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.

Chiquis And Becky G Release Video For Spanish-Language Version Of Dolly Parton’s Hit Song ‘Jolene’

Chiquis And Becky G Release Video For Spanish-Language Version Of Dolly Parton’s Hit Song ‘Jolene’

Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” is arguably one of the most iconic songs in American music. We have all heard bits and pieces of the song growing up because it is just that iconic. After almost 50 years, “Jolene” has another Spanish-language cover brought to us by Becky G and Chiquis.

Spanish-speaking country music fans have a new cover to celebrate.

Becky G and Chiquis have released the music video for their Spanish-language cover of the American classic song “Jolene.” Originally released by Dolly Parton in 1973, “Jolene” is one of those songs that have become a timeless classic of American music.

Country music is quickly becoming a favorite genre in the Latino community. There has been a 25 percent increase in Latino support of country music. When you consider how many Latinos live in the south in states like Texas, it kind of makes sense.

Rolling Stone magazine claimed that it was the first Spanish-language cover of the song.

The magazine got called out on Twitter after claiming that this was the first Spanish-language cover of “Jolene.” The cover by regional Mexican music divas Becky G and Chiquis is good but it is not the first.

The first Spanish-language cover of “Jolene” is by Las Chicas del Can.

The Dominican group recorded “Youlin” in 1985 and the merengue take on the song is really fun to listen to. The version from the girl group is a very different take and feel on the song as compared to Becky G and Chiquis. The two songs are very different and both are very fun to listen to.

Either way, fans of country and regional Mexican music are here for this.

The music video is an animated rollercoaster with Becky G and Chiquis playing tough mujeres doing their thing. The music video is set up like a comic book because we all know that the most amazing superhero stories are comic books. Tbh, these two looked perfect in their tough acting roles.

If you want to listen to the original “Jolene,” here it is.

Truly, this will probably remain one of the greatest American classics of all time.

The substantial BTS donation was made during a time that protests broke out across the country after the recent deaths of police victims George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

In response to BTS’s donation, Kailee Scales, the managing director for Black Lives Matter said that she was moved by BTS’s generosity.

“Black people all over the world are in pain at this moment from the trauma of centuries of oppression,” Scales said in a statement to Variety earlier this week.“. “We are moved by the generosity of BTS and allies all over the world who stand in solidarity in the fight for Black lives.”

On Sunday, BTS’s $1 million donations inspired the #MatchAMillion on Twitter.

Within 24 hours of the #MatchAMillion trend, fans raised over $817,000.

By the end of Sunday, the ARMY fundraiser revealed on Twitter that they had reached their $1 million goal. The fundraiser decided to donate the $1 million donations to “Bailouts for those arrested for protesting police brutality” and “support for the physical and mental health of the black community.”
