First Crocs, Now Adidas: Bad Bunny To Launch Major Collaboration And Here’s What We Know So Far

It seems like 2020 has been the year of sneaker collaborations – or in Bad Bunny’s case – Crocs collaborations. From Bad Bunny to J Balvin, Travis Scott to Christian Dior, it seems that everyone is trying to get their name on a fresh pair of sneakers.

And I’m not complaining. I love a good shoe collaboration as much as the next guy, however, news of a possible Adidas and Bad Bunny collaborations has me extra excited since both of those are my favorites of their respective worlds. For me: Adidas is to the sneaker world what Bad Bunny is to reggaetón.

So far there haven’t been a lot of details released by either San Benito nor Adidas but this is what we do know.

Adidas x Bad Bunny will be releasing an epic sneaker collection early next year.

It’s just weeks after Bad Bunny’s custom Crocs basically broke the Internet and we’re already getting news (or at least rumors) of a possible Adidas x Bad Bunny collaboration happening soon. According to a story by Complex, Bad Bunny is about to bring more of his signature looks to your sneaker collection.

The Complex story says that a source familiar with the brand’s product plans for next year told them about the likely collab. However, neither Adidas nor Bad Bunny have announced the sneaker and wouldn’t confirm the project when reached for comment. If true though, the kicks would likely arrive as part of the sportswear brand’s Spring/Summer 2021 offerings.

In a photo Complex shared of the rumored sneaker, we get a possible first look at the soon-to-be sold out sneaker. The color palette featured on the Puerto Rican’s take on the Forum silhouette looks quite similar to his crocs with all-beige detailing that very well may also be glow-in-the-dark. The kicks seem to feature light blue design details on the sole and side sole of the shoes.

An Adidas x Bad Bunny collab will likely do as well or even better then his recent Crocs launch.

If rumors are true, the Forum would be El Conejo Malo’s first sneaker collaboration, although he already has a wildly-successful Crocs line that he released in September. And fans have proven themselves willing to go to great lengths to get their hands on Bad Bunny anything basically (myself included!).

The Crocs retail for $60 USD but are already being resold for more than $200 USD on sites like e-bay. Not to mention that the Crocs launch left many fans disappointed because of their instant success – the line sold out within minutes.

When the collab was initially announced, Bad Bunny called himself a “longtime fan” of the famous brand, adding that he hoped his version inspires his fans to “have their own fun with their personal style and wearing what makes them happy.”

He even got a little sentimental, adding: “I believe in being true and not placing limitations on myself, which is also something Crocs represents, and this is the message I always want to make sure I send out to my fans.”

For those of you who aren’t well-versed in Croc lingo, Jibbitz charms are jewelry-like flair you can pin through the holes of your Crocs. The Bad Bunny x Crocs Jibbits reference his music from his recent YHLQMDLG album–fire emojis, stars, planets, a man holding a sign that says: zona de perreo. And, of course, there was a bunny Jibbit as well.

It’s no secret that Bad Bunny is a sneaker lover.

In a 2018 episode of Sneaker Shopping on Complex, Bad Bunny explained his footwear history, saying that his native Puerto Rico was lacking in boutique stores.

“Ever since I was a child, I’ve liked sneakers,” Bad Bunny said then.

He’s not the only Latin trap artist that’s expected to release their own shoe soon. Colombian reggaeton star J Balvin said in an April interview with High Snobiety that his Air Jordan 1 collaboration was supposed to launch in November. Jordan Brand hasn’t confirmed this news.

Bad Bunny has quickly become one of the most beloved artists in the world. The Puerto Rican artist’s career has skyrocketed over the past couple of years and there is no slowing him down. Spotify’s 2020 wrap showed that Bad Bunny is indeed one of the most popular artists in the world.

Bad Bunny’s music is taking over the world and there is proof.

The singer is Spotify’s most-streamed artist in 2020 according to the platform’s yearly round-up. Last year Bad Bunny was the fifth most-streamed artist in the world so this was definitely a bigger and better year for San Benito.

Bad Bunny is not the only Latino at the top of the Spotify streaming charts. J Balvin came in at third place giving Latin music more recognition as one of the most popular genres.

Bad Bunny also come in wit Spotify’s most stream album of the year.

“YHLQMDLG” is Bad Bunny’s second studio album and it has been a quantifiable success. The album reached No. 1 in the U.S. on the Independent Albums Billboard, Top Latin Albums Billboard, and Latin Rhythm Albums Billboard charts.

Last year, Camila Cabello represented for the Latinas. The Cuban-Mexican-American pop star was all over the Spotify charts. Namely, Cabello was the fourth most-streamed female artist and “Señorita,” her collab with Shawn Mendes, was the most streamed song on Spotify for 2019.

Bad Bunny kept himself super relevant while in quarantine because his social media game is strong.

Bad Bunny kept his music coming while in quarantine. The Puerto Rican super star kept making things happen. He even created a quarantine anthem that he recorded with his significant other. Who could forget when “En Casita” hit Soundcloud? It was Bad Bunny’s way fo make quarantine worth it and trying to make sure that everyone did what they need to do to get past this pandemic.

Latin music’s popularity is growing fast around the world.

Artists like Bad Bunny, Karol G, and J Balvin are taking the Latin sounds and taking them international. More and more people are tuning in to the songs that make our own communities bump. With the way things are going, Latin music’s world takeover is not going to stop anytime soon.

Although so many of us were left to celebrate Thanksgiving without friends and families this year, we can all agree that we have at least one thing to be grateful for: Bad Bunny’s third album of 2020.

Despite all the odds imposed against us thanks to a global health crisis, Bad Bunny has made 2020 his year. He’s now released three complete albums along with several solo tracks and has even started work on his acting debut in the Netflix series Narcos: Mexico.

And although we’re grateful for this new album – which has some serious bops on it – many aren’t exactly celebrating the release. Many fear that this may be his last album, as rumors swirl that San Benito is going into retirement.

Bad Bunny surprise released his third album of 2020: El Último Tour Del Mundo.

Bad Bunny is setting fire to 2020 with album after album and hit after hit – and all of it despite much of the world’s attention being on the Coronavirus pandemic. Despite all the odds, our San Benito has released three albums, including his most recent one, El Último Tour del Mundo, which dropped on Thanksgiving.

The artist took to social media to announce the new album, which debuted at midnight on Thanksgiving. In addition to his recent hit, “Dakiti,” with Jhay Cortez, the album also features collaborations with Rosalía and ABRA.

El Último Tour del Mundo follows the March release of YHLQMDLG, which made history as the highest-charting Spanish language album ever, and his surprise follow-up in May, Las Que No Iban a Salir. 

Along with new music, Bad Bunny also blessed us with an incredible video for the album’s lead single.

The album came out at midnight Thanksgiving morning and racked up millions of views within hours of its release. But Bad Bunny wasn’t done surprising us yet.

Following a day full of Thanksgiving festivities, Benito also dropped a star-studded music video for the debut single from the album, “Yo Visto Así.”

The video features appearances from Ricky Martin, Sofia Vergara, Ryan Garcia, Karol G, Luka Sabbat and more, as Bad Bunny sings about the fact that he he’s going to dress however he wants to, no matter how anybody else feels about it. Now that’s an anthem I can get behind!

But many on social media are worried that this could be the reggaetonero’s final album.

Of course, fans of El Conejo Malo were quick to celebrate the new album. In fact, two tracks from the album (“Dákiti” and “La Noche de Anoche”) are already two of the top 10 most streamed songs on Spotify. But others became suspicious given the album’s name, El Último Tour del Mundo. It caused speculation among fans wondering if he was planning on retiring.

Fans are worried that the album might actually live up to its title and signal Bad Bunny’s early retirement. Although he hasn’t yet confirmed or denied the rumors, the truth is that the reggaetonero is already working on new music with Rosalía, so we still have at least a bit more music to look forward to.

There’s speculation that the music giant wants to spend more time to focus on his acting career, especially now that it’s been announced he’ll be making his acting debut in Netflix’s Narcos: Mexico.

It all stems back to a track from Yo Hago Lo Que Me De La Gana.

On “<3,” the final track from Yo Hago Lo Que Me De La Gana,  Bad Bunny  promised fans he would release another album in 9 months–and he did exactly that. 

“Y en nueve mese‘ vuelvo y saco otro / Pa‘ retirarme tranquilo como Miguel Cotto,” Bunny said on the project he released back in February, promising both another release in November and also, his retirement. 

Now that he’s made good on the first promise, it remains to be seen as to whether or not he will follow through on the second half. Hopefully, that’s not the case.

There’s even rumors that El Conejo might be leaving music – at least temporarily – to focus on politics.

Aside from subtle hints dropped by Bad Bunny himself and a flurry of rumors from concerned fans, a prestigious Cuban clairvoyant has also come forward with her own predictions on the future of Bad Bunny.

Mhoni Vidente, a Cuban fortune teller, has said that Bad Bunny will retire from music to devote himself to politics: “About Bad Bunny I see that in the future he will be president of Puerto Rico, governor, that he is going to be in politics and that he is going to bring a new era in political matters to all his people in the United States and Puerto Rico.”
