New anthem: global Latin music star J Balvin and Skrillex join forces on a new single “In da ghetto” featured along with an official video
The new track includes elements of the 90’s hit “In De Ghetto” by David Morales and The Bad Yard Club feat Crystal Waters and Delta. Morales’ original was a staple of New York club culture in the 90’s, so it’s only fitting that Balvin, Skrillex and Tainy would reimagine it in their vision to serve as a new summer classic.
The Transformers news comes on the heels of last week’s announcement of Balvin’s collaboration with Kokies on two limited edition toys, a pink-haired and yellow-haired J Balvin figurine, both of which are now available for pre-order and will be shipped at the end of July. Finally, J Balvin is announcing NEÓN Punta Cana – an all-inclusive beach experience with headline performances right on the beach, club nights in Punta Cana, and pool parties at multiple different pools on the Punta Cana property, where all food and drinks are included, to take place this December in the Dominican Republic. NEÓN Punta Cana is an expansion of Balvin’s NEÓN series, which includes three sold-out weekends of performances by J Balvin and friends in Las Vegas this September.
J Balvin continues to champion all kinds of Latin talent, whether they be established powerhouses or emerging stars.
Balvin’s nomination for Top Latin Artist at the Kids’ Choice Awards Mexico, his announcement of a third weekend of his sold-out NEÓN festival in Las Vegas, and comes after he was revealed as one of the headliners for New York City’s Governor’s Ball this September
