Crossover King: Maluma Hits The Studio With Timbaland
Well, this is exciting! Maluma spent some time in the studio with Timbaland over the weekend. The Colombian superstar, who is currently enjoying a worldwide smash with “Felices Los 4,” shared a couple of pictures from the session on Instagram and described it a dream come true. It’s unclear at present if they are cooking up hits for the 23-year-old’s crossover album (he has spoken openly about working English-language material) or for the legendary producer’s long-overdue 4th LP.
“I don’t want leave out my Spanish or my Latin world, but I want to grow in this American world,” Maluma revealed when I interviewed him in March. “And to do it, I have to do it in English, because if I don’t, they are not going to understand what I say. So yes, I want to release some music in English, but I will try to keep the balance — songs in Spanish and English.” How far along is this plan? “I’ve been working in the studio with American producers… I think it’s going to be for my next album.” See the pics below.
