feel / Cameras snapping wherever I go like flash, flash,” as a crowd of camera flashes appears behind him.
Crush told the Korean entertainment publication Soompi that his decision to collaborate with J-Hope was natural, as they are both going in a similar musical direction, and added that he “was so grateful for [J-Hope] when he helped monitor and provided coaching.” Back in April, Crush was featured on Psy’s “Psy 9th” studio album while he was still serving his mandatory military enlistment. “Rush Hour” is his first release since being discharged from that service in August.
Meanwhile, Korean lawmakers are still going back and forth on whether or not J-Hope and his BTS bandmates will be exempt from their military obligations.Read more on variety.com
