On Friday (Jan. 19), J Balvin delivered what so many of his fans had been anxiously waiting for: “Machika” featuring Brazilian singer Anitta and Aruban newcomer Jeon.

After weeks of teasing cryptic soundbites and images, Colombia’s native son debuted his highly anticipated follow-up to the worldwide No. 1 hit “Mi Gente.” Balvin gathered a community of global music influencers and brought them to the mountains of his hometown of Medellin, a post-apocalyptic scene made for something like a war-cry.

“[Collaborating] with Willy William and then Beyonce helped internationalize my music but without departing from my culture, which I hold close to my heart. I am very excited about following up that success with ‘Machika’ — working with a truly international team of collaborators that stretches from Brazil, Afro-Caribbean and European EDM. It continues to bring the sounds of reggaeton into a global music environment,” he said of the new record, in a statement. 

J Balvin will make his first public concert performance of “Machika” on Saturday (Jan. 20), when he headlines the annual Calibash Concert at Staples Center.
