Let’s get right to it, Maluma dominated 2017, but we have a feeling this is just the beginning for him.
In the past 12 months, the Colombian superstar has completely blown us away, but we know there is so much more on its way.
From hit songs with Marc Anthony and Shakira to out of nowhere dropping three songs in a short film to breaking global social media records, that was 2017 for Maluma.
His infectious beats, signature look and the way he heats up the screen, it’s no wonder he’s become a household name—everywhere!
At the end of 2016, Shakira dropped her music video for “Chantaje” featuring the Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy, that track scored him three 2017 Latin Grammy nominations. In total, the star garnered a total of seven Latin Grammy nominations.
The star toured the world but also managed to find the time (we’re not sure how) to record an album and plan a US tour.
Not to mention, our shocked faces when Maluma dropped X, a short film, that includes three new songs including “GPS” featuring French Montana. Flo Rida also featured the star’s on his new track “Hola.”
When asked by La Opinion about his accomplishments this year Maluma said, “I feel really grateful, it’s a blessing from God, I came to this world with an extraordinary purpose, I came to show people that you can do it. I am a dreamer, and my dreams have taken me to where I am today, and I’ll keep going because this is only the beginning of my career. I am 23, and I believe that the best is yet to come.”
“I’m working hard to get to the next level,” he continued. “I believe that as an artist, the biggest honor is to have the love from your fans. And knowing that I’m one of the most followed on social media, knowing that I could have more songs playing on the radio right now, it gives me a lot of happiness and makes me hungrier every day, because the sky isn’t even the limit.”
