J Balvin tweeted a few weeks back that he was spending time in the studio with Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Big Sean and Chance the Rapper. Today, the Colombian superstar continues with his string of behind-the-scene moments that suggests he’s now clocking in the hours with super producer Skateboard P and his young protégé Kap G. Not too shabby for the man who aspires to align himself with the Drakes of the music world.

On the heels of some major crossover initiatives like his Latino rendition of “Sorry” and his earlier appearance on the Today show, Balvin finds himself in the thick of his follow-up to La Familia B Sides (2014), and we, for one, can’t wait hear the end result later this year.
Balvin’s latest collaboration with Pharrell only heralds him as promising crossover artist, one who is helping resuscitate the reggaeton genre no less. So, pa’lante brother!
