j-hope and Becky G, a Mexican-American singer and rapper, joined J-hope on stage at Lollapalooza to perform their 2019 hit single “Chicken Noodle Soup” (CNS). For both artists, this was the fulfillment of a long-held dream. Three years after the song came out, the stars finally lined up, much to the delight of the tens of thousands of fans in Chicago’s Grant Park and the millions more who watched online.
Fans’ excitement wasn’t too much of a surprise, since the J-version of Chicken Noodle Soup was a real hit and landed at No. 20 on Billboard’s list of the best-selling singles around the world in 2019.
Even though CNS was released as a non-commercial track with little notice and no formal promotion, it hit #1 on iTunes 71 times when it first came out. Its music video, on the other hand, got 21.7 million views in its first 24 hours, making it the most-watched video on the day the song came out.
Forbes also said, “With just one hit single, BTS member J-Hope broke records and became the first artist to do many different things on charts around the world, including several genre-specific lists (like the pop and rap song sales rankings) here in the States. He released the song at No. 81 on the all-genre Hot 100, which is considered by many to be the most important song chart in the United States.
Three years ago, j-hope created music history with a soda.
South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-Wha called CNS “a wonderful example of how culture can be used to add value when combined with different industries.” He said this because the song was a successful cross-cultural collaboration.
Working on CNS, which was his first solo project with a foreign artist, j-hope had trouble getting his ideas across because he didn’t know a lot of English. Becky G grew up in California in a Mexican-American family and didn’t know how to speak Korean.
Becky G has said many times that music was their shared language. Because of this, they were able to become good friends and work well together.CNS is still fun, new, and popular three years later: # ChickenNoodleSoup was the 17th most popular trend on Twitter when J-Hope was the main act at Lollapalooza.
J-Hope always writes songs that promote respect, acceptance and having a good attitude. Even though there aren’t any deep philosophical lyrics in CNS, the whole project is a great example of how people from different cultures and countries can work together and understand each other. That is definitely something to be happy about at any time and at any place.
