Becky G previously collaborated with BTS’ J-Hope

On Sept. 27, 2019, J-Hope of BTS released a single called “Chicken Noodle Soup” featuring Becky G. The single samples the song “Chicken Noodle Soup” by Young B and the Voice of Harlem.

With the trilingual song, J-Hope and Becky G sing and rap in Korean, English, and Spanish. J-Hope created the song to pay homage to his love of dance. J-Hope and Becky G also filmed a music video for the song.

In a 2020 interview with StyleCaster, Becky G discussed the collaboration and shared how much she admires the band.

“For me, it became a very personal thing. It wasn’t just, ‘Oh. Because K-pop is really popping right now, I got to support it.’ When I met J-Hope, it was genuine inspiration from an artist who works his a** off. These guys do not miss a beat,” she said of BTS.

Becky G continued, “They pay attention to every single detail. As an artist, to have that experience was the most inspiring to me. It wasn’t ‘Oh, this huge movement of K-pop’ that you gotta get onboard with.’ It was more about what they do and how they do it.”
