Fans Believe Jessi May Be Hinting At A Collaboration With BTS’s J-Hope

Fans noticed she’s been admiring J-Hope.

Jessi has been busy lately with festival performances, preparing for the launch of her new makeup brand, UN2 Beauty, and possibly preparing for a collaboration with BTS‘s J-Hope?

Jessi recently did a few things that had fans wondering if she’ll be featured on J-Hope’s upcoming album, Jack in the Box.

J-Hope just released his song, “MORE,” and fans are loving the versatility J-Hope displayed in his song and concept.

Fellow celebrities have been showing love for the new track, including BTS’s RM, who posted an Instagram story and tagged J-Hope, and American artist KAWS, who designed the track cover for “MORE.”

Among the other public admirers of the song were Korean American model, blogger, and television personality, Irene Kim, South Korean rapper and producer, Supreme Boi, and Jessi.

Jessi posting “MORE” on her story isn’t completely out of character. Jessi had previously featured with BTS in an SK Telecom commercial in 2016.

Fans also noted that Jessi has been supportive of BIGHIT Music groups in the past. She is known to have a close relationship with BTS’s labelmates TXT.

Aside from mentioning J-Hope in her Instagram story, Jessi was also very complimentary of J-Hope in her recent Instagram Live. She revealed on Show!terview last year that her BTS bias was Jungkook; when someone asked about him during the Instagram live, she said she has been admiring J-Hope lately. 

With her showing support to J-Hope, fans began to speculate that Jessi could possibly be featured on his upcoming album.

What really caught fans’ attention was the fact that J-Hope reposted Jessi’s story on his own Instagram story.

He had also reposted stories from RM, Irene Kim, Supreme Boi, Lollapalooza, Verdy, Apple Music, and more, so it could be a coincidence. That hasn’t stopped fans from wishing for a collaboration between the two.

This is all speculation, but fans will find out if there is any truth to it when J-Hope’s album is released on July 15th.
