- J Balvin, Willy William ft. Beyonce - “Mi Gente”
The original version of this hit released in June 2017 is undoubtedly J Balvin's biggest success, with almost3 billion views on Youtube! Two months later, the artist had the luxury of inviting Queen B on a remix of the track, even more effective and what a motivating beat. The title also celebrates multiculturalism with the 3 languages spoken by the trio: English, French and of course Spanish, which takes center stage. ¡Qué calor!
- Cardi B, J Balvin, Bad Bunny - “I Like It”
One of J Balvin's other hits is his participation in Cardi B's song “I Like It”, with Bad Bunny. On irresistible summer rhythms, the three artists mix Cuban sounds and amazing beats for an exhilarating result. The title uses the famous melody of "I Like It Like That" by Pete Rodriguez and its video transports us to the exotic atmosphere of Cuba. A must have for the summer!
- Rosalia, J Balvin, El Guincho - “Con Altura”
The collaboration made sense! Rosalia is the most listened to Spanish artist in the world ... The crossing between her flamenco roots and the Colombian's reggaeton seemed inevitable! Now that’s done with “Con Altura”, the chorus of which we can't help but repeat over and over. Addictive in the club… And in the musical quiz with your friends!
- J Balvin, Bad Bunny - “LA CANCIÓN”
More introspective than most of his other singles, this song from his collaborative album with Bad Bunny has a captivating depth and romance. The production has a high and dreamy vibe, notably the few piano chords and jazzy trumpet notes. You will easily let yourself be rocked by these soothing sounds, to fall into the arms of Morpheus...
- “Ay Vamos”
This track marked a turning point in J Balvin's career as it was his first "Number 1" on the "Hot Latin Songs" chart. His music video was also the first of the artist to reach over one billion views - and also the first to achieve it among all artists of urban Latin music!
- DJ Snake, J Balvin, Tyga - "Loco Contigo"
Another prestigious collaboration of J Balvin, this time with the French star DJ Snake, for his latest album. The dancing but sexy rhythms make it both a summer and sensual hit. "Caliente", as Tyga says so well!
- J Balvin, Pharrell Williams, BIA, Sky - “Safari”
Released as a single from the album Energia, the track, produced with acclaimed singer and producer Pharrell Williams, came first in Spain and Mexico. It is not as famous with us but that's one more reason to share it with your friends during your music quizzes!
- Major Lazer, J Balvin - "Qué calor"
We recognize the impeccable production of Major Lazer, used to exotic beats, and who added to the usual rhythms of J Balvin, a touch of modernity. This powerful hit carried its own name.
This J Balvin sing is one of his greatest successes as he managed to stay 22 weeks at No. 1 spot on "Billboard's Hot Latin Songs"; making it one of the longest reigns to top the charts in 2015!
- Black Eyed Peas, J Balvin - “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)”
One of J Balvin's latest accomplishments is this partnership with the Black Eyed Peas, for the soundtrack of Bad Boys For Life, as well as for the hip-hop band's new album. We clearly recognize the sample of the song “The Rhythm of the Night” by Corona, remixed in some reggaeton spice. A real delight!
Now you're ready to crush it at the beach during your summer vacation! Will you be able to recognize all his singles in a musical quiz though?
