UPDATE: On Thursday, BTS’ Big Hit Entertainment announced an upcoming collab between J-Hope and Becky G dubbed “Chicken Noodle Soup,” which will drop on Friday at 5 a.m. ET. The collab, which will feature both Korean and Spanish lyrics, is inspired by Webstar and Young AB’s “Chicken Noodle Soup” featuring AG aka The Voice of Harlem from 2006, which was an integral inspiration of both stars when they were young. They’ll reimagine the iconic choreography in the song’s music video.

Is a new Latin pop-meets-K-pop collaboration coming courtesy of Becky G and BTS? That’s what fans around the globe are wondering after a series of tweets on Wednesday night.

Becky G cryptically tweeted, “Soooo... #BeckyHasAnotherSecret.” Shortly after, BTS’ account responded, resulting in widespread excitement and curiosity surrounding the secret they share, which many fans believe to be an upcoming song together. “Hey @iambeckyg, I have a secret, too... #CNS,” the septet’s shared account tweeted, resulting in Becky G retweeting it with a series of emojis responding in turn to the secretive state of things.

See the exchange below:

According to some, the secret is a Becky G and J-Hope collaboration, in part spurred by the BTS rapper making a quick trip to Los Angeles last month during BTS’ multi-week vacation period and break from making any public appearances.

Becky G previously tweeted about a "secret" ahead of her release of her song "Secrets" earlier this month.

BTS and Becky G met in May at this year's Billboard Music Awards.
