Toronto, ON – August 21, 2020 – Global Latin music idol, MALUMA, just surprised his fans with the release of his fifth album, entitled PAPI JUANCHO. The young artist who had disappeared from social media all week, re-appeared yesterday in an Instagram live, with the special announcement that he would release his latest production at midnight. The news sparked euphoria among his fans and spread like wildfire among his followers which surpass 100 million on his social media (Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter). PAPI JUANCHO is now available on all digital platforms to stream and/or download here.
PAPI JUANCHO is composed of 22 songs created while quarantined in Medellin, Colombia and Miami, Florida. It's the result of many years of hard work and the evolution of Maluma's alter ego; "Papi Juancho" is the "Dirty Boy" (from his second album Pretty Boy Dirty Boy) all grown up.
"This album is very special, it represents my essence, what I grew up with, the music I enjoy with my friends and my personal taste in reggaeton music. That's why I collab with artists that have inspired me. It's made with lots of love make my fans happy and also to make myself happy. I want people to really enjoy and have a great time with this music, that's the essence of Papi Juancho," the artist expressed.
"Its a very complete and detailed album. For example, the track 'Medallo City' is a trap mixed with salsa, a genre I hadn't experimented with in my music, and all of what it says in the lyrics, is slang we use in Medellin, specifically in Envigado, where I grew up. I want to show my culture and I want people to see where I am from, I'm from Medallo City,"he added.
Produced by the Rude Boyz (Kevin ADG y Chan "El Genio"), who have worked with Maluma since his first album, PAPI JUANCHO's 22 tracks were written by Maluma alongside Edgar Barrera, Kevin ADG, Chan "El Genio", Miky La Sensa, Vicente Barco, Juan Camilo Vargas among others.
