Update June 21: The highly-anticipated collaboration is official! In a recent Rolling Stone cover story published today (June 12), Bad Bunny confirmed that the buzzed-about collaboration with Travis Scott is real. “We worked on that a while back — and I think Travis has been working on his project for a minute,” he said.
Although Travis Scott has yet to release an album date for UTOPIA—the album that the collaboration may be part of—many speculate that it’ll come out later this month.
Are Travis Scott and Bad Bunny dropping a new trap banger soon? A new video featuring what sounds like the Puerto Rican’s iconic voice is circulating the internet, making social media users think he’s featured on Scott’s upcoming album UTOPIA.
Scott is currently teasing UTOPIA. Part of his album hype is unveiling his new music for selected listeners, including his hometown’s baseball team. This time, the album was played at a party in Monaco, where someone recorded what sounded like Benito’s distinctive voice on one of the tracks. Despite the collaboration not being confirmed yet, many social media users are excited to hear Bad Bunny on what could be Scott’s next album release.
Though the video sounds distorted and full of the crowd’s cheers, Benito’s voice stands out in what appears to be a more dancehall and synth-heavy joint. Regardless of the song’s genre, social media users are highly anticipating the potential duo release. A Twitter user wrote: “i always knew bad bunny was going to have a track with travis scott.” Another Twitter user wrote: “Anxious to see what Bad Bunny and Travis Scott have in store for us.”
What can we expect from UTOPIA? In a recent interview, Scott shared that UTOPIA is “something that people feel is so far-fetched and out of reach, some perfect state of mind.” “But you create it yourself,” the rapper said. “There are people who achieve Utopia every day. They may not be the richest people with the dopest cribs, but it’s a utopia wherever they are, and that’s the most you can have.”
On the other hand, Bad Bunny recently dropped his newest single, “WHERE SHE GOES.” In this new song, Benito explores a new sound in the jersey club world rather than his usual reggaeton or trap tracks. Before that, he released an emotional norteño cumbia alongside Grupo Frontera. With that in mind, we can expect just about anything for the alleged collaboration with Scott.
