“Unfortunately, J Balvin and Roddy Ricch are no longer performing. As with every awards show, there are always last-minute talent changes.

“Unfortunately, I won’t be performing at this year’s VMAs as announced. My team and I did everything in our power to make this work, due to COVID compliance issues at the last minute we had to call off the performance. My team and I are safe and everyone’s health is a main priority, as well as giving a quality performance. I appreciate MTV for the opportunity to perform and I hope I can see y’all next year. STAY SAFE,” Roddy wrote on Instagram.

J Balvin Drops 'Colores': Album Stream & Download - Listen Now!

J Balvin‘s fourth studio album, Colores, is out now!

The Colombian superstar was set to release Colores on midnight on Friday (March 20), but instead, made the record available for streaming exclusively on Spotify last night at 7pm EST (March 19) and presented as a visual album dubbed the Colores Experience.

For each of the 10 songs, all named after colors, Balvin himself will lead a guided meditation that channels the color and explain its relationship to the music.

“The idea of making Colores came to me in a moment of leisure,” said Balvin in a press release. “I was calm and I got the idea of naming the album Colores. And I thought… ‘Why not name each song after a color?’ Each person will have their own perception of each color [in] the album. Maybe they can close their eyes and [‘Rojo‘] isn’t red to them, but blue.”

To coincide with the release, J Balvin also dropped the music video for “Amarillo“!
