About J Balvin
“Reggaeton’s Global Ambassador” - J Balvin is now one of the top streaming music artists in the world, regardless of language, and has developed a legion of fans represented by over 65 Million social media followers. Hailed by Billboard as “the biggest breakout act Latin music has seen in many years” and Pitchfork as “the face of modern Reggaeton, Balvin is leading a second generation of Musica Urbana stars that have propelled Latin music to an unprecedented global embrace. Simultaneously, Balvin has become Latin music’s strongest cultural envoy to both the fashion and pop art communities, while becoming one of the music industry’s most in-demand collaborators, and worldwide major festival performers.
2019 saw J Balvin perform in the opening segment of The GRAMMY Awards, named the Premios Lo Nuestro “Artist of the Year” for an unprecedented third consecutive time, collect his fourth LATIN GRAMMY and the “Favorite Latin Artist” American Music Award, and become the first Reggaeton artist on Saturday Night Live. Over the summer, J Balvin and Bad Bunny dropped Latin music’s biggest surprise and critically praised album of the year, with the release “Oasis”- which notched eight weeks as the #1 Latin album in the country, landed on numerous ‘Best Album of the Year’ lists and received J’s second GRAMMY nomination. Throughout the year, J Balvin also connected with millions of fans live by taking his stunning “ARCOIRIS (Rainbow) Tour across the United States and throughout the world, while further etching his name in Urbano music history as the first Reggaeton artist to perform on: the mainstage at Coachella, leading EDM festival Tomorrowland, and as the first-ever Latin artist to Headline at Lollapalooza.
Having spent 14 consecutive weeks in the #1 position on YouTube Music’s Global Artist chart, and achieving a record-tying eighth video in the exclusive Billion View Club, J Balvin concluded 2019 as one of only two music artists in the world to exceed 10 Billion YouTube views within the year. His dominance was evident on other platforms as well, as he spent the majority of the year as the only Latin artist in the Top-5 of Spotify, was named the year’s #1 overall artist for Deezer and Shazam, and Music Choice’s “Latin Artist of the Decade.” Most recently, J Balvin made a surprise performance appearance in the Super Bowl LIV halftime show, notched his impressive 20th #1 single and unveiled “Rojo,” “Blanco” and “Morado” as the first three songs and videos from his eagerly awaited upcoming new album “Colores”.
