J-Hope of BTS hit Billboard’s Hot 100 chart

J-Hope of boy band BTS became the first member of the band to hit Billboard’s Hot 100 chart without the group, thanks to his collaboration with Becky G in “Chicken Noodle Soup.”

“While BTS has solidified itself as a Billboard Hot 100 chart force, the group’s individual members are now proving their power,” Billboard said on Tuesday.

“J-Hope saw his new solo single ‘Chicken Noodle Soup,’ featuring Becky G, debut at No. 81 on the Hot 100 dated Oct. 12, as the dancer-rapper-vocalist becomes the first member of BTS to land a solo Hot 100 hit apart from the group.”

The track accumulated 9.7 million U.S. streams and 11,000 downloads over the past week, according to Nielsen Music.

J-Hope is now the sixth K-pop artist to land in the Hot 100 and the third solo artist to do so.

“Chicken Noodle Soup” featuring U.S. singer Becky G features lyrics sung in English, Korean and Spanish, giving it a global appeal.

The hook of the song is taken from the 2006 song “Chicken Noodle Soup” by Webstar and Young B but has been given a trendy update by the two young singers.

The song currently tops the iTunes charts in 69 regions and also ranks No. 82 on Britain’s Official Singles Charts Top 100.
