The beyhive is buzzing.
Icy Park, the third installment of Beyoncé's Ivy Park x Adidas collaboration, is set to drop this afternoon. The multi-platinum artist teased the new line over the last month via her social media posts, which featured celebrities like Hailey Bieber, Gucci Mane and Kaash Paige.
Beyoncé introduced her activewear line in 2016 in collaboration with Topshop’s Sir Philip Green. The line launched with 200 styles at 12 retailers — including Topshop, Net-a-porter and Selfridges — and in 50 countries. According to WWD, following a series of sexual harassment allegations against Green, Beyoncé bought back the Topshop shares, giving her control of 100 percent of the brand. In April, the singer teamed with Adidas for an Ivy Park relaunch with footwear and clothing. Beyoncé still retains ownership of the line.
The Icy Park collection drops today at 4 p.m. ET on Adidas.com and select stores globally on Feb. 20 at 10 a.m. ET. You can also find the line at the following vendors: ASOS DTLR Finish Line Foot Locker GOAT JD Sports Nordstrom Sneakersnstuff SSENSE StockX.

As if being an award-winning actress and singer weren't enough, Lopez burst into the fashion world in 2010 through a licensing deal with Li & Fung’s U.S. division and launched a line of clothing made in collaboration with then-husband Marc Anthony at Kohl’s. Following the pair's divorce in 2014, the line was separated into two brands. Lopez’s line includes contemporary fashion, accessories and footwear and is still sold at Kohl’s according to WWD.
Jessica Simpson may not be making much music anymore, but she's making major dollars.
