I started using Twitter a lot and realized I had a lot of fans. Then I saw that I can share my music on Twitter and share my YouTube videos on Twitter. That’s how I knew social media was going to be a platform to show my music. That’s how I started. I started with Twitter.
My boys asked me to write beautiful letters for their ex-girls so they could get them back. I thought, ‘I should be writing songs for myself.’
Everyone knows I’m a huge fan of Chris Brown and Justin Timberlake. For me, it would be more than an honor to work with these talented musicians.
I have a lot of artists who I just love to hear their music, and I’m a fan of them.
Ricky Martin is one of the artists I wanted to be growing up.
I like to show that I’m real.
It’s not only about the material things – I also have a spiritual side.
If I can’t go to my parents, then my parents come to me.
People should focus on my foundation, my projects, and everything positive and important that I am doing in Latin America and the around the world.
I was born in the technology era.
I’m trying to find the balance and do, like, ‘Spanglish’ music or some songs in Spanish and others in English or do a translation.
I’m an urban act.
It’s interesting that a lot of female artists want to collaborate with me.
I am not gay; I don’t have a relationship with Ricky Martin.
In Latin America, people want you to write beautiful melodies and words. But there are also songs that do well because they show the reality of life.
I’m still going to sing these songs because trap is a type of music very popular in the streets, and people want to hear it.
In Colombia, we have a lot of passion.
Ricky Martin is one of my idols in the industry.
I am a man who is noble. I have a good heart, but at the same time, I’m a little malicioso. There’s no way of hiding that side.
The team at ASCAP is a genuine family, and I am proud to be part of an organization that is home to so many legendary songwriters and composers.
When I started my career, I saw that everybody was using Twitter.
I love women.
I want to take a more international direction with my career.
I like to prepare each tour in a different way.
Sometimes I post something unwittingly that connects with women. But I never think, ‘OK, let’s take a shirtless picture for the girls.’
I found my voice singing pop and ballads, almost all of them Colombian artists. When I was 16, my family gave me a recording session with some Colombian producers, and that’s where I started my career.
I loved to sing in family parties, for my friends and family. That’s how I discovered my talent.
I played soccer when I was a kid. I started when I was 8 and played for 8 more years. I was pretty good. I used to train with Atletico Nacional, which is one of the most important teams in Colombia. I used to train every day.
Maluma comes from my mom, my dad and my sister’s names. The first letters of my mom’s name are Ma, my dad’s is Lu, and my sister’s is Ma.
I am very happy and honored to be part of the Sony ATV family.
I think that I could be an example to young people, and they know that dreams come true.
