If I can’t go to my parents, then my parents come to me.
I started using Twitter a lot and realized I had a lot of fans. Then I saw that I can share my music on Twitter and share my YouTube videos on Twitter. That’s how I knew social media was going to be a platform to show my music. That’s how I started. I started with Twitter.
I am very happy and honored to be part of the Sony ATV family.
That connection that I have with my fans is really special, and every time, when I have moments, when I have free time, the only thing that I think about is what I’m going to post, what I’m going to say to my fans.
I was known for singing romantic songs to women, but I can also be that guy talking about why you can’t be the only girl for me.
Ricky Martin is one of the artists I wanted to be growing up.
The team at ASCAP is a genuine family, and I am proud to be part of an organization that is home to so many legendary songwriters and composers.
I found my voice singing pop and ballads, almost all of them Colombian artists. When I was 16, my family gave me a recording session with some Colombian producers, and that’s where I started my career.
I’m an urban act.
Of course my parents are picky about the girls I date; my parents watch out for me.
I’m trying to find the balance and do, like, ‘Spanglish’ music or some songs in Spanish and others in English or do a translation.
I played soccer when I was a kid. I started when I was 8 and played for 8 more years. I was pretty good. I used to train with Atletico Nacional, which is one of the most important teams in Colombia. I used to train every day.
Everyone knows I’m a huge fan of Chris Brown and Justin Timberlake. For me, it would be more than an honor to work with these talented musicians.
I loved to sing in family parties, for my friends and family. That’s how I discovered my talent.
I love women.
Sometimes I post something unwittingly that connects with women. But I never think, ‘OK, let’s take a shirtless picture for the girls.’
My life was really focused on futbol, but as those things happen in life, my passion for music won over my passion for futbol. But I love what I do. I don’t regret it.
My boys asked me to write beautiful letters for their ex-girls so they could get them back. I thought, ‘I should be writing songs for myself.’
I’m still going to sing these songs because trap is a type of music very popular in the streets, and people want to hear it.
I like to prepare each tour in a different way.
It’s not only about the material things – I also have a spiritual side.
Ricky Martin is one of my idols in the industry.
It’s interesting that a lot of female artists want to collaborate with me.
People should focus on my foundation, my projects, and everything positive and important that I am doing in Latin America and the around the world.
I think that I could be an example to young people, and they know that dreams come true.
I am a man who is noble. I have a good heart, but at the same time, I’m a little malicioso. There’s no way of hiding that side.
I am not gay; I don’t have a relationship with Ricky Martin.
I have a lot of artists who I just love to hear their music, and I’m a fan of them.
Maluma comes from my mom, my dad and my sister’s names. The first letters of my mom’s name are Ma, my dad’s is Lu, and my sister’s is Ma.
I filled the margins of my schoolbooks with lyrics.
I was in Barcelona working with Shakira, and it was an amazing experience. She’s a great artist, and I learned a lot while working with her.
I like to show that I’m real.
In Latin America, people want you to write beautiful melodies and words. But there are also songs that do well because they show the reality of life.
