Colombian sensation J Balvin and Mexican songstress Becky G shook the block Thursday night (Oct. 1) at their highly-anticipated “La Familia” tour stop in New York City. The Playstation Theater in Times Square hosted a sold-out show to fans of both talented artists. The Inglewood native opened the show with fan favorites “Break A Sweat” and “Shower.” The Empire wild card also flexed her rapping skills with an original freestyle of her own.
The crowd’s anticipation heightened as the band prepared for J Balvin’s grand entrance. The heartthrob was greeted with a collective roar, made of up voices from around the world. Balvin hurdled through hits like “Ginza,” “Ay Vamos,” and his Nicky Jam-assisted “Travasuras.” During his set, Balvin treated fans to a dope freestyle over Dr. Dre’s “Still DRE” and a guitar instrumental cover of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” How cool is that?
“La Familia” tour will continue this weekend in Washington D.C. and Boston before hitting the Midwest and wrapping up in San Diego, California. Check out exclusive photos from the show in the gallery above.
