New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Following the worldwide success and 'eye-popping' critical praise of his yearlong Arcoiris ('Rainbow') Tour, J Balvin
recently shared that he has now been envisioning his new music through the lens of distinctive individual colors. With today's release of his new single and video for "Morado
" ("Purple"), the Colombian superstar shares a second sonic color from his palette in this series that began with last fall's 'head-spinning and hypnotic' "Blanco." Once again working with favorite and frequent creative collaborators such as SKY (song producer and co-writer), video director Collin Tilley, and Takashi Murakami (artwork), J Balvin
continues to develop his globally embraced distinctive style of Reggaeton - this time with an upbeat intimate party invitation in color appropriate regal surroundings.
A perfect fit for worldwide Pop, Dance and of course Latin charts, "Morado
"arrives this week as J Balvin
and The Black
Eyed Peas also continue to hold the #1 Latin Song in The United States, with their recent collaboration "RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)" in the top spot of Billboard's "Hot Latin Songs" chart for a second consecutive week.
Simultaneously, J Balvin
holds a current "Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album" GRAMMY Nomination for OASIS - his chart-topping album with Bad Bunny, and has just received three more iHeart Radio
Award nominations: Latin Pop-Urban Artist of the Year, Latin Pop-Urban Song of the Year ("Que Pretendes
" w/ Bad Bunny), and Best Music
Video ("Con Altura
" w/ Rosalía).
"J Balvin Is At The Top Of His Game - Just Look At The Latin Songs Chart.…J Balvin's biggest competition on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs might be J Balvin
…the chart underlines just how many smashes one man can claim at a time… there are plenty of reasons to suggest he is, in fact, the most successful and in-demand musician at the moment."- Forbes
