Becky G And BTS’s J-Hope Confirmed Their Upcoming Collaboration And Stan Twitter Is Freaking Out

Becky G is one pop diva that loves a good collaboration. The Latina has teamed up musically with everyone from will.i.am and French Montana to Pitbull and Bad Bunny. Music isn’t the only place Becky likes to collaborate with another party. Earlier this year, the “Shower” singer also joined forces with ColourPop Cosmetics to create her own line of bold and brilliant makeup. So, it seems that when it comes to creating, the entertainer isn’t afraid to get other voices into the mix. 

It now seems that Becky G has confirmed another big collaboration and it has set Stan Twitter ablaze with suspicion and hype.

On Wednesday night, Becky took to Twitter to make a mysterious tweet that started a storm of speculation. In it, she used the hashtag “#BeckyHasAnotherSecret.” At first glance, the hashtag could have been referring to the Latina’s new single “Secrets” that was just released on September 13th. However, another tweet soon joined her own and added to the mystery. 

BTS member J-Hope responded via the band’s official Twitter handle with the words, “Hey @iambeckyg, I have a secret, too…????????????” along with the mysterious abbreviated hashtag #CNS. In response, Becky retweeted J-Hope’s message and included a series of emojis of her own, playing it coy with their shared secret keeping. 

That’s all it took for Beasters (Becky G fans) and member’s of BTS’ A.R.M.Y. to go into overdrive trying to figure out what the secret is.

Fans of both of the entertainers are determined that these tweets confirm a collaboration between the two. Latinx members of the A.R.M.Y. — which boasts impressive numbers on Twitter — is especially living right now with the thought of a creative meeting between their favorite K-Pop band and the Latina singer.

J-Hope, whose nickname is Hobi, and Becky’s musical mashup has been dubbed “Hobi G” by fans and has is something that Beasters and the A.R.M.Y. have been expecting for a while. The pair met back in May of 2019 at the Billboard Music Awards and J-Hope has since named Becky as one of his potential future collaborators. 

Back in September, rumors of a BTS and Becky G partnership got more credit when the Latina shared a short Instagram story while in L.A. In the video, some Korean snacks were shown. Fans connected the dots and speculated that J-Hope or other members of the Korean super group were on set with the Latina.

The suspicion of a secret collaboration was further stoked by the A.R.M.Y.’s own tracking of J-Hope’s whereabouts.

Around the time of Becky’s Korean snack food Instagram story, J-Hope (whose real name is Jung Hoseok) was in L.A. for “unknown solo promotion.” This was during BTS’ scheduled vacation and the K-Pop star was back in Korea after only a few days in the States.  
When he was asked about the trip in a later interview, J-Hope simply said that the visit was part of “important businesssu.” However, the Korean star later teased fans with with news of an upcoming project. “Hang in there!! Everybody will be surprised,” he wrote to a fan on the Weverse app.

The A.R.M.Y. and Beasters also took Becky’s recent promotion of her new single as a sign that a collaboration was in the works.

On September 12, the Latina began using the hashtag #BeckyHasASecret in a series of tweets. Though this hashtag was later proved to be promotion for her new single, “Secrets,” A.R.M.Y. members and Beasters alike were certain that the secret Becky was referring to was the much-anticipated collab. 

With so many suspicions but no confirmations, fans were cautious not to jump to conclusions when Becky made her most recent “secret” tweet. That is, until J-Hope retweeted it and all but confirmed the wishes of thousands of fans. 

Now that the collaboration is officially happening, the A.R.M.Y. and Beasters are all trying to decode what #CNS means and what it has to do with this new partnership.

Fans are having fun speculating what the acronym might actually stand for. Some of the guesses include phrases like “Cuenta Nuestro Secreto,” “Can Nobody Sleep,” “Consumer Network Service,” “Consulting N Solutions,” and “Central Nervous System.” Fans are also wondering whether this collaboration is a new song or a remix of one of BTS’ or Becky G’s already released singles.

To add to the mystery, the official account for “The Masked Singer” also retweeted the Becky G/J-Hope series of tweets and added its own set of eye emojis. Now fans are wondering if the tweets are referring to an appearance on the singing entertainment show or if the account was just adding unnecessary mystery to the mix. 

There’s no saying what this Becky G and BTS collaboration will entail as of yet but one thing is certain: Stan Twitter is ready for whatever it is.

Top 10 All-Women Collaborations in Latin Music

Top 10 All-Women Collaborations in Latin Music

In honor of Women’s History Month, Latido Music has lined up 10 of our favorite all-women collaborations in Latin Music. In no particular order, here’s 10 girl-power anthems that we should be bumping all year long.

“Sin Pijama”

Mexican-American singer Becky G flipped the script on the antiquated idea that two women couldn’t get a hit together when she collaborated with Dominican reggaetonera Natti Natasha. Their fun and flirty music video for “Sin Pijama” has racked up over 1.8 billion on views on YouTube, outpacing some of top reggaetoneros. Following the success of this knockout duo, collaboration among women in Latin music has been on the rise, and we love to see it.

“Tick Tock”

Mexican pop icon Thalía has been one of the top proponents for all-women collaborations. She became the first Mexican female artist to score a billion a views on YouTube with “No Me Acuerdo” featuring Natasha. On 2018’s Valiente album, Thalía also teamed up with Argentine pop princess Lali for “Lindo Pero Bruto.” Last year, Thalía joined forces with her Latin Music Queens co-stars, fellow Mexicana Sofía Reyes and Colombian rapper Farina, for the empowering “Tick Tock.” The trio of women didn’t have time for any foolishness.

“Tusa”

Trini-American superstar Nicki Minaj got all up her in reggaeton gig on Karol G’s “Tusa.” She was even singing a bit in Spanish with the Colombian reggaetonera. Last year, Minaj had everyone, even the guys, singing, “Ahora soy una chica mala.” This was a regal bop fit for two queens and they wore that crown well. The song also garnered Minaj her first Latin Grammy nomination. That’s the power of “La Tusa.”

“No Al Aguacil”

One overlooked all-women collaboration is Mexican goddess Gloria Trevi’s “No Al Aguacil” with fellow Mexicana Paulina Rubio. The song was never released as a single (thought it should’ve been one) and it’s buried in Trevi’s 2011 album Gloria. Very much reflecting the early 2010s, “No Al Aguacil” is an electro-pop moment that these pop icons served with plenty of girl power.

“22”

In 2019, Argentine pop princess Tini came through with one of the best collaborations of the year. For kiss-off anthem “22,” she teamed up with Colombian singer Greeicy. Tini, who was turning 22 at the time, was not going to let any heartbreak rain on her birthday celebrations. Greeicy served as another voice of reason for why crying over that guy would not be worth it. This cumbiatón moment was everything.

“Santería”

Last year, Spanish star Lola Índigo recruited Mexican pop princess Danna Paola and Chilean singer Denise Rosenthal for “Santería.” Each woman adds their own flair and attitude to this bubbling pop cauldron. Like the Charmed sisters, the power of three is real here, and together these women serve a spellbinding collaboration.

“Ladrón”

Argentine pop princess Lali teamed up with Argentina’s top woman in Latin trap, Cazzu, last year. The alluring “Ladrón” was a moment of girl power that highlighted the talent in their country. The two women united in turning the tables on a no-good men. “You wanted to play me… the one that’s playing you is me,” Lali and Cazzu sang together.

“High” Remix

Last year, rising Argentine singer Maria Becerra upped the girl power of her breakthrough hit “High.” For the all-women remix, she teamed up with Índigo and her compatriot Tini. Together, they also upped the angst factor on this mesmerizing, trap-lite bop.  

“La Rueda”

Ivonne Galaz and Natalie López are making way for women in the male-dominated corridos tumbados space. As the two women signed to the Rancho Humilde record label, they teamed up for “La Rueda” on last year’s Corridos Tumbados Vol. 2 album. What a moment to hear two Mexicanas find strength in each other’s stories of overcoming the struggle. Galaz and López tap into an emotion in the genre that the guys can’t touch.

“Modo Turbo”

Three Brazilian queens joined forces for last year’s “Modo Turbo.” Anitta and Luísa Sonza aligned with drag pop superstar Pabllo Vittar. “Fasten your seatbelt / Turbo mode,” Sonza encouraged in Portuguese. They certainly took their fans for a wild ride with this fierce and stellar collaboration.
