On September 27, 2019, J-Hope dropped what would become his most popular solo song.
The BTS member, with featured artist Becky G, covered the 2006 song “Chicken Noodle Soup” originally performed by Webstar and Young B, and it instantly became a huge hit.
Not only was the song covered in a fun, modern way, but the dance challenge that went along with it also went pretty viral, with fans all around the world joining in on the fun, as well as other BTS members!
Now, one year later, the song is nearing 200 million views, making it the most-viewed BTS solo song!
To celebrate the one year anniversary of the song’s release, ARMYs have #1YearWithCNS trending on Twitter at over 130k tweets as of the time of this writing, which will no doubt get higher as the day continues!
