Bad Bunny’s lyrics on Eladio Carrión’s new song, “Coco Chanel,” are raising speculation about a possible feud between him and Phoenix Suns player Devin Booker.
Some social media users have pointed to lyrics involving Scorpio signs and a Puerto Rico versus Phoenix comparison as evidence that Bad Bunny — aka Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, the top-streamed artist of the past three years on Spotify — is alluding to both Booker and the woman the singer is currently romantically linked with, Kendall Jenner. Booker and Jenner reportedly broke up after two years last fall.
Though it’s not clear when Bad Bunny reunited with Carrión to write and record the track, his connection with Jenner is recent. Rumors that they were dating have grown over the last month following sightings of them around Los Angeles at restaurant outings and events.

‘Coco Chanel’ lyrics might be about Kendall and Devin
Carrión’s album, “3men2 Kbrn,” released on March 17 with “Coco Chanel” featuring as Track 8. The 3½-minute song makes references to luxury cars and fashion labels, Italian cities and food and what seems to be a hot-and-heavy relationship.
A line involving “dangerous” Scorpios — “Las de escorpio son peligro” — that’s followed with a comparison of the heat of the sun in Puerto Rico versus Phoenix — “Pero el sol de PR calienta má’ que el de Phoenix / Ella lo sabe …” — in the first verse raised eyebrows.
Jenner’s birthday is Nov. 3, and her astrological sign is Scorpio. Booker is a shooting guard for the Phoenix Suns, so the second line could potentially allude to Bad Bunny being a better suitor than a rival in Phoenix — and the song’s female subject knows it.
The line that immediately follows includes references to Milan and Rimini, Italy — and Jenner walked for Prada during Milan Fashion Week in late February. The bridge mentions the Met Gala bathroom, and Bad Bunny made his debut at the major New York fashion event in May 2022. Jenner was also there, but the two were not linked at the time.
Some fans pointed to some other references, such as the subject of the song looking good in a little bikini, solidify the lyrics’ connection to the model.
Devin Booker allegedly responds to Bad Bunny’s possible diss
According to RapTV and its reggaeton section, @reggaetontvcom, Booker posted then deleted a comment on their Instagram post. The graphic reads, “The sun in Puerto Rico is hotter than Phoenix’s and she knows it” then “Is Bad Bunny throwing shots at Kendall Jenner’s ex, Devin Booker?”
The Instagram accounts followed this up with another news item that claims Booker wrote in response to the first post, “He worried about another MAN again.” The graphic includes a screenshot of the purported interaction.
