Maluma Invited Fans To A Meet And Greet But Now It’s Being Called A Covid-19 Super Spreader Event

Maluma is one of the world’s biggest pop stars, so it should be no surprise that when he invites fans to a meet-and-greet, thousands of people would show up.

And that’s exactly what happened at his latest meet-and-greet in Miami, which is now being called a potential Covid-19 super spreader event after police were forced to shut down the event since so few people were following health measures.

Maluma incited a mob of his fans at a Miami meet-and-greet.

If Maluma was in my neighborhood, I probably would have been the first in line to go to his meet-and-greet. But now, thanks to Covid, his massive fandom might just prove to be deadly, after fans gathered for a Miami event to promote his latest EP.

Papi Juancho took to Instagram to alert his fans that he’d be making an appearance at a gallery pop-up, making sure to include in parentheses: ‘Wear masks.’ As soon as he arrived, fans swarmed his car as he stood up through the sunroof to greet fans which were lined up for blocks.

He greeted around 160 fans outside the gallery, before they were let inside the gallery 10 at a time, where social distancing was enforced. But with more than 1,000 people still in line, the Miami Police Department had to step in to shut down the event, as it violated Covid-19 emergency orders.

“We don’t know why they canceled it, we’ve been here for three hours” a young fan told Telemundo Miami, adding that the line was “really long.”

Maluma was in Miami promoting his latest EP, 7DJ.

Maluma, who’s promoting the recently released visual album “7 Días en Jamaica,” partnered with fellow Colombian artist Federico Uribe, who made art for the album using pieces of plastic. The artwork, which will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to environmental non-profits, was on display at the gallery

Maluma announced his EP last week on Instagram, sparking pregnancy rumors as he cuddled up to a woman’s stomach, which was scribed in marker with ‘#7DJ.’ 

‘It’s my sixth child… For the people who thought I was going to be a dad. This is my new baby, 7 Días En Jamaica. This is a project that I’ve been working on for a long time.’

Interview: Brazilian Superstar Anitta Talks “Girl From Rio”, Upcoming Album and More

@anitta | Latido Music by mitú

In our exclusive interview here at Latido Music by mitú with Brazilian Pop icon Anitta, the “Girl From Rio” singer talked to us more in detail about her new song which was inspired by “The Girl From Ipanema”, filming the music video, the rumors about a Maluma collab in the works and more.

Watch the full interview below:

The “Girl From Rio” music video pays homage to old cinema, but also celebrates the current vibrant Rio culture

The video is a celebratory homage to the resilient and vibrant culture of her hometown of Rio de Janeiro. Switching from 1950s cinema to today’s diversity in the city. Updating the melody of “The Girl From Ipanema” with a 21st-century twist, Anitta serves up a sassy, trap-beat-infused sexy ode to the ladies of her hometown. 

While writing the song, there were rumors in Brazil that Anitta might have another brother from her dad’s side. Turns out, that the rumors were true and Anitta decided to include her half-brother in the music video, which became a family affair.

Anitta also shared on her Twitter how proud she is about this project and the visual direction from Giovanni Blanco and Jeff Selis.

Anitta also talked to us about what it meant for her to win the Best Female Artist award at this year’s Latin American Music Awards, and how for a Girl From Rio like her to break into the Latin music industry is a huge honor.

Anitta has been keeping busy lately promoting “Girl From Rio.”

Just this past Tuesday, Anitta had a beautiful performance from The Goodtime Hotel in Miami for Jimmy Kimmel Live!
