Becky G Reflects On Her ‘Really Badass’ Trilingual Collaboration With BTS’ J-Hope On ‘Chicken Noodle Soup’

Becky G looked back at what it was like to work with BTSJ-Hope in a new interview with Teen Vogue released Wednesday (Sept. 14).

“We were one of the first to do Korean, Spanish and English. It’s really bad,” she said of the pair’s 2019 collaboration “Chicken Noodle Soup.” “I’m so glad it happened the way it did. To this day, it’s one of those, ‘I see you, you see me, and even though we might not necessarily have the deepest conversations, we get it’ [relationships].”

The trilingual bop, which sparked a viral dance craze with its funky choreography, got Becky G and K-pop idol a top 10 hit on Digital song sales chart and also peaked at No. 81 on Billboard Hot 100 — making J-Hope the first member of BTS to chart the figure as a solo artist outside the group.

During her interview, the pop star also talked about sometimes wearing the mantle of representation as one Latin artist and said, “I’ve been the Latina face of a lot of brands and not everyone looks like me. Not everyone identifies with their Latinx culture the same way I do. And so I would love to create a space where if you’re part of the Latinx community, you feel represented and you feel seen… Latinidad is different for everyone.”

Recently, Becky G earned her first solo No. 1 on Latin Airplay Chart with his latest single “Baile Con Mi Ex,” while J-Hope served as the first South Korean headliner in the Lollapalooza history. During his magnetic set in support of his debut solo album Jack in the boxthe K-pop rapper even brought out Becky to perform “Chicken Noodle Soup” live for the first time.
