Yes, a Bad Bunny, Travis Scott & the Weeknd Collab Is Coming — Here’s Everything To Know
It’s officially on the way — and much sooner than anticipated. The Bad Bunny collaboration with Travis Scott has a release date and track title, but that’s not all: we now know that The Weeknd will be joining them on this release.
The artists took to Instagram to share the news on Wednesday evening (July 19). Reportedly titled “KPOP,” the cover art was shared by all three artists with the announcement that it will drop on Thursday night (July 20). “Flame Abe Benito Out Tomorrow Night,” wrote Travis Scott in his post caption.
Further details have yet to be released on this project. However, it wasn’t a complete surprise as Benito did confirm that a collaboration had been worked on earlier this summer, telling Rolling Stone, “We worked on that a while back — and I think Travis has been working on his project for a minute.”
It’s safe to assume that this song will be a part of Travis Scott’s upcoming album UTOPIA. He recently announced that he will air a live stream on July 28 at the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt for this release. UTOPIA would be his first studio album in almost five years.
Bad Bunny most recently dropped the single, “WHERE SHE GOES.” Before that, he released an emotional norteño cumbia alongside Grupo Frontera. The Weeknd’s most recent work included the soundtrack to HBO’s The Idol, which he stars in.
Both The Weeknd and Travis Scott have collaborated with a Spanish-speaking artist, having worked with Rosalía separately. Travis Scott teamed up with Rosalía for her single “TKN,” in which Scott raps in Spanish. The Weeknd and Rosalía collaborated for “La Fama,” a bachata song in which The Weeknd also sings entirely in Spanish. Maybe they’ll break out the Spanish again with Benito?
Who knows what’s to come from this star-studded collab, but fans won’t have to wait long as it’s just hours away now.
