Latin pop king J Balvin is set to release a new live concert film Bruuttal on DVD and digital through Eagle Rock Entertainment on 20 July. A Colombian reggaetón superstar and crossover hitmaker, Balvin is a leader of Latin music’s renewed international popularity with a fresh take on the sound. J Balvin is a game changer, breaking down international musical borders to make an indelible mark on the pop landscape with smash hits like ‘6AM’, ‘Ay Vamos’, ‘Ginza’, ‘Safari’ and many more.
Bruuttal celebrates Balvin’s Medellín homecoming spectacular, with an exhilarating special anniversary concert to show his gratitude to 14,000 fans. As both a proud global ambassador for Latin culture, and one of music’s most in-demand collaborators, Balvin is joined onstage by fellow Latin music superstars Nicky Jam, Yandel, Farruko, Zion y Lennox, and Jowell y Randy, amongst others.
J Balvin continues to successfully introduce Spanish-language music to a global audience, “by erasing barriers of races, colors, continents, genres or languages, we can achieve the whole world moving their head to the same beat”, as the Huffington Post so succinctly put it. He has picked up numerous media accolades, with the prestigious Rolling Stone suggesting he is “a creative visionary…on a mission to globalize reggaeton.”
Balvin has collaborated with major artists such as Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Pharrell, Liam Payne, Camila Cabello and Pitbull, Major Lazer and many more; and his videos have been streamed nearly 10 billion times on YouTube. He has won 2 Latin Grammys, 5 Heat Latin Music Awards, 3 Billboard Latin Music Awards, 4 LAMAs (Latin American Music Awards), an MTV EMA, 4 MTV Millennial Award, 3 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice awards, and many more. Look for his brand new U.S. VIBRAS tour to begin on 19 September in Fresno, California.
