About J Balvin

Colombian reggaeton artist J. Blavin had a year full of hits ripping up the airwaves with a variety of artists and across a number of genres. As he travels the world performing on stages for fans from all over, his 35M+ Instagram followers fans are always in the loop. He even used his clout on the platform to speak out about the lack of reggaeton representation on the Latin Grammys, a position shared with O.G. superstar Daddy Yankee. Despite speaking Spanish and English fluently, J plans to stay true to his Colombian roots by singing only in his native tongue, wanting to bring the spanish language and his culture to the mainstream.
