Exactly three years after dropping his Hope World mixtape on March 1, 2018, J-Hope is giving fans a 2021 version of one of his album’s best tracks: « Blue Side. » The original song serves as the outro to his project, so it’s only about a minute-and-a-half long. The new version, however, runs over three minutes and includes brand new lyrics. ARMYs, you have to see what BTS’ J-Hope’s « Blue Side » lyrics mean in English because they’ll hit you hard.
Hope World marked J-Hope’s first mixtape. Fans were looking forward to the release so much, they dubbed it « Hixtape, » and helped the album debut at No. 63 on the Billboard 200, making J-Hope the highest-charting K-pop solo act at the time.
Along with the release of his mixtape, J-Hope surprised fans with his « Daydream » music video. The visual perfectly captured his project’s aesthetic by incorporating bright colors to match J-Hope’s equally bright personality. Just like how there’s different sides to him, the songs on the album are just as complex. They sound upbeat and cheery, but the lyrics actually carry a deeper message of J-Hope’s innermost thoughts and desires. With this in mind, « Blue Side » was the perfect track to end his mixtape because its slow, mesmerizing sound makes listeners feel like they’re entering a dream.
Believe it or not, the 2021 version is even more beautiful. The track maintains the original’s dreamy vibe, but it includes full verses expanding on its message. « Spring, summer, fall, winter, always the same feeling, blue/ I want to go back to the time when I didn’t know anything, blue, » J-Hope raps.
During a March 1, 2018, VLIVE, J-Hope explained the song is about his desire to go back in time when he was « young and clueless. » Since everyone has felt that same feeling at one point, the new lyrics to « Blue Side » will hit you right in the feels.
