“Chicken Noodle Soup” was the first song that J-Hope learned to dance to, and Becky G also fell for the song when she was a child. This collaboration marks a full-circle moment for both the South Korean rapper and the American singer.

During his VLive broadcast, J-Hope explained that the original “Chicken Noodle Soup” by Webstar and Young B was a meaningful song for him. This is because when he was a teenager, he often listened to the song. It was also the first song he listened to when he began learning how to dance.

Since the new song “Chicken Noodle Soup” has been released, the song has been a bop and it broke many records. J-Hope and Becky G proved that they both are really talented artists. They can both sing, rap, and dance. But we cannot fully appreciate the song unless we know what the song really means.

“CNS” stands for “Chicken Noodle Soup.” J-Hope and Becky G made the remake version of the classic 2006 dance-floor song by DJ Webstar and Young B with their own version and incorporated trilingual lyrics in it. J-Hope raps in Korean and Becky G raps in Spanish.

“Chicken Noodle Soup” is international in its approach not only because it is by vocalists from two very different parts of the world, but more than that, the two artists give shoutouts to their respective places of origin. As Becky G said, the artist “always gets love from where he came from.”

While in the J-Hope side, he wrote “Gwangju,” a city in South Korea in his lyrics. And he refers to “Geum-nam Chung-jang Street,” a section of this locality, as his “Harlem.” He also points out the strong hip-hop influence behind “Chicken Noodle Soup,” as its tune and many of its lyrics have actually derived from the original version of the song.
