Jordan To Reportedly Release New Drake Collab, "OVO" Air Jordan 12s Next Month

Drizzy and Jordan team up again for another fire sneaker collaboration. 

It is no secret Drake loves Jordan brand. With successful collaborations in the past with the Air Jordan 10 Retro in white and more recently also in black, Drake is back at it again with an upcoming release of an "OVO" inspired Air Jordan 12 Retro. The sneaker looks beautiful with white leather accented by gold. With the October's Very Own seal on the bottom of the shoe, the iconic Jordan model will be shown in a color way never before seen on the 12s which were originally released in 1997.

The Air Jordan 12 is best known for being the shoe Michael Jordan wore during his legendary performance in game five of the 1997 NBA finals. Known now as "The Flu Game," Jordan dropped 38 points and lead the Bulls to victory despite having flu-like symptoms the whole time before, during, and after the game.

The release for the "OVO" Air Jordan 12s is rumored to be set for late July, and will have hypebeasts running wild with anticipation.

He Won: Lil Nas X Teams Up With Wrangler for Capsule Collection

Lil Nas X's clever Wrangler name drop on his No. 1 hit "Old Town Road" has resulted in a limited edition capsule collection with the denim retailer.

Announced Monday (May 20), the Wrangler Lil Nas X Collection comes in conjunction with Columbia Records and features behind the scenes gems from his cameo-heavy "Old Town Road (Remix)" music video. Importantly, the pieces are actually stylish with tees baring his name in various styles and shorts with Wrangler written on the booty.

Wrangler's site notes the capsule is inspired by the hit song and "offers fresh remixes of classic Wrangler styles for the kind of modern cowboy that can’t be put in a box."

"As an iconic brand in fashion, we have shown up in music, film, and popular culture for decades, but this is the first time our jeans are actually the key to unlocking a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a chart-topping hit,” Jenni Broyles, VP/GM of Wrangler North America, said in a statement to Complex. “We’re incredibly excited about the success of ‘Old Town Road’ and our partnership with Lil Nas X. It is another great example of the power music – and in our case, fashion – has to unite and inspire us all.”

The collection is also fairly priced with items ranging from $39 to $139. It's easy to applaud the 20-year-old as he's beat the genre odds with "Old Town Road." The song, which was originally removed from the Country Billboard charts, has been the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks.

The Georgia rapper recently announced on Saturday (May 18) that his first EP, 7, will arrive in June. Lil Nas X didn't share much about what his "stans" and other listeners could expect from his upcoming project, but assumptions can be made from his Instagram posts featuring fellow artists like country singer Austin Michaels, Noah Cyrus and Kelly Rowland.

Yumm: Chick-fil-A Considers Adding Vegan Options To Menu

Chick-fil-A will jump into the growing market of vegan fast food with the addition of vegan options to their menu.

Speaking with Business Insider Tuesday (May 14), Senior Director of Menu Development Amanda Norris has looked into the idea of more meat-free options for several years. The only meat-free options on the current menu are their fruit cups and signature waffle fries.

“We’re definitely aware, and I would say we’re always interested in, what’s happening in food,” Norris said. “Specifically … a vegetarian option or a vegan option is something we’re looking at, we’re thinking about, and have (done) some (research and development).”

Norris added it normally takes about 18 to 24 months for a new item to appear on the menu so the idea of a vegan Chick-fil-A sandwich won't be available just yet.  "I think it's good. People like a lot of different choices," Chick-fil-A customer Carl Smith told Atlanta's WSB-TV, where the food chain was first created. "As long as they keep their standard favorites, I think having more choices is good, too."

Chick-fil-A is just one fast food giant who is jumping on the vegan wave. KFC recently announced plans to sell vegan chicken sandwiches while Burger King, Carl's Jr., Del Taco and Taco Bell have vegan options.

But it's hard not to credit the popularity of Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat for giving customers healthier options. It's also secured a few bags. CNBC reports demand for meat substitutes made a cool $1.44 billion in 2018 with Euromonitor International predicting the number will reach $2.5 billion by 2023.

Impossible Foods also announced Monday (May 13) their funding has reached $300 million. The company partnered with the likes of restaurant chains like Counter Burger and White Castle. Even Ghostface Killah has shared an appreciation for the Impossible burger.

"It's dope. The first time I tried it was in Brooklyn. You could have sworn you were eating regular meat," he told VIBE in 2018. "I had to really ask them and they said, "Yes, it's really a plant-based food." It's the best plant-based vegan food that I've ever tasted, ever."

Rihanna To Collaborate With LVMH For Fenty Luxury Line

According to reports, Rihanna will be the first woman in history to create an original brand with LVMH, who will be collaborating with the mogul on a new luxury Maison.

Per a press release from LVMH, the Maison–called Fenty– will be created with Rihanna's vision in mind, and will release "ready to wear, shoes and accessories" in the Spring of 2019. She will be the first woman of color to head an LVMH Maison, and Fenty is the first new fashion house for the group since 1987.

“Designing a line like this with LVMH is an incredibly special moment for us," Rih said in a statement. "Mr. Arnault has given me a unique opportunity to develop a fashion house in the luxury sector, with no artistic limits. I couldn’t imagine a better partner both creatively and business-wise, and I’m ready for the world to see what we have built together.”

“Everybody knows Rihanna as a wonderful singer, but through our partnership at Fenty Beauty, I discovered a true entrepreneur, a real CEO and a terrific leader," Bernard Arnault, Chairman and CEO of LVMH, added. "She naturally finds her full place within LVMH. To support Rihanna to start up the Fenty Maison, we have built a talented and multicultural team supported by the Group resources. I am proud that LVMH is leading this venture and wish it will be a great success.”
