Just A Bunch Of Reasons Why We Stan J Balvin — And You Probably Should Too

He has done a lot to put Colombia and Latin people on the front lines of music and fashion but he's also a pretty cool dude!

If you haven't heard of J Balvin, then there is a good chance you live off the grid.

His most recent hit was his collaboration with Cardi B and Bad Bunny on "I Like It".

He's also worked with some of the biggest artists in the music industry, like Queen Bey herself.

But he has also introduced us to new artists that we should be paying attention to, like Rosalía.

He started to pursue his music career in Medellin, Colombia in the early 2000s.

Now, he's making an impact by becoming the first reggaeton artist and even Latino to headline major music festivals.

His style is more popular within the streetwear scene but he's been known to make strides for bringing flair and color to men's fashion.

He likes to take a lot of risks with his personal style, including his hair.

His tours are full of that colorful and vibrant personality that he's sharing with the world in hopes of making it a brighter place.

Off stage, he seems like a very cool dude! His Instagram is full of incredible travel pictures.

He doesn't shy away from speaking about things that he's passionate about, like mental health.

He also seems like a fun guy to hang out with. He's not afraid to be the life of the party.

Let me not forget to mention that he's also a pretty attractive man.

To conclude, not only is J Balvin putting out some great music but he also seems like a genuinely amazing person.

And I would know — because we're best friends!
