In the wake of a year that saw Bad Bunny start to redefine expectations for Latino pop stars and link with hip-hop giants, the trap en español poster boy certainly has his work cut out for him. As is the case with any star who is riding high on the success of a breakout single, fans are eager to see how El Conejo Malo will follow up on “Krippy Kush,” which garnered remixes with Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage, and even Travis Scott.
Today, we may have the answer: an upcoming collab with none other than rap king Future. Late last night on Instagram, Benito Ocasio posted a one-minute teaser of an untitled track featuring the Atlanta star. On the song, Ocasio shouts out Barack Obama, Lebron James, and Spiff TV, the music video director and A&R who’s been slowly bridging the gap between the reggaeton and U.S. hip-hop market. As Rapetón reports, the clip is brewing a bit of controversy; El Conejo Malo seems to allude to sexual relationships with Puerto Rican models Mimi Pabón and Natalia Rivera, and even BB himself seems to understand the song is contentious, captioning the post “Que vulgar ese muchacho!”
Future chimes in towards the end of the clip with his familiar auto-tuned drawl, rapping about his love of reality stars.
No word on where or when the track will drop, but listen to the full clip below, and read our feature about how Bad Bunny became the face of Latin trap here.
