J Balvin has announced that his upcoming album Colors will be released in March.
While his two singles “Blanco” and “Morado” have now been released, the reggaeton artist will offer a larger set of tracks inspired by an array of colors – using different shades to bring his songs to life.
Derived from individual hues, international artist Takashi Murakami is set to create the vibrant work of art for the record. Balvin was spotted wearing exclusive custom Murakami merchandise, including his recent collaboration with Ben Baller at ComplexCon.
Produced by SKY, more singles are expected to be released before the album arrives, but no official details are now available.
J Balvin’s previous projects include a collaboration album Oasis with Bad Bunny in 2019 and his solo studio album Vibras in 2018. Oasis went on to peak at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 album chart, making the project its only top 10 record. Vibras reached No.15 (dated June 8, 2018) during an 18-week trek on the Billboard 200 Albums chart.
Although he didn’t have a # 1 record, he did get a # 1 single on the Hot 100 thanks to Cardi B and Bad Bunny with the 2018 summer jam, “I Like It”. Her solo single “Mi Gente” with Willy William and Beyonce reached third on the Billboard Hot 100, giving her her second top 10 on the list.
While his achievements in the mainstream charts are impressive, his record on the Billboard Latin Charts is even more impressive. It has eight No. 1 on the Hot Latin Songs chart with the following titles: “Mi Gente” with Willy William and Beyonce, “Ginza”, “X” with Nicky Jam, “Ay Vamos”, “La Cancion” with Bad Bunny , “China” alongside Anuel AA, Daddy Yankee, Karol G and Ozuna, “Bobo” and his latest single “RITMO (Bad Boys for Life)” with the Black Eyed Peas.
He has respectively three No.1 albums on the Best Latin Albums chart and four Top 10 albums on the same list. “Energia”, “Vibras” and “Oasis” all reached number one in the ranking.
J Balvin is one of the hottest stars in Reggaeton right now, proving his international fame on streaming platforms and YouTube. He was one of only two artists in the world to surpass 10 billion YouTube streams in 2019, and is the only artist to feature in the top five videos of the year (for 2019) on YouTube.
