Maluma, visibly annoyed, said: “Hey, friend, this is not funny”. So Will.i.am clarifies that Milan and Sasha’s mother is very precise in what she wants and how she wants to work, and that this ends up being a school. “I learned a lot from her for the way she works. She arrives with arrangements and tells you: point number 1, here I would change that, point two, I would do it this way, and so on ”. Then, J Balvin laughs again and interrupts him saying: “And then you go back to point 1”.
It didn’t take long for the hashtag #JBalvinIsOverParty to become a trend on Twitter, while Maluma was applauded for the defense of his friend with whom he shared the hit Blackmail, Besides Clandestine e Trap.
The interplay between Shakira and J Balvin started about two years ago. In 2018, the reggaetonero made macho comments about Rihanna, saying she was not a woman to marry, “just to be well.” At the time, it was rumored that he was preparing a partnership with his compatriot, who canceled the project due to his statements.
