J Balvin Drops New 'Jose' Album, Announces 2022 Tour Dates

36-year-old Colombian star J Balvin has recently dropped his sixth studio album, Jose. Days after the new mixtape, the artist also announced his North American tour dates.

For over a decade, the artist has changed the face of Latino music with his smooth reggaeton textures and radio-ready heavy hitters. Throughout his career, J Balvin has hit many collaborative milestones, including tracks like “Mi Gente” featuring Beyoncé and “I Like it” with Cardi B. As he continues to work towards changing the narrative of Latinos in music and contributing to the ever-growing Latino cultural representation in the industry, his new album Jose arrives at a time when Balvin has claimed global superstar status. Not only is he a Latino sensation, but an international pop star.

Jose, named after the artist’s first name, is a 24-track mixtape that adds to his current inventory of established pop-reggaeton, trap and EDM sounds. Balvin taps Skrillex for “In da Getto” and hops on a track with Tokischa for “Perra.” The reggaeton star announced his 2022 North American tour dates over the weekend, taking Balvin through the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. The tour kicks off on April 19 in San Antonio for 25 dates. Check out the dates below. Tickets will be available for pre-sale on September 13 and for general sale on September 17 at Ticketmaster, AXS, Ticketera, SeatGeek and Evenko.
