The singer will make stops in Montreal, Chicago, New York and other cities including two nights in Los Angeles. Carey added a second date to her stop at the Hollywood Bowl and will now perform on November 17 and November 19.

Jenner and Bad Bunny were first linked in February. They have yet to confirm dating rumors, but the Gucci campaign pretty much makes it official and marks their first time working together as a couple.

Bad Bunny opened up about his relationship status in a Vanity Fair interview last month. “They don’t know how you feel, they don’t know how you live, they don’t know anything, and I really don’t want them to know,” he said. “I’m not really interested in clarifying anything because I have no commitment to clarify anything to anyone. I am clear and my friend Jomar … and my mother is clear. They are the only ones to whom I have to clarify anything.”

Prior to the Gucci campaign, the twosome had been spotted out at basketball games, concerts and dinner dates. And they’ve already netted plenty of travel hours, including jetting off to Italy for a Gucci fashion show during Milan Fashion Week.

The 29-year-old Puerto Rican three-time Grammy-winning superstar’s fourth take on the athletic brand’s Response CL arrives on Saturday, June 24.
