Maluma discusses the process behind his new ‘Papi Juancho’ album. “I’m very excited because I’ve been working on this album for the whole quarantine since I had to postpone my tour. I went back to my house in Medellín, and I had a lot of time to think and do the music that I really like. I’m really excited because from the first song to the last one; people are going to feel my essence.” The Colombian singer-songwriter continues, “This is the music that I like doing. Every song is reggaeton, and we have those vibes throughout the whole album. I love different rhythms; I love reggae, hip-hop, R&B, but right now, this album is the music that I really love doing, and that is reggaeton.”
Promoting music during the global pandemic, Maluma expresses, “I’m just performing a lot. I can’t wait to go back on tour, but for now, we had the opportunity to perform at the VMAs.” He adds, “I think that people need this kind of thing. If I can heal a little bit through my music, even if people have to watch it from their homes, it’s always an honor. Even without a crowd, at least I’m helping a little bit and sending good energy to people in their houses.”
