J-Hope from BTS and Becky G just announced they are collaborating on a song. Their collaboration, allegedly titled "Chicken Noodle Soup," drops on Sept. 27. While this collaboration might seem out of nowhere, BTS fans predicted the collaboration between J-Hope and Becky G would happen.

While BTS was on hiatus, J-Hope traveled to LA for an official promotion. He did not tell fans what he was doing in LA, and some fans suspected it involved a follow-up to his mixtape, HopeWorld. Then Becky G posted a video from the set of a music video and theories took off.
In the video, Becky G showed a table of snacks. BTS fans noticed the snacks were Korean and realized J-Hope was in LA at the same time as Becky G. From that video and J-Hope’s schedule, fans suspected J-Hope and Becky G were collaborating on a song.
