J-Hope releases song with Becky G

J-Hope, a member of K-pop boy band BTS, released a hip-hop single featuring American musician Becky G on Friday, his management agency said.

The song, “Chicken Noodle Soup,” which was released Friday evening through BTS’ official social media channels, is a recreation of the namesake song released by American musician, DJ Webstar and rapper Young B.

The new song also came with a music video featuring J-Hope and Becky G, according to Big Hit Entertainment.

J-Hope wrote Korean rap lines for “Chicken Noodle Soup” while Becky G wrote her lines in Spanish, adding fresh elements to the old-school hip-hop song.

The two artists joined hands for the collaboration, having both fallen for hip-hop music in their childhoods.

The song also comes with snappy choreography executed by J-Hope and Becky G in the music video as well as a dance ensemble of some 50 dancers from across the world.

J-Hope, known for his dance prowess, has also shown ability in music production, having joined in the production and rapping of many BTS songs, including “MIC Drop.”
