Bad Bunny, the unstoppable force of Latin music, has dropped a new album that’s shattering record after record. Meanwhile, Shakira, another titan of the genre, has been tuning in and seems to be enjoying the beats. In a recent Instagram story, she hinted at a possible collaboration between the two.
Shakira posted a screenshot of the lyrics from Bad Bunny’s fresh track, “Thunder y Lightning.” The song seems to nod at Shakira and Bizarrap’s recent global sensation. Shakira’s cheeky response? “Let’s cash in and get paid together, then!”
The lyrics of Bad Bunny’s song, translated to English, read, “Now men cry, yes, but they don’t stop cashing in and getting paid.” This seems to echo Shakira’s own translated lyrics from her hit with Bizarrap, “Women don’t cry anymore, they cash in and get paid.”
While some fans interpreted Shakira’s words as a playful dig, others speculated that she was extending an invitation to Bad Bunny to create a joint track. One Twitter user wrote, “I wouldn’t be surprised if they already have a collaboration for her album. This could just be her way of teasing it.”
A Super Bowl Reunion?
Shakira and Bad Bunny, two of the biggest names in Latin music, have yet to collaborate on a song. However, they have shared the stage before, notably at the Super Bowl, where Bad Bunny played a supporting role in Shakira’s performance. The duo performed a medley of hits, including “I Like It,” “Callaita,” and “Chantaje.” Could this previous encounter hint at a future musical partnership? Only time will tell.
