Maluma is the stage name of award-winning Colombian pop singer, songwriter, and rapper Juan Luis Londoño Arias.

Possessed of a sweet, grainy tenor voice and streetwise yet romantic delivery, the pop urbano was able to cross over from a reggaeton audience to the mainstream thanks to infectious early singles such as “Obsesión” and “Miss Independent”. Since 2015, Maluma has been charging toward world domination with a steady stream of videos, charting singles, albums, and guest spots – including a 2019 duet with Madonna on “Medellin,” whose video racked up 29 million views in its first few months.
