At only 24 years old, Maluma is widely considered one of the leading voices in Latin music and a bona fide global youth idol. Born Juan Luis Londoño, he formulated his artistic moniker Maluma from the first two letters of the names of his mother, father and sister.

Maluma is one of social media’s most popular artists with over 23 million Facebook fans, 5.1 million Twitter followers, and a whopping 32.2 million Instagram followers (making him the leading Latin male artist on Instagram). His official YouTube/VEVO channel has garnered over 8 billion views and has more than 14 million subscribers, having earned him a YouTube Diamond Play Button Award. With his Maluma World Tour he has achieved unparalleled success, having sold over one million tickets in 105 worldwide concerts in 2017 alone and becoming the top concert-selling Latin artist in the world. In 2015 he released his latest album Pretty Boy Dirty Boy under the Sony Music US Latin label which debuted at #1. In his first year and a half in the U.S. market Maluma garnered five #1 songs on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart. He is the youngest artist to simultaneously hold both the #1 and #2 spots on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart (with «Sin Contrato» and «Chantaje”) and only the sixth act to ever achieve the feat. To date Maluma has had seven #1 songs according to Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart.

He is currently touring the USA with his F.A.M.E Tour where, to date, every single concert has been sold out, including the Madison Square Garden arena in New York and two nights at The Forum in Los Angeles. Maluma drops his upcoming album, F.A.M.E on May 19th.
