Since its been two years since Crush has released any of his own music, due to military service, the news couldn’t get any better when it was revealed the P NATION artist tapped BTS‘ very own J-Hope to hop on the track.
Though no trace of the BTS member can be found in the 23-second teaser, the funk- and soul-inspired track compliments J-Hope’s energy and style for music. For fans of Crush, however, will notice the slight genre shift in “Rush Hour” as many may know Crush as the R&B/hip-hop crooner and balladeer.
Seen in the teaser rocking in the streets, surrounded by dancers all while ad-libbing, one can say Crush’s take on funk and soul can be quite reminiscent of the Godfather Of Soul, the late James Brown.
Just last month, the award-winning artist was discharged from the military and took part in PSY’s PSY 9 studio album by featuring in his track “Happier.” The digital release of “Rush Hour” is set to drop on September 22 at 6 p.m. KST — 5 a.m. ET/2 a.m. PT on all streaming platforms.
