Singer Crush has finally made his much-anticipated comeback with “Rush Hour (feat. BTS’s J-Hope)” after a two-year hiatus!
As part of promotions for the comeback, Crush invited J-Hope to be the first guest on his driving talk show, Black VOX. Fans were excited to see the two artists interact more, especially after Crush’s appearance on IU Pallette where the two spent a portion of the show praising the BTS member.
The two discussed how their collaboration came to be, with J-Hope sharing how excited he was that Crush contacted him with a song, proving how big of a fanboy he is after all these years!
One day you called me, you said ‘I prepared a song for you. Upon hearing that I thought, ‘wow, it’s Crush!’

J-Hope continued to praise Crush, specifically talking about how “Rush Hour” made a strong impression on him because the singer had not previously done a song like that before.
While on the topic of the song, Crush shared with J-Hope that he had been pleasantly surprised in many different ways while working with him. J-Hope seemed a bit surprised but pleased about hearing this.
Crush continues by saying that even though J-Hope was just a featured artist on the song, he showed just as much energy and excitement as though it was his own solo release!
After Crush expressed his gratitude, J-Hope explained why he acted like that throughout the collaboration. According to him, whenever he participates in a project that is not his own, he believes that he should have “sincerity and respect” towards the project. J-Hope believes that this method is the only way of creating an unmatched energy!
ARMY won’t be surprised to hear that J-Hope throws his all into everything he does. In another interview, Crush revealed that J-Hope recorded take after take without any breaks while working on the song, showing off his tremendous work ethic.
