It's exactly one month and one year since Becky G and BTS' J-Hope released their surprise collaboration "Chicken Noodle Soup". Talking about it now, the Latina artist said it has become "a very personal thing" for her.
"It wasn’t just, 'Oh. Because K-Pop is really popping right now, I got to support it,'" she told Stylecaster. The singer-actress then credited the South Korean idol for inspiring her. "When I met J-Hope, it was genuine inspiration from an artist who works his ass off. These guys do not miss a beat. They pay attention to every single detail. As an artist, to have that experience was the most inspiring to me."
Becky also revealed that she's still in contact with J-Hope. "He’s really involved in a lot of other aspects of being an artist. He isn’t just someone who sings a song and performs. He’s a true creative person. We obviously see his dancing skills. I know he gets behind the scenes of what the music becomes and stuff like that. I like to check in on him for sure and see how he’s holding up and doing these days."
