Maluma (Juan Luis Londoño Arias) is one of Colombia’s sexiest reggaeton and latin trap singers.
He is very handsome and women seem to be crazy about him, but Maluma is one of the Medellín-based artists who is redefining reggaeton with a softer, more romantic, more melodic sound. Reggaeton is growing up. Nobody is 21 forever.
It’s Maluma Baby!
In January 2021, Maluma became the first man on the cover of Elle Magazine with the cover headline, “It’s Maluma Baby!” The internet picked up the baby theme with thousands of memes by women lamenting that the very handsome artist had a baby with someone else.
In the article, he talks about the joys of being forced to stay home in Medellín, Colombia with family and friends during the COVID-19 pandemic. He also talks about working with Jennifer Lopez on the new movie “Marry Me” scheduled for release in May.
Stardom can be dizzying, but Maluma seems like real good guy.
