MALUMA Releases 11:11 Album

 

Today the global Latin music idol, MALUMA, releases his highly anticipated fourth album 11:11, alongside the music video for his new single ‘11PM’. 

The album, which includes collaborations with Madonna, Ricky Martin, Ozuna, Nicky Jam, Ty Dolla $ign, Zion y Lennox, Sech, Chencho and Farina drops one year after the release of F.A.M.E (May 18, 2018) which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Latin Albums chart  and earned Maluma a Latin GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album.

11:11 is a direct signal from our guides, angels and teachers to establish a moment of connection, synchronicity and awareness with ourselves, with the whole. It is a wake-up call, a door to meditate, to listen to our intuition, to look into our interior, time to stop and feel the subtle energies of the universe, it’s a call from our essence, a reminder of our true purpose on earth, it is a call to trust,” says MALUMA about the inspiration for the name of this album and tour.

The muse for 11:11 came to MALUMA earlier this year after a knee surgery that forced him to take time off from performing and touring. Instead of resting as he had planned, he worked non-stop alongside producer and composer Edgar Barrera with whom he also collaborated on F.A.M.E., and the result is an album that reflects the evolution of Juan Luis Londoño as an artist, with a body of music that is positive, fun and empowering.

With his MALUMA World Tour he has achieved unparalleled success, having sold over one million tickets in 105 worldwide concerts in 2017 alone and becoming the top concert-selling Latin artist in the world. In 2018, he broke records achieving full houses in all of his shows throughout the United States and Europe with his F.A.M.E. World Tour selling out the Madison Square Garden arena (New York), the American Airlines Arena (Miami) and two The Forums (Los Angeles), among others.

The international star of the urban genre Brytiago, announces the release of “La Mentira Remix” with his partners in crime Myke Towers, Rauw Alejandro, Sech and Cazzu.

“La Mentira Remix” is a collaboration of Brytiago and Rafa Pabón. The remix was produced by Roberto L. Figueroa, better known in the industry as Nekzum, Business Music. The remix is joined by the urban collective crew Myke Towers, Rauw Alejandro, Sech and Cazzugiving this remix a new edge and vibe.

The video was shot in Puerto Rico, themed around the uncovering and toxicness of lies and attraction. All done under the production of Ivan Joel and the art direction of innovator Abner Maldonado, better known as Abez.

“I spent a lot of time planning this remix. I personally called my colleagues and the truth is that the song exceeded all my expectations,” Brytiago.

Recently, Brytiago has been touring through Europe visiting cities such as Madrid and Milan, representing Puerto Rico to its fullest and creating growth and expansion of the urban genre beyond the Latin audience and onto the international market.

Latinidad in American Festivals

Until recently, urbane Latin music has been scarce in mainstream American music festivals. Thus, the 2019 Coachella latino lineup is a huge deal because it’s the largest and most profitable one on the planet.

In the past, only a few latin artists have performed at the prestigious venue – Cafe Tacvba and The Mars Volta. In 2010, Calle 13 was the first urbano latino artist to hit the stage. In 2018, there were a total of 11 latin artists such as Helado Negro, Ibeyi, Los Angeles Azules, Kali Uchis and Cuco. Fast forward to the present, there’s 17 latin artists slated to perform at this year’s Coachella – a total win for the culture! As we all know, this roster will and has already attracted a much more diverse audience.

As of late, J Balvin brought reggeaton and latin urbano back to the stage. His performance included reggeaton classics like “Oye Mi Canto” by N.O.R.E featuring Nina Sky and “Rakata” by Wisin y Yandel. Bad Bunny took to the stage on April 14th and returns again on the 21st to make a second iconic show. Los Tucanes de Tijuana (popular group from the late 80’s) graced the stage playing “La Chona” and other hits.

Chilean singer, Mon Laferte, has sold over a half of a million albums in Latin America and is also listed on this year’s lineup. Her career began on a singing competition show in Chile, Rojo.

In short, the amount of Latin as well as minority artists added to major festival lineups will continue to develop, namely due to Beyoncé’s Homecoming.

I have learned so much about music through world cultures and have been influenced by world class artists I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with over the years. It’s an honor to now showcase my own music, which I consider to be the sound of the ‘New Chicano Soul,’ alongside my band Souleros,” says Vargas

In addition to releasing the English and Spanish versions of “The Beat,” he releases his full-length, solo debut album in August (date tbd), preceded by several singles (including a guest appearance from Carlos Santana on a new version of “Oye Como Va”).
