BTS member J-Hope is currently on cloud nine for multiple reasons. Be it the success of the Septet’s anthology album Proof or the release of his solo album Jack in the Box, Hobi is basking in the joy of multiple things now. It was also revealed in multiple reports that J-Hope will also be performing in Lollapalooza on July 31, 2022, much to the excitement of the fans. It will make him the first-ever Korean artist to headline the main stage of the much-loved US festival.
Ahead of his Lollapalooza performance, BTS member J-Hope has left the Army wondering about what he would be doing during his hour-long stay on the grand stage. In the midst of all this, the creative agency The Lab, which had previously worked with the Septet for ON, and J-Hope and Becky G’s collaborative track Chicken Noodle Soup, took to Instagram for a special announcement on July 27, 2022. The official account shared a reel with the Chicken Noodle Soup video and tagged Hobi and Becky G in the caption while writing, “Absolutely loved being a part of this.”
The Lab further shared the reel on its official Instagram story and tagged both the artists. If that wasn’t enough, the same official account shared Lollapalooza’s post featuring J-Hope.
The fan speculations
The stories shared by The Lab and Lollapalooza have left the fans speculating about J-Hope’s upcoming performance at the US festival. Most of them feel that it’s a hint about Hobi performing with Becky G on Chicken Noodle Soup at the event. If that happens, it will be the first time that both the artists will be performing the track live together.
