J Balvin has become the undeniable leader of a second-generation Reggaeton revolution propelling Urban music back to the forefront of Latin music worldwide. His song “Mi Gente” was the third most watched YouTube video globally in 2017, even though it was not released until halfway through the year on June 30. It vaulted to No. 1 on Spotify’s Global 50 Chart, replacing Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber’s “Despacito,” becoming the first fully Spanish song to be the top of the chart. At over 1.68 billion views, it is the third fastest video and fastest ever Latin video in YouTube history to reach 400 million views. “Mi Gente” reached No. 1 on Spotify Global for four consecutive weeks, making it the first fully Spanish song to accomplish this record, and it is the only Spanish language song to make Rolling Stone’s Best Songs of 2017 list. The song is on YouTube’s overall Top 10 Videos of the Year for 2017, making J Balvin the only artist to appear on the list in two videos. He also appeared on seven of the Top 30 Hot Latin Songs of 2017. After achieving incredible success with “Mi Gente,” his highly anticipated follow-up single “Machika” featuring Anitta and Jeon Arvani debuted at No. 1 in 12 countries, was the most-watched music video on YouTube in less than 24 hours of its release date and reached over 25 million views in three days (with over 99 million views to date). J Balvin, who has collaborated with Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, French Montana, Pharrell and more, also is the recipient of more than 35 awards, including two Latin GRAMMYs, five Latin Billboard Awards, eight Premios lo Nuestro, and three Premios Juventud.
