Drake Shows Off Spanish Skills and Hints at Musical Collaboration with Bad Bunny
After dropping two new singles “God’s Plan” and “Diplomatic Immunity,” on Jan. 21, Drake hints at at a forthcoming Spanish-language collaboration. The Toronto rapper posted a video on Instagram Stories alongside Latin trap artist Bad Bunny, born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, on Jan. 24.
In the video, Drake plays up his Spanish-language skills, referring to Bad Bunny, who sits next to him, as “el mejor” (“the best”). A snippet of an unidentifiable song being sung by the Puerto Rican star plays in the background as the two sit in what looks like a music studio. “El Conejo Malo” also shared a video of the two jamming on Instagram. At one point he asks Drake: “Do you have a message for all my Latin babies?” The rapper coyly responds: “I’m on the way.”
The two took their party outside the studio as photos were shared on Instagram of the duo in Downtown Miami, joined by fellow artist French Montana.
Excited fans immediately reacted to the possibility of a collab between the pair on social media. “Bad bunny and drake are together right now… my whole heart baby my whole god damn heart,” one fan enthused, while another wrote: “Drake and bad bunny are about to make greatness.”
Their joint musical effort will keep their hot starts to 2018 blazing. Bad Bunny currently holds three spots on the Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart, while Drake broke a first-day streaming record on Apple Music with his new single “God’s Plan, which was streamed over 14 million times worldwide, as announced on Jan. 21.
