[WATCH | LISTEN] J Balvin and Khalid Share New Song 'Otra Noche SinTi'
J Balvin shares a new song and video featuring Khalid, the Grammy-nominated, chart-topping and platinum-certified star. "Otra Noche Sin Ti" arrives with a Colin Tilley-directed video and is a hypnotic call to an ex-lover. A seamless blend of slow perreo and R&B, the song effortlessly bounces from vocalist to vocalist and their delivery in both Spanish and English. Produced by up-and-coming talent Lexus and songwriter Keityn ("Tusa" and "Chica Ideal"), the song is the third offering from J Balvin's forthcoming album following previously-released singles "Tu Veneno," which Consequence of Sound called a "dance-able slice of reggaetón gold," and "Ma G," which Billboard said, "marks a return to Balvin’s rap roots."
"Otra Noche Sin Ti" also arrives following "Tu Veneno" debuting at #1 on the Latin Airplay Charts and Latin Rhythm Charts, and his collaboration with Karol G, "Location," climbing to the #1 spot just days later. These mark J Balvin's 28th and 29th songs to go #1, the artist making Billboard history as he becomes the Latin urban artist with the most #1 songs on the chart.
J Balvin is one of the most consumed multiplatinum artists today. He has over 48 billion career streams and more than 55 million monthly listeners on Spotify, making him the most-listened-to Latin artist on the platform and the sixth in the world, while also being the first Latin artist to reach one billion streams on Apple Music. His influence and reach transcend cultural boundaries; Balvin was named one of Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2020, is the only Latin artist with a collaboration with Jordan (which sold out in a minute), awarded in the Guinness World Record as the artist with the most nominations to a single Latin Grammy award show in its 21-year history, is the third superstar – and the first-ever Latin artist – to get a signature meal on the McDonald’s menu, named one of Forbes' 50 Most Creative from Colombia, and is VEVO’s most-watched artist worldwide and the #1 global Latin artist on YouTube, Spotify, Deezer and Shazam.
