After a brief tease of “secrets” this week, BTS and Becky G are ready to tell all. J-Hope from the worldwide K-pop sensation has teamed with the 22-year-old songstress for a fiery, trilingual banger called, “Chicken Noodle Soup.”
If that earworm hook sounds familiar it’s because “Chicken Noodle Soup” was first performed by Webstar and Young B, a viral track in its own right back in 2006. Just as that song had an associated dance, the 2019 updated from J-Hope and Becky G is packed with choreography begging to become a challenge.

With lots of parking lot swagger, the two trade verses and moves, as monster trucks and tricked-out lift-kit cars fill the area. Eventually joined by a team of dancers, the collaboration lights up with three languages, vibrant colors, and all the attitude you can fit into four and a half minutes.
Becky G and J-Hope first met at the Billboard Music Awards in May, when BTS talked with the singer and actress backstage before their performance. According to Becky G, the group requested to speak with her and the friendship was formed.
In August, as BTS was enjoying a scheduled break, the ARMY spotted J-Hope flying to the US alone. His visit happened to line up with new friend, Becky G, posting an Instagram story about Korean snacks on set.
Speculation kicked into another gear on Wednesday, as Becky G tweeted “#BeckyHasAnotherSecret.” 20 minutes later, BTS confirmed, “Hey @iambeckyg, I have a secret, too...”
The secret is out, and “Chicken Noodle Soup” is now available everywhere.
