"More than a decade into my career, I was missing that essence that inspired me from the beginning and I felt a need to communicate with the streets as well as fans who love the urban rhythm that has defined me from the start; that's why I decided to make this album. The Love & Sex Tape represents my duality and a 2022 version of my original sound,” Maluma expressed.
The new album includes 8 tracks, of which, 3 are recently released singles: Cositas de la USA, Mojando Asientos with Feid and focus track, Nos Comemos Vivos with Chencho Corleone, along with other collabs such as Sexo Sin Título with Jay Wheeler & Lenny Tavarez; and Tsunami featuring Arcangel & De La Ghetto.
