Even though J Balvin is very successful in his native country Colombia and throughout Latin America, he is taking his career to a new level by going on tour with Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull.
“This tour is a dream,” J Balvin told VOXXI,”this is a huge opportunity to reach the Hispanic audience in the U.S. and also to expose my talent to a bigger audience, I’m still in shock.”
Spanish megastar Enrique Iglesias is just as thrilled to be touring with J Balvin, even sharing a “selfie” moment with the young urban singer.
“Guys I’m excited to announce that @JBalvin is coming on tour with @pitbull and I!!!,” Iglesias shared on social media.
His music transcends language barriers
At a very young age Jose Alvaro Osorio Balvín better known as JBalvin became interested in music.
The Colombian artist, originated from Medellin, shared with VOXXI that he started out in a rock band as a guitar player but it wasn’t until he moved to New York and lived in the “big apple” for sometime, that he fell in love with urban music and Hip Hop.
The 29-year-old singer still remembers how he felt when he step on a stage for the first time to perform his music.
'I was very anxious and scared on my first concert… I was eager to see how the audience was going to take it, it was an amazing feeling.”
The rising reggaeton star is always traveling and touring around the world and not long ago he was recognized in Romania as artist of the year in the Zu Music Awards.
“They don’t speak spanish but they feel connected with my music and my videos,” J Balvin said.
In addition, J Balvin confessed that his next big dream will be to conquer the global market and collaborate with different anglo artists such as Drake, Rihanna and Justin Bieber.
His success has been credited for his charismatic personality and hard working attitude but he revealed that the key to all of this is that, “he is just a young artist like no other with big dreams and huge desire to succeed.”
