"I couldn't be more excited to announce my return to the concert stage—it is what I have been dreaming about for months and we are going to celebrate together like never before," said Maluma. This will be my fourth U.S. tour and I am planning a brand-new show full of surprises for my fans and lots of new music off my last two albums, Papi Juancho and #7DJ."
"Papi Juancho," the 22-track record marks the reggaeton superstar's fifth studio album and is a renascence to the artist's former reggaeton sound, a departure from his more recent pop-style music. Produced as the work of his alter ego (Papi Juancho) and conceived amidst solitude while in quarantine, "Papi Juancho" bears much of Juan Luis' essence. Maluma, born Juan Luis Londoño, formulated his artistic moniker Maluma from the first two letters of the names of his mother (Marlli), father (Luis), and sister (Manuela). Recorded with his longtime producer collaborators The Rude Boyz's (Kevin A.D.G. and Chan' El Genio'), with whom he has worked since his 2012 debut album ("Magia"), features long-established and current reggaeton artists, including Yandel, Zion, Randy and Lenny Tavárez.
Maluma has scored a stockpile of number ones recently, with his romantic "A.D.M.V." and urban hits "Que Pena" (with J Balvin), "Porfa" (with Feid, Sech, Nicky Jam, J. Quiles & J. Balvin) and "Feel the Beat" (with Black Eyed Peas). Conversely, it's his single "Hawái" making its mark this year, reaching number one on Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart for nine consecutive weeks; number one on Billboard's Latin Streaming Songs chart for 10 weeks; and number one on the Billboard Latin Airplay chart for four weeks. With "Hawái," Maluma has been at number one on YouTube's chart of the most-viewed videos worldwide for multiple weeks. He has also peaked the Billboard Global Exclusive U.S. chart and landed at number two on Spotify's Global Top 50 chart. Internationally, "Hawái" has reached number one on radio, Spotify and Apple Music in 17+ countries. Moreover, Maluma is the youngest artist to simultaneously hold both the number one and number two spots on Billboard's Latin Airplay chart and is only the sixth artist to achieve the feat (3x). To date, Maluma has produced 20 number one singles on Billboard's Latin Airplay chart.
A social media powerhouse, the Latin Grammy award-winner has amassed millions of fans and followers across all of his platforms—57M+ Instagram followers, 23M+ Facebook fans and over 7M+ Twitter followers. Maluma's popularity has officially bestowed the designation of most-followed Latin male artist on Instagram. In 2016, he was the first Latin male artist to surpass 10M followers on Instagram. His official YouTube/V.E.V.O. channel has more than 27M subscribers, having earned him a YouTube Diamond Play Button Award (exceeding 10M subscribers).
Since debuting on the music scene, Maluma continues to build his brand as a singer, songwriter and now fashion icon. Establishing himself as global fashion icon, Maluma was recognized as "Menswear Icon in the Making" and "Men's Fashion's Newest Muse" by Vogue. He was named one of G.Q.'s 2019 "Men of the Year" and has gained the endorsement of fashion designers such as Kim Jones (Dior), Jeremy Scott (Moschino), Olivier Rousteing (Balmain), Donatella Versace, Calvin Klein, Christian Louboutin, Louis Vuitton and more. In 2019, he made his first Met Gala attendance and is among the first Latin urban artists invited by Anna Wintour. Additionally, Maluma’s
